      The old, reflected building is the Oakland, California city hall. When built in 1914, it was the tallest building in the US west of the Mississippi. I photographed it during the golden hour.

          Hi Leanne , i was referring to a sea wall over here in N.ireland 2 parts came down during a storm and it was at high tide at the time so both combined pushed a couple of parts over , it was was in an area called Carrickfergus.
