Sidewalk illumination

Not everything you see on the sidewalk is flesh and bone.

Alien Glow on Union Street

These reflections of the morning sun appear for a few days each spring on Union Street in Traverse City. They’re created by very old glass in windows on the west side of the street. The uneven old glass shapes the reflection into these figures on the east side of the street. As the sun rises, the shapes very slowly move down onto the sidewalk, then fade away.
