From this angle... it's the same; but different.

I always like to study the world from unpopular angles. I love to take a fly-on-the-wall perspective where ever I can find it. This photo was taken at the base of Clifton Hill, Niagara Falls. The distressed mirror hangs perched on an old entrance gate to the old rail-car that lead to the maid of the mist. The mirror serves no purpose but to be ignored by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.
The mirror allows us to see the familiar sights of the tourist district from a different angle. Within this broken piece of history, lays the present in a slightly different form. Discarded and waste, but still a piece in the puzzle that is the illusion that is Niagara Fall's tourist district. I like how this archaic piece of history is subtly and innocuously insignificant, and yet stands their reflecting ourselves back at us.
