Walking on rainy days we are careful not to get our shoes wet and usually don’t pay much attention to something as ordinary as a puddle, but with a little imagination, water reflections in those puddles are like windows of strange worlds. Through those rippling windows you could glimpse at things from a new perspective and make rainy days sort of fun to wonder around.

In the “Reflections of Vilnius” cycle of works photographer Giedrius Dagys shows a different way of observing well visited iconic buildings and public places of Vilnius.
