Photographing reflections of buildings on buildings was one of my first projects and one I am constantly drawn to photographing. It started with my usual lunch time jaunt out and about Grand Central Station. I kept looking up and seeing these large abstract paintings that were created by the reflections of neighboring buildings upon the large panes of glass of the skyscrapers. Some of the reflections are sharp and clear while others appear as abstract realism. To render the brightest colors and sharpest details I found that high noon on a bright sunny day brings these glass canvases alive. So the next time your in a large city with beautiful skyscrapers, look for the paintings that are reflected upon them.

This first group is more of the abstract realism genre.
