Ah - three cranes and three cones -- and two temples(?) thrown in for good measure. Now, that's excellent.

Bent, thank you for kind comments, as always.  Glad you like them!

Thank you, Birna.  Yes, they are facilities of Zenko-ji temple in Harajuku, Tokyo.  Actually, tt was not until I PP'ed the images that I noticed the third crane and that there were "three" cones.   :o :o :o

Akira, fantastic #2.
It works too if you crop the bottom.
Congrats.

Or magical realism. What a subtle way to find the extraordinary.

Nice shots, especially number two. Those temples seem like strangers in a strange land. Also, your Apple store is massive, much more so than the one in in the local mall I frequent.

Thank you, Aguinaldo.  As for #2, I feel that the bottom space to balance with the space above the scene to enhance the surreal atmosphere.

Thank you, Armando.  Blue and red represents D and R respectively.  I just wanted to avoid the political topic...

Thank you, Paco.  Perhaps the darkness of the night help something extraordinary stand out, which make it easier to spot.

Thank you, John.  Glad you like the images.

Thank you, Tom.  Temples and cranes: I liked the way how they "don't" fit together.  :D  The Apple is indeed quite big, and it appears to look surreal on its own when it is lit at night.
