Photographer's Note

Two buildings, each representing opposite ends of the spectrum. The reflection you see is of the Marine Building, an art deco office building from the 1920's. It is beautifully decorated, with lots of carvings and design features, all with a "marine" theme (seahorses, fish, sailing ships, etc.). They say it was the tallest building in the British Empire when it was built, although I have no way to prove or disprove that.
The "new" building is a glass tower across the street. It is fairly typical of modern buildings, however, the builders did two things that were different. The first is that the building has a gold colour glass and brick trim, which matches the Marine Building's colour very well. The other thing they did was they built the tower at an angle (not parallel or square to the street). Because of this angle, you get a perfect reflection of the Marine Building from all the way up the street. Although the two buildings are from completely different eras, they seem to go together quite well.
