This theme was an easy enough one for me. I love walking through the city taking photos of city life reflected in the glass skyscrapers and store windows. The photo above was taken on Avenida Paulista, which is the main business area for banks and many large corporations. It is not, however the CBD. I remember when we first saw this building, we stared for a while. The building is ancient and rather worn, but the painting on the side was so realistic.
Of note is that the scene painted on the building is a scene of the self-same road a good century ago. The road was home to the mansions of the wealthy. One of those mansions is still there. It is now an art museum and sits at the foot of the building in the photograph below. It is one of my favourite spots on this avenue, as it has the most wonderful rose garden.
As if the building and its ‘reflection’ weren’t enough, it stood in such contrast to the rest of the buildings in the road….
