    Is that the symbol of the Brussels World Fair from sometime back in the 60s? Nice symmetrical shot.

    Yes, it is.

    It is nowadays a touristic attraction (museum)

    Really cool shot. I would love to see how it looks during sunset.

    I checked how it is oriented



    So while there is an East-West axis, the main lane (used for this capture) is SE to NW.

    West is to the right of this capture. Taken a capture from West (sun in the back at sunset) might indeed give a nice capture with the park in the background

    One would think that the orientation of the structure would have been considered for sunrise/sunset to get the best photogenic look.

    If you look at the above picture, the structure has two of the "balls" perfectly aligned east/west, however the lane is not .

    Maybe that in the late 50s, when it was built, the surroundings were different.

    Awesome black and white portrait photography, a tower is looking stunning with the black background.
