Finding the right spot for the camera was probably the hardest part of this image. It was only because of the brilliant job done by many people that just take pictures while they walk around or because they want to promote themselves on the web or whatever other reason and of course because of google maps that I was able to explore the surrounding streets. I found a small jewlery store accross the street that had a tiny virtual tour and just when I was about to exit the store, I ran into an interesting image. I decided to use this image as my starting point, but as this image was not intended to recreate reality as is but to compose upon an idea, the image started to change rapidly as I progressed. Layering and framing through reflections, showing architecture trhough a mirror was my sole goal. Post production was merely toning the image to look what I wanted.
