This is my first time taking part in a photo challenge on WordPress. It was fun and interesting. It was also my first time taking out my camera and deliberately taking photos of particular things.
I didn’t want it to be obvious – like me a photo of me in a mirror with the camera in my hand.
And I didn’t want it to be a landscape with trees reflecting in a river – because I didn’t think I could do that justice (check out this amazing example).
So I just walked around my parents house yesterday looking for reflections. I took a lot of photos. Some good, some bad. The two I like the best are below.
I took the featured image tonight, about an hour ago. I was out for a walk with Claire. The weather was amazing so I decided to take my camera. We were out for an hour and a half and I hadn’t taken a single photo. Then on the home stretch, about 500 metres from our apartment, I spotted a guy sitting on the bank of the Grand Canal (you can see him in the distance in the middle of the photo). And then I looked around and realised that everything around him was being reflected in the water. Bingo.
So I took the photo, slapped a few filters on it (thanks Google Photo!) and here we are.
Good challenge. I’m looking forward to next week’s already!
PS – let me know what you think of the photos. All feedback welcome!
