I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

On the Avenue I'm taking you to, 42nd Street

Maybe I like reflections because they abstract themselves. This is a new building going up on 42nd Street, so the glass panes are still clean and don't add more noise to my photos.  Zoomed in like this, it's all blue and brown waves, reflections of nothing much.

But shrink it down and suddenly you can make out the windows and balconies of Manhattan Plaza across the street, see the brown bricks and white panels. And where the blue comes from -- this building, reflected back at itself, maybe -- remains a mystery.
