Stone and Glass

This is a building in Adelaide, 69 Currie St., a modern business edifice. I was waiting for a bus one Sunday morning in April 2009 and the reflections and symmetry struck me as very art-neuveau (sp?). Note the classical column reflected at lower right, part of a building a hundred years older than this one. I framed and shot several times but without a tripod it was impossible to align the camera with the symmetry of the subject, so this was a case of custom rotation in software later. I used a half-degree rotation to match the alignment of the verticals to the axis of the image, then cropped inside the resulting background wedges. From that point the image was scaled and enhanced as per normal for publication. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. Image by Mike.
