A little break from the harbors series – last Saturday (2010-07-24) was the third World Wide Photo Walk, the first for me to take part. Exciting to know there were 1111 walks all over the world with a whopping 31960 registered walkers, all enjoying photography and each others’ company on the same day! I chose to take part in Almere because I’d never been there before: Jantheo was the ‘leader’ and had devised a route with the theme ‘color’. So much fun to see that even before we had reached our target area, people were shooting off in all directions, finding color and doing their own ‘thing’: the modern architecture could wait, there was water, and plants, and wall paintings, and – well – photographers! :)
A small series of shots with one building reflecting another (or more than one!).
Whereas the rather sober polka-dot window is found on an ‘outside’ wall of this building, this same building (which houses a tax office) has two facades facing a courtyard (with one narrow side open to the street) where the entrances are, that are a riot of color through the use of wall panels that are diffracting light and highly reflective window panes. The sunlight bounces around in this space causing special light effects; each of the two wings is reflected in the other. You can actually see a cloud reflected in a window reflected in another window…
