Photographer's Note

Vancouver is well known for it's glass towers, many of which have bright reflective surfaces. This one is almost like a mirror, so it reflects incredibly well. The city planners have banned dark glass from office buildings, thinking that it makes the city look too gloomy (or like 'Darth Vader'). In one case, the builder started using a colour of glass that was darker than the city wanted, so they made him switch to a lighter colour. Since it was too expensive to remove the dark glass they had already installed, the building now has two colours, dark on the bottom and light on the top - very strange!
