This shot was taken in the same window as my entry for the day before yesterday, and while I'm mostly happy with it I do think it could have been a little clearer. One of the things I like most about shooting in reflective surfaces is that it gives you the opportunity to play around with merging two alternative realities – the scene within the shop and the outside world – but the light does have to be right. In this case I suspect that had I been there 30 minutes earlier the glare from the window would have been a little easier to control (i.e. the sun would have been at a different angle).
