The new roof at Heathrow terminal 4 looks like it has a bunch of eggs hanging from it. I really like the new terminal don’t get me wrong. Its such a clever way of filling the headspace of the grand foyer.

As far as the picture is concerned it is not as experimental as my previous shots when you take into account the processing. However in many ways it is as due to the interesting framing I chose.

What do people think of the framing and the way that the background is in focus rather than the hanging “eggs”.

  3. I like this – I’m not sure about hanging eggs, though, perhaps more like flat dumplings? They remind me of the things hanging from the ceiling in the Albert Hall to improve the acoustics (I think it’s the Albert hall I’m thinking of). There’s lots to recommend the redesigned T4 I think – it’s a much more people-friendly space now.
