The Beehive - the Executive Wing of the New Zealand Parliament in Wellington - reflected on the trunk and rear window of a car. You may think that the photograph should be turned 90° to the left and I guess this would work just fine. However, I have composed this carcolor just like this, in portrait format, and this is why I cannot look at it in landscape mode. If you want, have a look at the carcolors gallery with many more examples of reflections and distortions on shiny car bodies.
The next episode of my monthly prints, which are New Zealand prints at the moment, is a photograph that I have not shown before. Sometimes, after time and repeated viewing, I start to appreciate a photograph that I may have overlooked earlier. A more intimate composition that was created at the same location has been shown in the blog post about nature details from New Zealand (the second photograph), but at the moment I prefer the version above. Which one do you prefer?
I continue the theme of reflections that complete otherwise plain buildings. Last year, I have created a a few such compositions that I may show in upcoming posts. Today's nearby reflection has been composed just around the corner from where we live. It shows a kind of glass bay that is attached to a nearby office building. More reflections of "completed buildings" are shown in the current reflection gallery.
The Leutschentower is a nearby building that I regularly visit on my photo bike rides. The colorful and patterned facade often creates attractive reflections and distortions on shiny cars. For example, the same building also gave rise to the carcolor composition 32.
This nearby composition goes along with the one from last week. The reflection again completes the composition and creates a new, symmetric whole. In this case, a boring light and shadow pattern is transformed into upward pointing angle brackets. This unspectacular wall is part of the PWC building, which has been featured in many nearby posts already.
