San Francisco

Reflection of the TransAmerica Building in the windows of One Maritime Plaza...

...with apologies to my dear friend Erik Reinecke from whom I stole this idea flat outright. (Shameless - but it was right there - glowing in the sunrise)

The way the eye is drawn to the reflection in the windows is wonderful. Stephen, I am taking a break until the New Year, but would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a wonderful Holiday Season. Take care, and see you in 2010.

I'm really drawn in by the use of perspective... and the quirk of having the focus point be a reflection! Nice.
