Lens-Artists Challenge # 86: Change Your Perspective, Part 2

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever
[Photos this week are hosted right here on WordPress.  Somewhere… ]

Consider, if you will, “You are about to enter another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind.” (One of the opening narrations of the American tv show Twilight Zone, originally broadcast 1959-1965.)

Suppose… just suppose… you lived in an alternate universe where you had to view everything in a mirror, lest gazing directly at a thing might, like biblical Lot’s wife gazing back at Sodom, turn you to a pillar of salt.

Or perhaps… just perhaps… if you look closely at building reflections you can see a parallel or shadow universe, not unlike that portrayed by China Mieville in his excellent sci-fi murder mystery The City & the City.

Enjoy. My work here is done.

P.S. This skyscraper is the John Hancock Tower in Boston, Massachusetts.

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.
