You Capture - Reflections

Thursday, March 26

This week's photography challenge was, well - a challenge. I saw a lot of reflections, but none that really looked great. So I left out all the silly self portraits, reflections found in framed art, and car windows and review mirrors. Also all the ones I made my youngest daughter pose for. I'm sensing a part 2 post for the regular readers. I was going to use this for a shadow pic, but then decided since the sand was wet, it was really a reflection, right? I wish I knew this family so I could send them a copy.

I got this one on a school field trip to some ponds last week.

It seems like all the reflections I saw were bare branches and cloudy skies. I guess we can't all live near pretty pools next to awesome architecture. Here is the Alhambra Castle in Granada, Spain. We were in walking distance to this for a few months.
A cistern in Seville, Spain.
And a couple old pics from a modern art exhibit at the Pompidou in Paris. (That's me in the middle.)
Sydney insisted that I include this one of her from a mirror maze in Prague.To see more reflections go here.

Your photos are truly beautiful. I wish I WAS that family, so you could send it to me. :) The second photo actually looks like the reeds are writing on the water. And, Oh the places! Such marvelous places you've been!
