Reflecting on Reflections
The nice thing about a wet winter and spring, is that it leaves big puddles everywhere. What good are puddles, you ask? Puddles mean reflections! I love reflections; it is always fun to see if there are any interesting reflections in a body of water, a mirror, some windows, etc. It’s really important to walk around and look different viewpoints, because the angle you are viewing your reflective surface at determines what the reflection looks like.
Thinking about reflections made me think of a some of my favorite photos of reflections, taken several years back before I had a blog. So before I get to the recent shots, here are some old shots from the study abroad archives that I couldn’t resist throwing up. Cities are great places for reflections: windows, buildings, mirrors, possibilities are everywhere.

Now, back to the shots that originally started this post. If you’re outside the city it can be a bit more difficult to find interesting reflections, since you usually have to rely on a body of water, but they can still be fun.

This turned into abnormally long post, but in short, photographing reflections can be fun. Be on the lookout, because they can show up when you least expect them.
