It might look like something out of a sci-fi comic, but this skyscraper wasn’t really bending over backwards or sideways to do the limbo.

I was on a footpath in the commercial centre of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, when I noticed this towering office block reflected (and distorted) in the rear window of a passing vehicle.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my work in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/250 sec, ISO 200, focal length 38mm.

    Love this! Cool perspective, David!

  • Thank you very much, Helene. I fired off this shot very quickly, so I didn’t even check the name of the building – or what type of car it was.

    Interesting perspective – you make the most mundane objects into a work of art!

  • Thanks, Shulie. I just happened to be looking in the right direction when this vehicle drove past!

    Awesome shot….

  • Thanks very much, Rajeev. Luckily this driver was going very slow because of a traffic light up ahead!

    Great Title and very well spotted.

  • Thanks on both counts, Dave. I’m not sure how on earth I spotted this, because I was going the other way!
