15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A mirroring skyscraper facade in Midtown Manhattan

The picture is showing a section of a mirroring Midtown Manhattan skyscraper facade, that reflects the surrounding buildings. Due to the design of the facade, the reflections look like little houses. For me this contains an interesting message: a house is just a house, no matter how big or small a building is. Ultimately, even the gigantic skyscrapers in a megacity like the Big Apple are just regular houses for people to spend their lives in.
