Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflection

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is Reflection.   In the challenge post, Jared Bramlett wrote about reflections in water, windows and mirrors.  He posted a photograph of a bridge with a mirror used in the composition.

Reading the post gave me an idea:   I’ve had a large mirror — about 3 feet by 5 feet — currently set in a spare bedroom while we work on some remodeling and redecorating elsewhere.  My original idea was to use the mirror to get a shot of the outside through the windows, similar to the photos that I posted about a month ago of the outside reflecting on a glass shower door.   The light wasn’t right — either with natural sunlight or with a flash to get the reflections I wanted.  When I had time to do this, it wasn’t the right time of day.  But, I liked this shot.  It reminds me a little bit about the artistic joke of the artist painting a picture of a landscape artist painting a picture of the landscape artist painting the landscape . . . into eternity.  Except, in this case, the “artist” was not in the picture.   Not sure whether I should title this “Camera: Self-Portrait” or “In the mind’s eye”.

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is GREEN.  Most of the trees around me have finished showing off  their fall plumage.   The bright colors are gone and there is little left that is green.  Grays and browns have taken over until Spring.

But, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t green things around me:
