Upside Down Checkers.

PetaPixel [petapixel.com] had a good link about 'snapshots' vs. ‘stock’ photos [istockphoto.com] and I particularly find that interesting after I shot this ceiling the other day. I was waiting for a submarine sandwich at my favorite local ‘Italian’ restaurant, and happened to look up to see this recent renovation. Quite a site to say the least. I know it's kinda hard to tell, but it's actually orange and green, based on the loyalty to the school colors of the nearby University of Miami. They also have really, really good pizza and pasta. Mmm. Excuse me while I go raid the fridge. Cheers.

Cool colors and perspective, love how the straight lines look a little distorted. Looks like a fun place to visit.

Interesting way to decorate a ceiling! Great capture! I see they have a lot of pictures hanging on the walls. Photographs or paintings?

Now that's quite a different perspective, Mike.....very cool shot! Wish I wouldn't get on PB when I'm a little hungry....inevitably someone's post changes that to a lot hungry..
