Published July 9, 2013 -- My attention was immediately drawn to the reflections on the water of False Creek, Vancouver, Canada. It was a warm clear evening and the gentle puffs of wind only slightly disturbed the mirror like reflection on the water. As I looked up at the thousands of windows, which are really the eyes of a building, I wondered what people were doing nestled in their homes; were they reading or cooking or curled up on the sofa watching TV? Were they choosing courses for university, soothing a crying baby or resetting a password? How many were happy? Was anyone crying? Who was in pain? Individually expressed, this would be a mess across the board of human possibilities. But in this one image, this one frame, all that humanity comes together in a beautiful fine art photograph.
