I call them glass canvasses. They are like a dynamic blank screen that projects the world outside depending on the time of day. I have a couple right by my place of work in New York City along the periphery of Bryant Park, and I have a few random shots that I took of a side mirror while in a car or of a reflection against a moving bus. However, when I read the prompt that was posted last Friday just this Monday morning, I knew right away which photo I would post for this photo challenge .
Whenever I am in Manila, I take a lot of random photos while moving from place to place in a vehicle. Street smarts in Manila dictate that shipping out your phone on a busy street would be a neon sign blinking “snatch me”, so I grab what shots I can in the safety of a car. Sometimes I do get brave and do it while waiting on the sidewalk, but this was a shorter visit.
This is the new Zuellig Building along Paseo De Roxas Avenue in Makati City, situated right where the old Mandarin Oriental Hotel used to be. (Photo taken with my IPhone6, August 22, 2016). My photo does not do it justice, but it encapsulates memories of this particular trip home in its reflection of clear blue skies during a trip that saw a lot of rainfall and cloudy days. That’s home.
