Reflected High Rise


Fractured and inverted, I captured the reflection of this high rise in the polished granite of a planter box on 4th Ave.

When I first posted this I didn't know the building's name. Justin (who works in the area) informed me it is the Washington Mutual tower, and kindly posted a link to more info. Unfortunately, when I tried to edit the post to reflect that and thank him, Blogger wiped out my entire original post. I don't know if the kind comments including Justin's were also lost, but I thank you for them (MC Escher, eh? Blush.). I also had links to Sydney Daily Photo and Newcastle Upon Tyne Daily Photo, who feature recent reflected building photos. For time's sake, please give yourself a treat by clicking on their links below to the right in the Daily City Photo Blogs list.

Cool photo. The building is right across the street from where I work. It's the Washington Mutual Tower building. It was the former home to the bank's corporate offices before they relocated most of their corporate operations in Seattle to a new facility called WaMu Center. It's not owned by the bank, just named for it. You can read a little about it here.

What makes it really outstanding for me is that it's a double reflection, such as I can't ever remember shooting - & by association, seeing! Escher would love it, I reckon!

Well! Talking about composition, this is quite wonderful and a treat! The way you took this photo is also tricking us :) We are wondering which part is reflecting? It's really cool.
