I’ve long been fascinated by reflections. I’m like a child seeing itself in a mirror for the first time and trying to make sense of what I see – familiar yet strange simultaneously.
I took this image from my 19th floor window at the Grand Rapids JW Marriott shortly after sunrise. On the left is the JW Marriott and on the right is 144 Campau Circle NW, reflected in the windows of the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.
That nearly all of the architectural lines of the two building being reflected are curved suggests that the glass in the Amway Grand is bowed. I’ve no idea if this is just the nature of the glass, due to high winds, due to the air conditioning pressure or some combination of all, but it does make for some really interesting patterns.
