Mirroring the Future
Sometimes you walk on grounds that are connected to your future without knowing it.
In 2007 I shot this photo in Chicago. This artwork is called "Cloud Gate" and the reflection of the surrounding skyline fascinated me a lot.
In a few weeks I will be on a 7-day business trip to Chicago. While looking up the location of my meeting in Google Maps I was like "Wait a minute, this is right next to this mirror artwort thing".
I browsed through my photos of 2007 and found out that the skycraper of the Aon Center is mirrored on the surface of Cloud Gate on one of my shots.
I never thought that I would have the chance to actually work inside this tall building three years after 2007.
Looking at my old photo today is like catching a glimpse into my future.
Life is full of surprises, isn't it?
