Look up!

Today was one of those days when I was very happy that I had a camera at hand.

I stopped at the post office before heading out walking, and as I was leaving the building I looked up to see a curved piece of metal hanging from the ceiling. Curved, bright, reflecting everything in sight. Decoration? Or a handy way to let people see around corners?

It fascinated me enough to send me out to my car to grab my camera. I don't have a fish-eye lens, but the effects of the mirrored curves were quite interesting. I think I'm going to have to return with my camera at least one more time; next time I'm going to bring a longer lens.
