My Peachtree Street: Braless

From time to time the EarthLink building reveals to me its secrets, at times in unexpected ways. Here, it has exposed its "exhaustive" sexiness. Years go by, but it hasn't flunked the pencil test yet.

Sexiness... pencil test... I guess I'm feeling a bit lost with the description, but I really like the photo. The geometry and perspective are both great.
vz-nostalgia: Hahaha. Poor lost Ms. Jewlya. I hope you'll find your way back after reading below.
The pencil test... I'm a bit embarrassed explaining this to a woman, as I thought every lady knows this. Here's a quote from the wikipedia:
"An informal test for determining if a woman needs to wear a bra. A pencil is placed in the fold beneath the breast and chest. If the pencil does not fall, the woman has "failed the pencil test" and needs to wear a bra".
Hope this helps. smile

But why are they different shapes? It would be hard to find a bra to fit.
vz-nostalgia: Oh Ian. I guess it's been a while since you saw a lady with no bra. smile There is no woman with absolutely identical in size and shape breasts. Don't believe me? Just ask your female friends. smile

Olala- who ever had thought that such a trist (B&W suiting) building could expose some amusing details? Funny title and nice perspective- a wise man once said to me considering male behaviour: "Do always think of 'that' but never speak about 'that'!
vz-nostalgia: Ha. This "wise man" wasn't that wise after all, Ms. Philine, if he revealed to you the most guarded secret behind every man's thought process. I consider him a traitor. smile
You have a vivid imagination! I could imagine these with propellors on them on an aeroplane!! Perhaps it's an age thingtongue
vz-nostalgia: smile Well, a friend of mine said after looking at this picture: "Only an architect would be able to hear these things from a building!" I think she's right. smile

Hmmm!
Look more like gonads to me!

Once again, your perspective leaves me a little breathless! I find people look at me strangely, now that I stumble about the city staring up the walls of tall buildings! [grin]
vz-nostalgia: Hope you caught your breath back, Ray. Otherwise, I'd feel guilty. smile

Questions,questions, questions - what are they, why are they different,what causes the patterns, which way is up, is it as ugly as it looks? Certainly a puzzler!
vz-nostalgia: Hahahaha. Ron, I see you're very inquisitive person. I'm afraid I have no answers to all of your questions. That's one of the pleasures we have, to dig for answers to life's persistent questions. smile

Mm, now this is an interesting discussion you have started V but I'm just going to enjoy this image.
vz-nostalgia: Whatever pleases your heart and mind, Ms. Scarlet. smile
Very interesting Vik: I don't know which way I'm looking here!
vz-nostalgia: Oh, it doesn't matter which way you look at it, Chris. What matters is, do you see what I see? smile

'Let the ladies to see the stupid mechanical devices in them'.......where is my pencil wink.......I just had to smile....and I walked on...
vz-nostalgia: Your smile is all I need, Ms. Astrid. smile
How big is that pencil??
Nice composition.

The pencil test was also used in the south african apartheids-era to determine race. This time you pushed a pencil from the front into the person's hair. If it slid out again the person's white, if not (s)he's black. Never knew to this day how they applied it to bald people. Now you can imagine my first thoughts reading about the pencil test smile

Gonads, braless. My oh my what great imagination. Like the geometry in this picture.
vz-nostalgia: Oh my, I've never heard of these tests, Louis. Were the testers all blind? How in the world can't one tell a black person from a white one just from looking at them?

Louis' comment was necessary and I thank him to have remembered of the apartheid-era! And reading that we Germans have to remind of the bad, terrible methods of the Nazi's to determine the "non- Arian race". Your pic has two sides- a funny one and a serious one!
vz-nostalgia: I'm always thrilled, when people have a different take on my photographs, Ms. Philine.

It's good way of looking things, up. For the pencil test, I haven't do it for years smile may be, breastfeeding 4 babies make them ... mmmm .... differents smilesmile
vz-nostalgia: Breastfeeding most definitely will make them... let's say, different, Ms. France. Still, it's worth a try to do a pencil test. Would you like me to mail you a good pencil? smile

And here I was thinking how Escher this feels without no other worries and you had to come with that pencil test...to fall or not to fall became the question, and I assure you my life was already complicated... gringrin
(Deep un my heart I always knew that pencils were meant to other things rather than writing)
vz-nostalgia: Oh my. I had such a good laugh reading this.
Don't tell me you too didn't know about the pencil test, Ms. Reis. Based on what then you made this crucial decision when time came? smile
