Reflecting on Tokyo

I know it looks like it’s badly developed and streaky, but that’s because it’s actually taken through one pane of glass, and is a reflection in the mirrored glass of the Ebisu Garden Place Tower, on the 38th floor.

You’d really have to be paying attention to know that Shinjuku is mirrored, and that the negative isn’t scanned emulsion side down.

What it is about this extra complexity that pleases me isn’t immediately apparent… but when i look it side by side with one taken directly, i like this one, with it’s odd shapes / shadows cast into the sky, somewhat more.

    Ooh that’s what it is! I’ve been looking at it, thinking something wasn’t right but couldn’t put my finger on it.

Wise words...
