On a winter afternoon a few months ago (yes, we’re in mid-summer now) I was shooting a series of images of one of our tall ships, the historic Polly Woodside as the 19th century vessel stood in dry dock.
About halfway through the shots, I noticed her masts reflected in the glass facade of a nearby office building, against the skyscrapers and the scudding clouds ….
The other interesting aspect is that we can actually discern three rows of interior ceiling lights inside the building. They reminded me of the tracer bullets used in World War II.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/180 sec, ISO 200, focal length 26mm.
