Travelers Tower

There are many modern glass-walled office buildings in Hartford's downtown, as well as many older buildings with traditional lines.  I enjoy it when the two collide.  Today's image is of the Travelers Tower bounced off a modern building.


It is Friday, so James' blog Weekend Reflections is again showing photos with reflections.  Take a look.

I wonder how the modern architect would feel if someone told him or her that the best part of his or her design is that it enables a reflected view of the work of another architect.

Good question Dave. And a cool reflection it is.

I can't think of a more pleasing collision, Jack. Well done.

Not the house, but the BUILDING that Jack built? I wonder.

My very favourite kind of reflection Jack, love the way it goes off into a little peak at the very top.

I like your shot : it just looks like you took the picture on a very hot day, and the heat in the air make every thing blury...

Perhaps that's the only thing I like about modern glass towers, it's reflections. Glad you catch the reflection of the beautiful architecture on its the boring glass surface.

Randy said...

Awesome reflection.

Cathy Hudspeth said...

This is just a fabulous shot, Jack! You have a great eye!

I love the old architecture, and I did something similar with my blog today.

Interesting reflection of the old in the new...
