At first glance, this shot looks as if it's some sort of composite, but it's not. While in Quito, Ecuador, last September, ROBERTO OJEDA was walking by a building with mirror-finish windows when he noticed the colorful street across from him. He went up to the third floor of the orange building on that street and composed this shot from the window. The reflection shifts and is slightly uneven because the mirror front of the building is curved, not flat. The only continuous element is the electric wires at the bottom that are in front of the windows.
