    Very nicely spotted Rob. Is she going up, or down?

    Angels are sexless, Chris, or non-binary neutral, or whatever the latest term is. "They" (to use the politically-correct identifier!) is descending into Hell, or Cockburn Street, as it is otherwise known. :)

    Naming is part of the fun.

    Well spotted! You have turned what at first would be regarded as a drab scene into a facinating image.
    Like the name too, I read a lot of urban fantasy novels.

    Cheers, Dave. I thought it was an okay shot, until I thought of the name. Suddenly it was a really good shot! :) The power of a name.

    "It" surely! ;)

    Looking down to see which poor soul below it will fall one. Fabulous image. A shame the window wasn't dirtier though!

    Oh, dirty enough for me. I wonder how many times it has been photographed, as the window I'm looking out of belongs to the STILLS photography centre. I dare say it is used to posing for the cameras.
