It's taken from within the National Gallery of Victoria. At the entrance there's a huge pane of glass that water runs down. The idea is, as you guys pointed out, to mirror some impressionism and also make it a playful space.
Everyone that goes there as a kid plays for hours with the patterns of the water running down the glass, so if you sit inside and look out, you can see it every day.
This image shows iwhat I'm describing a lot better:
So, the image was taken on the left - hence why there's no green or blue in the background - no effect was added, I just shot it @ 2.0/2.8 and focused on the finger, so the rest of the image is slightly out of focus and accentuates the effect of the water.
I just waited for something cool! Usually kids just run and touch and people play around, but I liked this shot because it's a bit more sinister and weird.
Here's another shot I took at the same place:
As you know I take a lot of photos.

So I went to Italy, took a 35mm camera and took a lot of shots. I also had my digital camera and that was fun too.
I made a series - have a look: http://mwd.photography/Give-me-something-to-read-and-a-window-seat
Thanks. I'd tried using a Hoya R72 on an unconverted camera and the results were pretty muddy. Converted bodies are definitely the way to go, and with micro four thirds you don't get the focus problems you can get with modified DSLRs.
Nice website btw - I love the pavement artist shot.
