Picturing Petronas

The Petronas towers are a real tourist attraction.  Between their prime location, the unique skybridge and dominant presence they project, the towers attract a lot of attention.  Hey, they look pretty cool, too.

Looking up at the front side of the towers.  Malaysian flags hang everywhere.  Prime picture taking location.  How people think they're getting a decent image of the towers in the background is beyond me.

Big, powerful buildings require big, powerful sculpture.  Look closely and see James in the pic.  Petronas is oil so sponsoring a Formula 1 car is a snuggly marketing marriage.

The towers, with their refined ornamentation, lend themselves to abstraction.  For those people with long memories of James' early photography work, presenting a corner.
