Triangle and dome

I still haven't had the time to walk through SM City North EDSA's Sky Garden, but I did pass near enough to take a photo of this triangular rainbow sculpture with the amphitheater's dome in the background. Not surprisingly, the amphitheater is called the Sky Dome. And I just thought of something: What do you call a rainbow when it's not bow-shaped? :)

UPDATE: The artist, Joel Ferraris, has informed me that the title of this sculpture is "Prism 24."

Very unusual combination of the green garden and the metallic sky dome and the sculpture. What do these set of triangles represent?

There are rainbows that are not bow shaped?!

For some reason I really like the metallic look with the natural green surroundings.
A rain-angle??

This shot is amazing! Great composition.

James said...

Cool shot Hilda. This reminds me of something from a sci-fi movie.

Leif Hagen said...

Funky, cool and hip! Hip snap, Hilda!

Vogon Poet said...

James is right this looks like a sci-fi movie set!
I don't know the name of a pointed rainbow, but I like it!

Lois said...

I like that picture Hilda! It reminds me of something you would see in one of those old movies where they were trying to depict what they thought the future would look like.

JM said...

Both structures are fantastic! I really like them as well as the composition.

Very cool shot. Straight lines and circles. Geometry at it's best.

Interesting lines in this shot. Hilda the building on my post that you commented on, is being pulled down to make way for a newer block of flats.

with this perspective, one might even wonder it's on top of a mall.

great shot!

Laurie said...

Wow! These structures are truly amazing. Love this shot, Hilda!

Jacob said...

Wow, what a surprise! This is so unlike anything I've seen of Manila! It's beautiful, though.

The answer to your question is a colored laser. ;-)

I don't have a clue.

I like how the sun is glinting on the sky dome. Very funky shot :)

I think this is perfectly framed. Round and angular, natural and artificial, metal and wood. Splendid!

Nice looking photos.

Unbelievable scene. It is SO futuristic. Thank you for continuing to show us the sights and surprises in Manilla. Just great shots, Hilda!

Two very striking designs!

Very futuristic — I like the contrast between the two shapes.
