“I was on the way to a friend’s house, which happens to be adjacent to this [building under] renovation,” writes Your Shot contributor Brian Yen. “It was very late at night, and for a second the giant facade, complete with puffy clouds and blue sky, looked quite real.”
Yen says his initial pictures didn’t include any people. “Since it was late at night, the street was quite empty. Then a biker went by, and he gave the scene some sense of scale. But I didn’t have my camera ready for it, so I ended up waiting across the street with the camera ready until someone finally walked past it.”
