When you’re taking pictures, reflections can be a good thing or a bad thing. Sometimes you don’t realize you caught a bad reflection (often yourself) until you open the photo file on your computer. Other times you’re lucky and you end up with great pictures.
Here are a few of my photos to illustrate the WordPress weekly photo challenge theme of “reflections”. Remember you can click on each image for a larger view.
These are lilypads I photographed at Balboa Park in San Diego this past summer. You can see gorgeous close-ups of these water lilies in this post. Still water is a great medium for reflections and you can’t go wrong.
Here is a soap bubble on artificial grass. I took this picture because although it’s not the most beautiful photo out there,I think the many reflections on the bubble (the sky, the house, the grass, and me somewhere in there) and its transparent nature give it a mesmerizing effect. What do you think?
Here’s a photo of a little rain left over on a begonia leaf. If you look closely (you can click on the photo to see a larger image), you can see the bars of a metal fence are reflected in the water. Because of the shape of the leaf, the bars are not straight but curved, as if they were embracing the flower inside the leaf. They almost look like a flower stem too. Pretty neat!
I kept my favorite photo of reflections for last – rain drops sitting on a spiderweb over river rocks. You can view the rest of these rain drops here and here. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Love the lily pads and the soap bubble is just amaZing!!
Thank you! I want to say soap bubbles have to be a major photographic challenge if you don’t want to appear as a reflection in there.
Always wonderful. I like the raindrops on the spider web, and the fact that you thought to capture it. 🙂
Thanks! I love to stumble upon nature’s little miracles. I see it as nature winking at me and seeing if I notice. 🙂
Great way to look at it! Sadly, I think nature gave up and stopped winking at me years ago. Except in the fall. I seem to notice its calling then. 🙂
very nice work.
Thank you for stopping by!
Thank you! I’m glad you like my choice of pictures.
I really like the soap bubble pic.
Thanks, I do too.
