duplex | yin-yang | 5 tunnels

 

A diptych of the same picture
from the same photograph
(one side reversed)
to make an unusual abstraction.
The image is of the tunnel ceiling
showing the fluorescent lights
and the tunnel's curvature
- this is actually one of the subways
at King's Cross station.
London.
Azimuth means
"the arc of the horizon
between the meridian of a place
and a vertical circle passing
through any celestial body".

I thought the name seemed apt.
If you look closely, you will notice
that the left side canvas
is a slightly different colour
to the right side.
