I took this photo on the walk to Starbucks this morning. I liked the contrast between these two buildings’ actual and reflected windows. Windows upon windows.
Because the idea of taking a picture hadn’t crossed my mind until the minute I looked up and saw this, I had to use my iPod Touch, which was the only “camera” I had with me. Too bad. My photo didn’t turn out nearly as well as it would have with my real camera and a longer lens. I could “see” the photo I wanted in my mind’s eye, but using the iTouch meant standing in the middle of a (not too busy) downtown street in order to approximate the way a better lens could have captured the image from the sidewalk.
When oncoming traffic sent me scurrying to the opposite curb, I unintentionally took the picture below when my thumb brushed across the virtual shutter release by mistake.
Ironically, I like this accidental photograph even more than the picture I took on purpose. There’s something appealing about all those lines and planes at odds with each other. What do you think?
