What You See Is What You Get


Not quite sure what it is about reflections that grabs my attention.


Maybe it's the escape from reality that they offer.


Or it may be the  wannabe-Impressionist-Painter  that draws me.


It could be the way that 'nature' reflects itself without any help from us.


Makes me ponder the first time 'humans' saw their reflection in water.


Can you just imagine what they conjured up! 


Obviously the attraction hasn't left us, for me anyway.

  2. I saw my reflection in the mirror this morning and it wasn't pretty. I should have taken your advice and shaved while looking through rippling water.

  3. Enjoyed your ponderings today! Reflections sometimes catch my eye, but I'm more drawn to shadows -- light and dark -- especially shadows on snow for some reason.

    1. That is your mysterious self showing through, Debra. I agree snow casts wonderful shadows as do sand dunes.

  4. Nice pics, I like reflections too - in the water, not in the mirror!

    1. Water and mirrors do not 'mix' well!

  5. Very pretty.
    You can think of it another way - maybe reflections draw you because you're a thinker, and like to reflect.

  6. very interesting and thoughtful...I seem to be drawn to shadows and light although I do like to have small mirrors around the house for the light they reflect...I am a conumdrum.

    1. Guess I may be a conumdrum as well, Jojo. I have BIG mirrors around the house to fill it with light and make it appear bigger and brighter!

    Oh my gosh, I love reflections. I go absolutely camera crazy with water reflections - they are my total favorite. These photos are amazing - and yes, sometimes they do look like impressionism. Beautiful colors - great job with the camera!
