Bitter Grounds - espresso fueled ramblings

Friday, September 22, 2017

Still going through the mass of photos I took about 2 weeks back. I've discarded nearly half. But found a few that are intriguing. If you stand in the right spot, on Dundas and Yonge (in Toronto), you can see some stunning optical illusions. With the right mix of cloud cover and sun, the reflections off the mirrored buildings can present a dizzying appearance.

It's difficult to tell where the actual corner of the building starts because of the intense optical mind games.  The ladder reflections are from the building on the right. The part that's cool is the section with the red circle. It's from the same building, but a south facing wall, not west. Oh, and that panel is also south facing. Bend your brain around those optics for a second.

The photo would have benefited from a decent lens filter, but the camera I own doesn't allow for them. I've put a new SLR camera on my wish list for next year. But in the meantime, this little Canon does a great job and is fun to use. I'll be posting a few more shots in the next day or two. My work schedule suddenly became far less irrational and I have a bit of time to potter again.
