Default Reflections On an Old Building

Taken on an early morning walk, a number of years ago. I went back later on to try to bracket the scene, with the idea that I could not blow out the sky, but it never worked - the reflection is in a fountain that for some reason was turned off the day I took the picture and its always been on any other time I've been by. So this is likely to be the only picture of its kind, unless the fountain's pump breaks or something.

Perfect example of a mirror surface.
Proverbial calm before the storm.

Thanks! While the blown-out sky shows up clearly on this version of the picture and the transition isn't that smooth, the original is really nice when printed.

Shooting old buildings is one of my favorite subject to shoot.

I agree, shooting old buildings is fun. Too bad there aren't more old buildings in SoCal (I'm lucky to have as many as I do within a short walk of my office). Architecture interests me, though I know virtually nothing about it.
