In the window reflection of the shopping mall in Swakopmund.
Swakopmund is a city on the coast of northwestern Namibia. It is a beach resort and an example of German colonial architecture. It was founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South-West Africa.

Hello Zbigniew - I would never have thought of taking this shot and it just goes to show how someone unfamiliar with a place sees things with 'new' eyes! What is of particular interest is the way you have Woermann and Brock supermarket (a business that is currently celebrating 115 years of trade) and the Woermann Haus (the tower behind the shop) both featured together in one shot. Both the business and the tower have the same roots in early Namibian/German colonial history.

TFS this and for opening my eyes to creative possibilities. Warm regards Rosemary

great to see new photos from you.
When i was looking at the new post page and viewed this one, I had no idea that it was a glass reflection, thats how clear it is.
I can see why Rosemary commented on it as well as she's from Namibia :)
interesting to see the architecture and some of the city views.
