Photo Challenge #15: Reflections on... {12-28-09}
 
2 Attachment(s)
anything! I'm really excited about this week's challenge! I've always found reflections very interesting and intriguing. Especially water reflections! But there are plenty of other things that you can find to capture a reflection on, it doesn't have to be on water. I just want you to keep your eyes open for some kind of a reflection whether it be on water, glass, ice or just something shiny! Get ready and get out there with your camera!



Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ You can jump in and start any of the photo challenges at anytime..
~ Again - HAVE FUN! :)


This first pic was taken of the BB&T Tower reflecting on a pool of water downtown. I think its one of my top favorites that I've ever taken! The second pic is of my parents Christmas tree reflecting on their front door.

This sounds like a fun one.
I have a few to share that are not current but I will wait after the challenge is over to post mine.

Maybe I will have some free time this week and get out there for some new ones (fingers crossed)

I love all the ones posted so far.
Great job ladies.

Nice one Connie! Great challenge. I've been waiting for a "reflection" challenge. I'm going to do something I did in photography class in college. It's wacky and fun. Be back tomorrow!!!:D

StampUK 12-28-2008 05:28 PM

Angie and Connie, great shots!! I love the tower one!

Hmm.. reflection. I'll have to think about this one..

I finally got something done. This is a doll that my mother gave my DD over the weekend.

weederberries 12-29-2008 07:38 AM

My first challenge submission and I'm breaking the "new" rule. We've been stuck in family portrait mode for a month, but this is one of our favorites from our trip to Germany. This is in a town called Landsberg.

Oh Lisa, love this pic!

weederberries 12-29-2008 07:56 AM

Oh, I almost forgot this one from Germany too. This is in Berlin. You can see my husband taking the picture. He appears 3 times in the middle of the photo in a white shirt with black camera backpack.

Wow these photos are great. I love the different way you ladies have captured the reflections. Great challenge Angie. I will have to get on this one.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone. I'm having fun getting to know my new camera and participating in these challenges. I'm also learning so much from you gals.

It's my holiday self portrait.

My husband got the camera for me for Christmas, though he gave it to me at Thanksgiving....so I am still figuring out how to use it.

bekah1964 12-29-2008 09:04 PM

Here is a shot I did with my pinhole camera. Enjoy

I took these reflection photos in the biggest reflector that is near me, the Mississippi river. In two of the photos you can see bald eagles flying. I love taking photos down by the river in January, I just get a little cold. This morning there were about 20 bald eagles flying over the river and catching fish.

Love these! I'm also very jealous that you have bald eagles in your area. I live half a mile from the Ohio River and have never seen a bald eagle here. We have herons, hawks, falcons, etc., but not eagles. Lucky you!

Quiltnstamper 12-30-2008 08:31 AM

Marilynn - you are lucky to have bald eagles. I have never seen one irl.

Quiltnstamper 12-30-2008 08:32 AM

All of these pictures are wonderful. Can't wait to get out and do one.

MariLynn 12-30-2008 08:41 AM

I know how lucky I am. I know that there are a lot of beautiful places to live. I have moved a lot and have seen God's beauty everywhere. There is something special about the Mississippi River though. There is so much wildlife along it. Especially in my area.

girlzclubstampers 12-30-2008 09:00 AM

WOW - these are all so COOL!!!

Very cool. You are on your way to becoming quite the photographer. ;)

Reflection
 
http://i554.photobucket.com/albums/j...9/IMG_6512.jpg
We just got home from a quick, family get-away to Lake Arrowhead (about a 2 hour drive from San Diego.) I had envisioned shooting some icicles for this challenge, but with a week of daytime temperatures in the 70's, I had to settle with putting snow on a tree branch, waiting for it to melt, THEN shooting the reflection in the water drop. Had fun with my macro lens though! (I think you can see me in the reflection as well...would this photo qualify as a self portrait too?? );)
