Photographer's Note

The Britomart rail station in Auckland has won awards for its design.
One of its more unique design features are the 11 volcanic cone skylights, each weighing in at 28 ton.
Here is a close up of one of them, showing how it helps bring natural light into the underground station. The design includes this polished ball bearing, with an uplight supported underneath allowing maximum light to be reflected off the ball.
