When attempting to fill in a bureaucratic blank, a friend serendipitously snapped this cameraphone picture . . .

. . . of what?

To me it looks like picture shows

a car window, with the street buildings reflected in the glass, and a ventilation grill in the dashboard on the other side of the glass.

Could it be

the dashboard of a car? The picture was taken through the windscreen which is why there is a reflection of a building.

Looks to me like it's a

drain of some sort, with the background reflected in it

    $\begingroup$ One of the words in your first answer is right on target. Hint, not: "of" "with" "the" "in" "it" (Whew, knowing what it is i can't help but think it's too obvious, but maybe not after all) $\endgroup$
