Interesting - on first glance the second one struck me more. I think
at some point I was photographing a reflection of a street in a window
and it occurred to me that I was being very cliche. Since that moment
I have tended to dismiss that kind of shot - totally my problem.

Still, there is something calming about the second image that I like.
