Weekly Photo Challenge: Trial 1 – The cupboard

la vetrinettaThe weekly photo challenge this week is background.  “In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.”

I prefer landscapes to portraits, so for this challenge I had to take a photo that would enclude a person…me in fact.  This was taken last night with lamplight to create a reflection on the glass of my cupboard.  I decided then to transform it into a b/w photo.
