This week’s photograph is from 57th street between Fifth and Madison. I was sitting with a friend in the open-to-the-public interior courtyard of a Trump building.

As with many things in New York City, once you stop moving you start noticing. Accompanied by the chirps of birds flying between the indoor, covered trees, sparrows, as it turned out, I looked towards one of the entrances.

Looking east towards Madison Avenue I noticed a visual confusion. The walls and ceiling so shiny that the street view was inverted and reflected inside the courtyard space.

I’m still transfixed!
