Here are some reflections from the canal tour in Punta Gorda, Florida. The first is Christmas lights in the canal water and the other two are of the boats and their reflections all decorated for Christmas. These popular, family-oriented cruises tour the residential canals to view Christmas lights, displays and decorations on homes, boats, seawalls and docks. Boats of all shapes and sizes cruise the canals during the evenings in December to enjoy this warm display of community Christmas spirit.
This office building is named The Gherkin. You can find it in London, UK. Its shape is most unusual. I loved the description of the building from an article in The Guardian so I am copying a small portion here – (fishnet stockings – remember those?)
The following is from the The Guardian article from May 5, 2014 by Oliver Wainwright. Here is the link – https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/architecture-design-blog/2014/may/05/londons-top-10-towers
“Also likened to a pine cone, a bullet and a stubby cigar – and perhaps least like its knobbly pickled namesake – the Gherkin was a mischievous arrival to the City skyline in 2003. A lovable, chubby creature, it has stood the test of time, holding its own in an increasingly choked cluster. Wrapped with a diagrid structure that makes it look like it’s bulging out of a pair of fishnet stockings, its rounded form was justified for reasons of aerodynamics (might it lift off?) and internal ventilation.”
