Default Glass - Through a Window

This is an archive shot, I took it in 2008. When I first saw the decal on the window it was lunch, and you could barely see it because the window glass is so highly tinted. So I made a point of walking past in the early morning, before the sun had a chance to get up, so that the interior lights were brighter than the outside, and the decal would be more visible.

Your effort paid off nicely. Now, if the Bruins could learn to play basketball again...

I am trying to understand what I am seeing here. Is the tan colored building a reflection. Very nice shot, regardless.

The only reflection is the wavy waffle-like front of the building behind me, its most noticeable on the upper left corner. The "Athletics" sign is outside the window. The "First to 100" is a decal on the window, and you can see through it. The tan walls and the blue and yellow banners/sports figures are inside the building, behind the decal. Even in good light the interior of the building is visible through the windows (I should shoot it at noon and compare, it would be interesting).

Really nice shot, mtngal, well worth getting there early! I like the colors, nicely coordinated in blue and gold (well, duh).

Walter, I do wish that they would play basketball like they did under John Wooden. I explored the Hall of Fame a bitnmoer on Friday when I took the trophy pictures, and either they have changed things around or else I hadn't seen it all before. In one part they have an exhibit of Wooden's study. It was interesting to see, but rather sad in a way. Granted Wooden was a very unique man at a unique time in the history of the University, but it seemed a bit sad, the idea of faded past glory. Maybe next year...
