You can find similar reflections and changes in perspective just about anywhere. From water and glass to metallic surfaces, share a photo that captures something reflected back to you in a way that made you look at your surroundings differently.
While traveling for home from a training I stopped to stretch near a small pond in the Adirondacks. We had just had a rainfall and as I stepped out of the car I noticed the reflection of the red Porsche in the puddle so I snapped this photo.
If you can train your senses to perceive the movement of the minute hand of a clock, what is to stop you for training them to ‘slow’ down when you look at the tree or a puddle? ~ Colin Wilson ~
I love photographing reflections in puddles, windows, lakes, droplets, and wherever they may appear. When looking at the reflections it reminds me how important it is to stop once in a while and reflect on my own life and the direction I am taking, to stop and look at the world with fresh ways.
“Life is Only a Reflection of What We Allow Ourselves to See” ~ Trudy Symeonakis Vesotsky ~
Take time to stop and enjoy the moment, open your eyes to the beauty around you. It may be hidden in a window, a puddle, a lake, glass, counter top, or someone’s sunglasses. Learn to see the world with the eyes of a child finding beauty in everything and enjoy living in the moment.
“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.” ~ Camille Pissarro ~
