Thanks for the information and for the links, that is quite interesting and not so common. I like your black on black, always a difficult exercize, but well appropriate to the subject. I like how you have defined the shapes by using the small amount of light reflected by the metallic parts.

Can understand why you like to visit, it must be very visually stimulating. And I thought governors only applies to people ;).
