“A city is not gauged by its length and width, but by the broadness of its vision and the height of its dreams.” — Herb Caen
Photography Challenge: Mirror Your Subject
For this project I took a photograph of San Francisco’s Mission (foreground) and Financial districts (background) and inverted it on itself in order to take advantage of the hard edges of the skyline. I wanted to make this photograph into a metaphor for tough urban living by giving the buildings a toothsome character. The city is definitely glamorous and exciting, but it can eat you alive.
