A strange angle of reflection
This week's contribution to Weekend Reflections poses a strange question - and no I don't know the answer.
I was standing by the side of the NatWest bank on Market Street close to the cash dispenser (a.k.a. ATMS, hole-in-the-wall) and shooting up the street. A woman walked past me just as I was taking the photograph.
What seems strange to me though is that I have captured a reflection of the back of her head but surely that would happen if she was behind me but in fact she is in front of me.
I thought I knew about geometry and angles but now I'm not so sure. Maybe the metal-work around the ATM doesn't reflect in the same way an ordinary mirror does.
