The roof of Leadenhall Market in London

In the city of New Crobuzon, there is a region known as "The Ribs". Something very large died there, and it's fossilized skeleton became a part of the city around it. I thought of The Ribs when I saw this, wondering (as it's a shot of something in London) if this could be at least a partial inspiration for Mr. Mivielle's odd piece of New Crobuzon real estate. One never knows.
As for this shot: WOW! I love the regularity of those ribs, the single hanging light, and the way they just seem to go on for ever, and ever. I love the shapes, the curve, the soft, relaxing color. Yep! I like this!
