@benjamin: Thanks, Benjamin! Wow, I never thought of it as looking like a mirror. i suppose in a way, it does.
Thought it was a mirror too. Nice colour contrast. Someone needs to have a word with the guy who did the paintwork...

@Ardeshir Tayebi: Hey, thanks for the invite, Ardeshir! Don't worry; I won't show up on your doorstep any time soon. Someday, maybe, if I can.

@Craiger: Thanks, Craiger!
I like the colors and the contrast here. The window looks slightly surreal, which make it interesting.

@Lucca's café: Thank you, Lucca's cafe! What makes it look surreal?
reminds me of Drymon's magic doorway to other times and places. the yellow light surrounded by all that grey is kind of surreal.
7 Jan 2007 11:22am
@Stu: Thanks, Stu! Ah, Doraemon's dokodemo door. And thanks for answering my question to Lucca's cafe. The light is yellow because of the unbalaced light temperatures between indoors and out.

@Craig Persel: (-: Thanks, Craig!
very cool. one of my favorites.

@Zach Siebert: Thanks, Zach!
Creepy lighting inside.
7 Jan 2007 4:13pm
@Angry Buddha: Perhaps, but I think that like all second rate experiences, once inside, you get used to it.
Great shot. If it were any darker outside, it would give me the creeps.
7 Jan 2007 4:57pm
@Dileep: Whew, glad I didn't make it any darker then. Thanks, Dileep!
What an intriguing contrasted shot... It gives a feeling of hesitation on what is really seeing. Interesting!

@Still: I see, windows within a window within a window. Thanks, Still. Marvellous work (and discussion) on your site today.
Umm...she puts on her clothes and then goes do her laundry - yet another interesting shot! What's next, Damon? :)

@Lyndsey Le: Umm... she...Ok, I'm reaching here... Sorry; this series is too absurd for a plotline. Thanks, Lyndsey (you can finish the story tomorrow)!
Looking forward to the next installation, if they keep getting better like this, we're all in for a fine treat!

@Adiemus: Gee, was the first one that bad? No really, I think you're setting yourself up for disappointment. This is like one of the those absurdist jokes that ends without a punchline (No soap, radio!).
Oooo, I love this. It encapsulates the laudromat experience so well. Although so far I haven't seen any disrobing maidens...only hairy pot farmers when I camped up in Mendocino many years ago.
7 Jan 2007 6:58pm
@Sylvia: Thanks, Sylvia! The disrobing maiden in the laundromat may never actually happen, but is nevertheless a popular theme in television commercials and elsewhere. So did the hairy pot farmers disrobe?
the more i look at this one, the more i like it. the wall and the world inside seem so incongruous, another dimension. great stuff!
7 Jan 2007 11:22pm
@jc: Thanks, John!
8 Jan 2007 2:02am
@Laurie: Thank you, Laurie!
Superb again (2 of 3)!
8 Jan 2007 4:21am
cool shot again Damon-san :)

@H.O: Thank you, Hiro-さん
"So did the hairy pot farmers disrobe?"
He was sitting on the seat, with a towel wrapped round his waist waiting for his one and only pair of overalls to dry....those were the days....half nekkid pot farmers and laundromats. Now all I got is fashion models and Armani suits driving Monica Bellucci around in sports cars.
Metaphorically speaking of course....
8 Jan 2007 5:11pm
@Sylvia: Quite a picture you paint... However, if you happen to see Monica Bellucci disrobing in a Milano Laundromat, don't be shy with that camera. Metaphorically speaking.
bloody brilliant. absolutely bloody brilliant. It's as if this place exists to be photographed. How could you not? That lighting against the grey exterior of the building, the otherworldly nature of the interior...its all rather mesmerising. I keep scrolling up mid comment to have another look. I'd love this in full screen hi-res glory ;) hint hint.

@Duncan Galbraith: Thank you Duncan. Kind words! There was a series of photos I ran a while back that all were taken on the same rainy day. This photo was taken that day as well, shortly before the ginko leaves if I recall correctly, and you know, many of them were taken because the subway was shut down for awhile and so I walked a couple of stops to a different line snapping along the way. I'll try to get on the hi-res link real soon, hopefully tomorrow.
nice one, good eye ... the light is powerful
