A walk through unfamiliar streets in London is guaranteed to result in something new to capture. Those of you who regularly visit or follow this blog will know that I take a keen interest in reflections, especially in urban environments. Look at a building and you will see not just the building before your eyes, but little warped snapshots of what is behind you.
Today’s image is a classic example of that phenomenon. I spotted this repetitive geometric reflection as I walked up a street in Bloomsbury and searched for the best point from which to capture it. As I progressed up the street, looking for a form of symmetry, I suddenly noticed I was picking up something different – a flag’s reflection: and not just any flag – our Flag. And from one spot, that flag fell in the right hand lowest window pane. And, as an added bonus, that window was in a contrasting part of the building.
This has similarities with the concept behind ‘Odd one out’ posted earlier this year.
