Layers of windows and reflections at night, illuminated by ship yard security lights
This is a prosaic subject that, to me at least, becomes more mysterious the more I look at it. As I walked down a very familiar alley way — perhaps the most familiar one to typical Mare Island night photographers, and a place I have been in many, many times — I looked at parts of it differently. Perhaps this was because the alley was closed off this time or maybe because one of the huge overhead structures that looms able this area was covered with immense scaffolding. Possibly it was the fact that interior lights in a neighboring building were, for the first time I can remember, still on and shedding light on the alley.
In any case, I went straight to this corner window that I had not really even noticed in the past. I was attracted by they interesting reflected light and the converging lines of the window frame, and then I began to notice the many layers of light and shape in the subject — especially the light coming thought another set of windows around the far corner of the building.
