Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

This week, both Pixelventures – March 18 and The Weekly Photo Challenge have us reflecting on reflections….

My archives are full of reflections…and some of them have already been published in one form or another, it’s one of my favorite subjects, so without further ado…

Today it’s raining.  Nothing unusual for March, but although I’m not overly fond of rain, I have to admit it can give me something interesting to photograph.  When I look for reflections, I’m not looking for a mirror-like picture, though if that comes up, I won’t throw it away.  I shoot though for effect and I often use my photos to prompt myself or illustrate a story or poem I’ve written.  Here then are three rain photos taken not far from my house:

This is a photo of a mud puddle…upside down.  I liked how the colors of the grass and leaves accented the darkness of the puddle and loved seeing those trees reflected in the water.

This is a little further along the road.  Here the trees tops reflectin the water on the road … further along almost out of sight are two people walking their dog.

My walk finished, I came upon this traffic mirror…I tinted the photo in olive-green…

Thanks for following today’s post, shortly I will be posting a series of traffic mirrors,one of my favorite reflective subjects. I like to think that it’s sort of like looking where you’ve already been, a sort of walk into the past 🙂

More photos by fellow bloggers!
