Urban Reflections #3

This is the most bizarre refection scene I have come across so far. Some of you may have received an email with a power point presentation purporting to be a village in Afghanistan where all the dwellings are in caves or underground. This picture reminds me very much of some of the images in that power point presentation. This was taken in Chinatown and shows the Beautiful Pagoda style roof of the Cultural Centre, distorted but still beautiful. I love the ghost-like building on the right and the peculiar white swirling patterns. I deliberately left some tree branches on the right bottom corner. These are outside the building and are quite normal in appearance. I think that the overall appearance is so weird, that these branches help to ground and stabilize us in our vision as we contemplate the scene.
