ReflectPosted: September 17, 2010
Today’s Photo Friday challenge is Reflect. I’m not officially entering the challenge but I do think it makes good fodder for a blog post.
There are so many different ways to capture reflections. I could probably fill a month’s worth of blog posts with photos of reflections. It would make a good theme for NaBloPoMo (if they haven’t already done it).
Water is one of my favorite sources for photographing reflections. It helps to have a nice, calm day when the water is like glass, but I’ve captured some interesting, abstract-like reflections on windy days when the water is rippling.
You don’t need a big body of water such as a pond, lake, or river, either. The puddle from an overnight rain provided reflections in Red Rock Canyon (the top photo in this series).
I have a large collection of reflections on water, windows, mirrors, and a variety of shiny surfaces (including just-washed cars). I may make this a regular feature here at Life in the Bogs. It would be worth exploring just for fun and to see what comes up.
Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.
