  1. The juxtaposition is simply priceless. This is so very perfect on so many different levels! Great photo, my friend, GREAT photo!

    Only in NYC.

  2. Quite a lot of contrast! Chandelier is something you'll get to see in a grand hotel or a palace under a grand roof! Strange thing to have it under a tin roof. Nice capture!

  4. Flea market or the lighting district?

    I think my grandmother had a chandelier a lot like that one.

  14. I agree with TSannie - juxtaposition is absolutely the right word here and it is a classic shot! Great contrast.

  15. The chandelier looks totally out of place doesn't it? It would look better in my lounge. ;)

  16. Excellent photo! I love it.
    Now, I must have a chandelier to hang under our tin roof at the game lease in South Texas!!

  17. Sometimes we find beauty in the most unexpected places. This is a wonderful shot, that says so much. Close to perfect. So glad you love to look up, or we'd miss so many of your great shots. What a gift you have.

  19. I've seen this somewhere. Did we walk by here? Maybe I saw one elsewhere but found it fascinating in the contrasts. Love this!

  20. Hey this looks surprisingly like our shop/work/office. The Hubby is an electrical contractor you know and he ends up with a lot of these kind of things so he hangs them.

  21. This is a cool find. Simply great. And of course I would also like to know where and what this may be ;-). Some artist's studio?
