False Reflections

I decided to stroll part of the way back from the post office on Sunday and ended up on a block that I don’t think I’d ever walked before. Or, if I had, I hadn’t paid attention.

The glass building in front of me reflected back the Neoclassical dome of a building I’d just passed.

Except I hadn’t.

The building behind me was mid-century cinderblock.

With a mural about three floors up.

Taking advantage of the single story building in between the two, someone had chosen (commissioned?) to paint a mural of the corner a domed building similar to the Capitol. To take advantage of negative space to project a positive image.

I can’t find any information on the mural, but I am grateful to its artist.
