A few weeks back, I got stuck in traffic in front of the Art Gallery of Ontario. The AGO is on a very busy street in Toronto and I picked the middle of the day, on a Saturday to visit the area. It turned out, though, that it gave me an inspiration. At one point, after about 5 minutes of not moving, I looked up at the glass facade and saw the busy streetscape reflected back. A police car drove by, lights flashing, and I thought, what an amazing photo that would make. 

Today, I went back down to that street to test out my idea and see how this busy Saturday would reflect a different point of view. I took about 100 shots and enjoyed playing with the traffic flow especially. Interestingly, though, it was the shots of the facing residences that proved to be my favourites when all was said and done.

  1. Reflections are so much – be glass, water, or even metal – it’s all good.

      Yes, I am planning to focus on reflections whenever I can. I had not really considered them previously.


  2. Great idea! The reflections look great… too bad you couldn’t get the police car though!

      Oh I know! I did get a police car, but not with its lights flashing sadly. Perhaps another time….
