This week’s challenge is all about reflections.

As a photographer, I’m eternally in search of “the shot.” In my car, every roadside patch of wildflowers is a setting for a charming portrait of one of my children. Every family outing is an opportunity for a bit of documentary photography. I rarely look at other people without imagining how I could creatively capture their image with my camera.

Tip: you may need to experiment with your angle to get a good reflection image, but try to keep your horizon straight if you’re shooting a landscape image.

I love the quirkiness of one of our local coffee shops, operating out of an Airstream (and the brew there is top-notch!). As I was waiting at the drive-through window for yesterday morning’s caffeine infusion, I glanced up to find the most remarkable sky, framed partially in the open window of the Airstream, and reflected in the mirror-like surface.

This week, show us a mirror. You can take this photo challenge literally, and find reflections in mirrors, or in the stillness of a natural body of water. Live in an urban area? Some skyscrapers are beautifully reflective of the cityscape around them. Or, use this challenge to take a photo of yourself in the mirror. Self-documentation is important, especially for those of us who are usually behind the lens. Enjoy!
