Reflective view from a Moscow hotel room

Reflections are very versatile: a welcome subject for the photographer, a means for introspection,  a mirror view of ourselves and many more. Just like the passing shadows, changing light or a blanket of snow, reflections have the power to transform the ordinary into something unexpected. In a photograph, reflections can add strong symmetry or extract the essential colors and contrasts from a scene.
It was a hot night after a long flight and much work. The room was airless but luckily and unexpectedly it was possible to open the window, which allowed me to take the photograph below and to sleep in airy air.

Nightly view from a hotel room in Moscow. I really like the almost perfect symmetry of the photograph and the combination with the unusual blue lighting.
