Reflections


Today, while I was stopped at a red light in the downtown core of Edmonton, I spotted this reflection of a building on a building and thought it might make a cool photo. I love reflection photos for some reason... practice, practice, practice!

  1. Looks like a needlework. Great image. The quick shot from the car adds pepper to the process, when stopping, parking and other right stuff removes it totally :-)))

  2. I gave this photo what it needed, the boarder with my view on reflections. I think that I now have figured out a part of why I love reflections so much.

    Thank you Irina.

  3. I love reflections too! Unfortunately I never go any where, so it's mostly things in mirrors at my house!!

  6. Thanks all, Pam that's unfortunate that you don't go anywhere. A suggestion for you is to get a prism and hang it in a window, the light which filters through the prism is amazingly wonderful!

    M. I don't think that life is necessarily harsh, it's just not always as it seems. One could look at in the context as it's not as bad as it looks.

    Davine I think that reflections give us a different view of life, maybe that is a part of what draws us to them. Seeing life in a different view and not the same old way.

  7. Thanks for commenting on my blog. You are right that the shallow DOF is what makes the black-capped chickadee photo. I love those big apertures and that lens produces a nice buttery bokeh.

    I enjoy reflection pictures too. Have you ever tried turning a reflection picture upside down? There's a whole Flickr group about upside down reflections. It's fun! Here's an example (second picture in this post)...

  11. Ahhh yes, I might have to borrow some of those wise sayings from "White Powder" for my status on facebook if you don't mind.

    Awesome book, I loved the entire book especially the ending. You are a brilliant man LL.

  12. Sometimes the best moments are captured in a split second (no paralysis through analysis!) - like you did here. Great composition with the lines of the window frames and the traffic light supports. And wonderful reflection as well as very thought-provoking words!
