I've used a similar shot in the PAW side challenge, but I'm hoping this, being a bit different and black and white won't be too much the same.
The photo was taken at my son's wrecking yard/panel beating shop. The reflecting structure is a stack of perspex, metal and mesh panels which will be a spray booth again when reassembled. (Needless to say, more grungy than clean.) The reflected building is a small once-upon-a-time-house-now-storage-unit in the front corner of his yard.

Very interesting - abstraction framed. Reminds me of wood grain or a zebra - wonderful. Congratulations on the Posthumous hanging.

I keep coming back to this. Trying to figure out the reflected subject, looks like it's Guernica.

There is some really cool warping in this glass. Makes the reflection dynamic.

Brilliantly seen and executed. Naturally found Cubism. 8
