Great photo. The Steam Boiler Inspection and insurance Company must be insuring a lot more than steam boilers, or they would not need nor could afford a building like that. How many steam boilers could there be these days?

Jacob said...

Nicely done. Very artistic. You mean there is still a Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company? Tres interessant!

That is an amazing reflection shot Jack, the criss cross pattern makes it hard to see which is the reflection and which is the solid building! Excellent shot.

JM said...

Beautiful shot. The symmetry of the window lines are eye catching. Nice capture.

BTW, I forgot Claremont was the hometown of Pudge Fisk. Thanks for the reminder.

Well, I can tell that V and I are quite close... Escher was the first thought in my mind as well! Great reflection and blending of surfaces.

Terrific reflection, Jack ! It looks like an optique illusion, and make me think at patterns MC Eisher created...

Beautifully abstract!

There is so much that can be said about this shot...I read all the comments and love the reactions of many of the viewers. You produced this reflection in a masterful way. The lines, angles, patterns, color are terrific. Reminds me a bit of a herringbone pattern, too.

Regina K said...

This is an awesome reflection, I can't tell the real building. Will enlarge and figure it out. Such a puzzle, love it.
