Two stainless steel abstracts for Ailsa’s Weekly Travel Theme. Didn’t travel too far for these; waterdrops in a messy sink, captured with my iPhone and edited in LR & PS.

I like to look at reflections — in mirrors, dewdrops, water, wherever. I also like to photograph them, although the images are seldom as cool as the original. It is hard to capture the fleeting.
The other day, I noticed a very clear reflection in the oddest of places — the shower wall. I couldn’t resist grabbing my camera.
I took a photo looking out the window too:
Today, because I was in a silly mood, I decided to shoot while standing at that shower wall, through the window. I hadn’t wiped down the shower doors yet, so the steam and droplets created another layer.
Of course, my favorite shot wasn’t of the reflection at all, but of the droplets on the shower door:
These aren’t what I typically think of when I think of the concept of leading lines in photographs. When I started to photograph the last stalks of alstroemeria, still clinging to life after a week in the vase, I did not have Ailsa’s challenge in mind (Ailsa, Where’s My BackPack, Travel Theme: Leading Lines). But, once I downloaded this particular image, I could help but play with the orientation, the saturation and the color. No alstroemeria were injured in the making of these images!
This started out as a picture that I took as part of yesterday’s Weekly Photo Challenge. I didn’t like it as-is, the inside of something common so I added and warped and stretched and mutated the original image. I had no idea where I was going with this. I don’t think it is done yet.
Abstract photo. I envision some additional pieces for this work.
