Through a Glass, Colorfully

"I love walking around my beloved New York City armed with my camera, looking for different and interesting subjects to photograph," says Your Shot member Ivan Lesica. "On this day, I was walking over the Williamsburg Bridge that connects Brooklyn with Manhattan. Halfway over the bridge I noticed a handmade wooden box painted in bright yellow, with openings in the front and back. I looked through it and noticed that the inside walls were covered with pieces of white, orange, and blue glass." Lesica noticed the reflection of the Empire State Building in some of the pieces and took the picture through the opening in the box. "It's my favorite shot of New York City to date."
