Embrace your surroundings young man!
Now that I’m spending almost all of my days in the downtown urban areas of Phoenix, I’m trying to evolve my vision a bit to be aware of things I may not normally look at. That process was certainly helped yesterday morning when we had a brief downpour around 5am, which left some amazingly clear puddles of water everywhere. I’m not sure if it just doesn’t rain all that much in the mornings here, or if you do get rain, it’s too cloudy for the pools of water to be that great looking…who knows. All I do know is that it rained, the skies cleared and the reflectivity of all these puddles were fantastic.
This was taken in the parking garage at my place of full-time employment. The focus was set on the building itself, hence the foreground cement is less than crisp up front. Took a few tries to get it lined up just right to have the other building appearing like a singular monolith out of the water.
Now, I apologize up front to people who have no idea what the title means. I love to watch a little show called Fringe, which is the first sci-fi series to come along that feels anything like the old X-Files (which will hold a special place in my heart forever). Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen Fringe yet and plan to…this may give away a little bit about the show, but to keep it simple…let’s just say there may be other worlds out there that mirror our own. If you do watch the show, I will assume you get the title *grin*
Wish I could have taken another 30 minutes to roam the puddles…but work beckoned. Was glad to get a few brackets fired off though…may post a few more images from this morning down the road.
