Title • layered windows

Just for once I really don’t mind if everyone turns round and tells me they hate this as I’m really pleased with the way it turned out. Normally there are at least one or two things that I don’t like about the majority of the stuff I put up, but this one I’m quite happy with. It would definitely benefit from being posted at a higher resolution – as it’s quite a complex image – but I think it turned out reasonably ok.

I was going to post this image along with this one, one in colour, and the other in black and white. But the colour versions didn’t work out and they turned out to be much too similar to put up as separate entries.

I think that what I most like about this shot is the complexity generated by shooting through two reflective surfaces. This shop was on a corner, so in addition to the reflections on the front window, and the ways in which these interact with the internal details, there’s also the rear window light source and a further set of reflections.
