Peppermill Reflections:

»     digital photographs of the Tuscany Tower—Peppermill Hotel Casino, Reno, Nevada.

  «   In 2006 the Peppermill Hotel Casino added a second hotel tower, the Tuscany Tower—nineteen stories. The facade is largely glass. The original building is Y-shaped with the open end facing the Tuscany Tower which is slightly concave. Soon after it was completed I noticed one afternoon while laying poolside that the old tower was reflecting on the glass of the new tower. As the sun moved the reflection changed and was often slightly distorted which created interesting abstract patterns. On most subsequent visits I would make a point of checking out the reflection which I found also changes with the seasons or the current weather. Often I wonder if the architects planned this event.
