Hartford Steam Boiler Building



I have shown reflections from this building before, up close.  Here it is again, from a distance.  

And, here are more photos with reflections on James' blog, Weekend Reflections.

The larttice work of the reflections are quite intricate.

Halcyon said...

I love the optical illusion created. Cool building!

I usually don't like architecture that is this modern, but the illusion is mesmerizing.

Sharon said...

The reflections on this building are just amazing. I wonder if the architects had that in mind when they designed the building. It is certainly eye catching.

Sylvia K said...

I agree with Halcyon, I love the optical illusion! Terrific capture/reflection for the day, Jack!! Hope you have a fun weekend -- you do still know how to have weekend fun?? Right???

RedPat said...

That's a fabulous effect, Jack!

What a strange piece of architecture ! The reflection mess with our brain : it is hard to tell the difference between the concrete and the glass... It reminds me of the work of MC Escher : good choice on the Sepia ; it looks even more like a drawing like that.

Very cool. I like how it changes when I shift my eyes a little.

I love shots like this, Jack.

VP said...

I really do love this building!

James said...

I love it! It's like an optical illusion.

Looked at the bigger version - one can't see inside the windows, so they must be coated? Anyways, a friendlier version of a skyscraper because of its color:)

William Kendall said...

Very cool!

There's one in Leeds a bit like this. I really like the effect. Looks kind of ghostly.

I don't get it. I haven't had a single drop of wine at dinner and I'm seeing double?

Lots of angles and neat reflections ~ Enjoy ^_^

Randy said...

I love the pattern it created.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Like an Escher print, what's up, down, in, and out? A puzzle for sure. Happy Spring.

Terrific photo Jack. I don't think my Leggos set would be able to do that.

Karl Demetz said...

This is not real, this is an optical illusion ;-)

Cool photo, Jack!

An otherwise dull building gets a complete new dimension with these reflections. Like it.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

So good Jack, it's difficult to tell what is reflection and what is real...

Virginia said...

It's like an Escher ! I can't make out what's what, but that's not uncommon for me.

Goodness, I feel like I'm looking at a mirage or a ghost. Fantastic effect.

Ali Crehan said...

Really interesting photograph, Jack!

Stefan Jansson said...

Love the illusion it gives the onlooker.

William Kendall said...

Stunning, Jack!
