On a roundabout in Canary Wharf.

That reminds me - outside my company's campus in Houston they are planning to build a roundabout (or traffic circle as they prefer) to ease the traffic conjestion at a crossroads. I think they should set up grandstands to cater for spectators watching the locals try and navigate it - it's going to be carnage!!

      We have a round about here and I hate it. People who should yield to me do not and I want to hit them. This is a great photo David. Are you ever going to share which company you work for? I have been dying of curiosity for quite some time now.

      Looks very good though , is it a natural color photo though and not B&W as some suggested with selective colouring to the "copper" is it ?

      Interesting image! Love the contrast of the color against the monochrome....beautifully edited! Traffic circles in Texas....might be interesting...

      Are they metal spikes or flags? I like the way you have used their colour in the B&W photograph...

      I really like your treatment of this - great use of selective colour. That new roundabout sounds like it could rival the Arc de Triomphe for sheer entertainment value! ;-)
