The last two prompts for Picture Inspiration have dealt with reflection. Week 6 was "Seeing Double" and the task was to capture both an object and its reflection. I looked all week and never found anything despite the fact that I had my friends looking for me as well while we were in Canada that week. Finally, right before the end of the week, I took the situation into my own hands. Tracy had a piece of glass that had been cut to replace a cracked one in our window. I put one of my favorite vintage cameras on it and put it on the lateral file in my studio.
This week's prompt was "The Shape of Surprise" and we were looking for unexpected reflections. I found several. Tracy recently purchased an iPad and I had it on my lap trying to look up some information while he was driving. The reflection through my sun roof was so strong, I couldn't read the iPad, but I did get this photo. I like that you can see a bit of the text from the iPad as well as the reflection.
This afternoon I was out and about. I stopped at a little park on the Erie Canal outside Palmyra, NY. There's an old bridge, the remains of a lock, and a brightly painted little house that must be used for some kind of maintenence.
Just for fun, here are couple more from the canal.
But my favorite image is one I dragged out of the archives. I took this a couple of years ago in Vermont. I'd gotten out of the van to take some photos and as I walked back to the car, this is what I saw.
So much beautiful fall color. It's finally beginning to feel like spring here, but it hasn't been warm enough, long enough for the trees to bud or the daffodils to bloom. I'm hoping by the end of the week, there'll be some color in my photos again.
