Ghost town

Got down town just in time to catch the nice low strays of afternoon sunlight bursting through the city. As usual, I look for ways to handle the strong sun light. In this image, I had direct sun light into the escalator and indirect light via the reflective surface. I hope it is not confusing…

H C-B:s birthday
