Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Recently, I’ve been captivated by reflections, whether it is an actual reflection in a pool of water. the way the light shimmers reflectively through a window, or a more metaphoric reflection, one of reflecting on life and the world around me.

Here is my entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, an unusual view of a bridge, with an unusual reflection as well.

Unusual View: Under the Bridge

About Anne Camille

I bought my first SLR camera (a Yashica TL-ELECTRO) when I was 17 and imagined I would become a great photographer. My love of photography, unfortunately, was thwarted by a photo-journalism class (the first "C" in college, but not the last!) as well as several packages of accidentally exposed photo paper and the high cost of film on a student budget. An unexpected gift of a Canon Rebel xSI four years ago reawakened those old, dormant dreams. A bit wiser now, I knew that photog instructor was full of bs even if technically he was pretty good. I began snapping away and haven't looked back. Mostly, I shoot nature photography because flowers and rocks don't talk back at you when you pose them. I am a photographer, a reader, a writer, a thinker, a dreamer. Mostly you'll see the photographer here, but signs of the others shine through every now and again.

    I agree with sinpolaris: very Escher-esque! I love the way the reflection “fills in” between the real studs.

    A real winner here. Makes me think of Andy Goldsworthy for some reason.

    • Anne Camille says:

      Thanks, Mobius. I take that as a HUGE compliment. I really like Andy Goldsworthy’s work, although I didn’t know about him until last Fall. I think the photos on this post: http://wp.me/p1tzBV-vR are highly influenced by what I’ve seen of Goldsworthy’s work. I love how he takes things in nature and arranges them into something else as beautiful as the pieces that comprises the work. Makes you see the individual parts as well as the whole.

  13. I like all photographs that have reflexes. Some are hard to spot and some are not good. Yours is just terrific!

    Terrific view of the bridge. Thanks for “liking” my blog today. I look forward to following yours.

    I had to look for a while to understand – two pools of water.

    • Anne Camille says:

      Yes, two streams of water under the bridge. Often times, at this time of the year, the path where I was standing would be underwater too — one big continuous stream. The creek is really low right now because we’ve had such a mild winter w/ no snow melt.

    I had to do a double take. The reflection looks like the real thing. UNUSUAL INDEED! Great shot.


    • Anne Camille says:

      Thanks, Francine. If I had cropped this a bit differently, I probably could have rotated the photo and it would still look about the same. It does take a second look to figure out what is solid and what is the reflection.

  23. Patti Kuche says:

    Such a startling and clear reflection! Love the tones!

    • Anne Camille says:

      Thanks, Patti. I love the different tones of concrete. The light was just right (not long after sunrise) for capturing this image in this location. Was serendipitous as I probably have not been on this portion of this greenway trail for about five years and just had this wild idea to walk there and shoot.

    Had to look a couple of times to figure it out – nice!

  25. elmediat says:

    Very creative use of perspective and reflective surfaces. Well done !

  26. Robin says:

    Wonderful capture there… Love unusual images

  27. Sunshine says:

    Unusual eye play under the bridge . . . charming!

  28. sinpolaris says:

    Moderately Escher-esque. Nice picture.

  29. Wow, what an awesome capture. I really like this photo.
