Strange light from above

About this photo: We're slowly winding down Thematic Photographic's celebration of the world of geometry. I probably have a shape or two left in me before posting the new theme tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7 p.m. ET. If you do, too, click here to kickstart the festivities.
There's something to be said for staring up when everyone else is looking ahead. You get the occasional - or not-so-occasional - stare and even the odd scowl, especially when you raise your camera and start shooting.

I understand the stares, but the scowls confuse me. I guess sheep don't want anyone else deviating from the herd.

Your turn: Do you conform or not? Why/why not?

HEY!!!!!!!! I took a picture almost IDENTICAL to this over the weekend!! The people that I were with were entertained when I stopped right in the center of the Hilton's lobby and pointed the camera straight up :) I am all about an interesting shot...no matter where you have to stand to get it :)

Hi, can you share the exact date and time of these photo? Do you have more? I'm a research scientist and found this match with the conclusions of my research results.
