That photograph is living proof that the camera does lie!

It is a great shot but as someone who works in that building (the one on the right of the shot)it looks nothing like this! It is chocked full of civil servants of varying colours and hues (there are a bunch of them who perform an eternal flame vigil at the front of the building with cigarettes). The building itself is a flat pack concrete panel, asbestos clad box from 1969. It has been painted cream and baby nappy brown to jazz it up! I see potential for the building but not at the moment (I have a dream where the concrete panel cladding would be painted like large pixels to form an image or pattern best viewed from a distance)

Donncha, you should work for the (now beleaguered) estate agents as a photographer as this is a great shot of an otherwise ordinary building.
