Impossible Things

May 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

In Alice Through The Looking Glass, the White Queen claimed to do as many as six impossible things before breakfast. As a digital photographer, that seems like a low bar, however there are some images which seem impossible, or manipulated, but which are really just a straightforward shot, just as you would see it in life. I love to find images like that -- and this is one of them.

Inside out

The secret here is the curved glass of a tall window where two buildings join at the end of a deep urban canyon. This makes it appear that the viewer in looking in to an outside space, while reflections of florescent lights dance and twist, and the reflection of a TV screen hangs in space.

The location clearly makes the window difficult to clean, and a patina of dirt spots adds to the surreal effect, while the layout of the buildings and the position of the camera allows the viewer to glimpse a thin sliver of both worlds, right and left.

Keep an eye out for shots like this. You'd be surprised what you'll find once you start looking.

However, "six before breakfast" should be left to the professionals!
