I love the song “Reflections of My Life” by Marmalade. It is definitely a must-have for any decent itunes collection. So what does this have to do with the city? Nothing, except that I’ve noticed some very cool reflections in our buildings, lately. I’ll save my favorite and start with the reflection of First Bank in one of the Butcher Buildings. I happened upon it as I walked up Clinch across the viaduct between State Street and Gay Street just a bit before noon early in July. Click it to enlarge it and get a closer look.
The other reflection is pretty amazing to see in person, but I’m not sure the pictures really capture it. It is a reflection of the Medical Arts Building as you walk up Locust toward Main just after 8:00 AM. The building in which it is reflected is the Bank of America building, which has a curved surface, which I assume accounts for the stunning deconstruction of the reflection. I hope you enjoy it. I can’t decide which picture is best, so I’m posting them all. Are there other reflections you’ve noticed? Let me know and I’ll try to get a picture to post.
