February 27th, 2012. On Monday I took the camera with me to our “new” offices on Queen Victoria Street, and took it out at lunchtime for a walk around Southwark Bridge. As I took the steps down the side of the bridge I noticed that the building next to me had a very reflective polished granite surface. I started to play with using it to create mirrored images - I took several photos this way, but the one here on the left is my favourite of the lot. This really set the tone for the rest of my walk - looking for interesting reflections in glass windows, metal surfaces, and granite building facades. Just before the end of my walk, as I was waiting for the light to change so I could cross the street, I turned around and noticed the cherub in the photo on the right being reflected in a polished stone engraved with a building’s name. The final image really appeals to me - it’s not a perfect mirror image and I think that’s part of its beauty.
