Skywatch--The Invisible Building

Here we are again at Slavija (SLAH-vee-ya) Circle, not one of Belgrade's more attractive round-abouts, which I'd shown you part of before.

However, I was struck by the building across the square, which seems almost invisible in this light, making the reflection look like buildings standing in its place!

Very cool! I had to look at it for a while to figure it out...then I read what you had written. I should have read your wrds first. ;-)

A stunning capture! I appreciate seeing your city.

Good eye, Bibi! Strange sight...like something is there...but what? A big mirror full of squares?

Great shot!

Real cool photo. The reflecting building IS almost transparent with the gray/cloud background. We have a building in Chicago which I think would give a similar illusion (actually, it would make it look like part of the building was suspended in mid-air) in the right light -- I just haven't caught it in the right light yet.

Funny, before I read your comment I had a feeling that was ugly old Slavija Circle! I haven't seen it in a long time and I'm positive that mirrored building was not there last time I was. My grandma used to live just off that circle. Thank you for the memory!

Great capture! It looks as if I'm watching a pixelated t.v. screen :) Have a great weekend...

Normally I am not much for city scenes, but this one is a delight!

Cool optical illusion!

Marie Reed said...

ooooh! You're right ! What a neat effect! Any luck with Picasa 3:)

That is so cool! If that high rise weren't reflected so prominently we might just think there was a wire fence in our view of the skyline. . .for a second or two :-). Have I told you lately that I just LOVE your shots. They are so good, and you have such an eye for detail and composition. You rock in my image world!

Wow, this pic looks very original. Interesting contrasts of different buildings (it reminds me of my neighborhood).

Stunning catch, my friend! I agree with the invisible nature of that building. What a great shot!

Wonderful photo. Who is the bust of? (Sorry if you've already posted that before.)
