reflections


Mirrors outside a frame shop in Bath, England.

Mirrors outside a frame shop in Bath, England.

This is a photo I took during my 2005 trip to London. We went on an excursion to Bath, and while roaming the streets, I was struck by this shopfront of a frame and mirror store. (Don’t worry, it didn’t hurt me.) A car happened to pass by into the frame (or frames) just as I took the picture.

I’m quite fond of reflected elements in photos and other visual art, so when I saw over at Webs of Significance that this week’s PhotoHunt theme was “reflections,” I felled compelled to investigate further.

So, I’ve decide to give PhotoHunt a try, having seen YTSL (and occasional others) particpate many a time. I saw that you no longer need to post their blogroll, so it seems less cumbersome to participate. In case you haven’t come across it before, PhotoHunt is weekly blogging even hosted by tnchick.com where people are invited to participate by posting a photo once a week on a given theme.

Of course, now that the theme of reflection has come up, I have a few more reflections I’d like to post. I’ll save them for another day. And maybe even a list.

    That is a very cool picture. It’s my first Photohunt as well.

  5. I’m not trying to pun when I say I really like the framing of this picture, but the pun is also true.

  6. well, alejna, looks like i may well be copying you yet again…photohunt looks fun!! wonder if i can make the rest of this year’s pics just be more excuses to post shots of the new puppy?

  7. Welcome to the Photo Hunt! Find it a lot of fun — not only to decide what to post following a theme but then to visit to see how other responded to the same theme and get people visiting your blog too.

    And what a wonderful first photo with which to begin your participation. :)

  8. I just so fell in love with his!

  9. You are a one-woman PR machine! I don’t think I’ve had more fun on the internet until reading your site. I feel like I need to find a pants-shaped cookie cutter and send you a big box of cookies, or something. (Cookies were the only thing pants related I could think of at this late hour.)

    Thank you for making my dissertation procrastination so much more worthwhile!

  10. it seems like I used to read blogs that did the photo hunters thing, and either they stopped or I don’t read those blogs anymore or something… anyhow, I had nearly forgotten about it.

    fun

  11. I didn’t kow about this – neat idea !

  12. Nice photo! Oh, and welcome back to photohunt! Looking forward to more photos from you… :)
