Back to Windows


WindowReflections_3417, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.
I keep coming back to windows and shooting window reflections. This image reminds me very much of one of the images I shot down in San Antonio, very early on in my photographic career. Now, I realize some people think windows and reflections are somewhat boring but I've always liked them. I guess I like the idea that we can work with layers within the image. There's what you see, what gets reflected in the image, what's inside the room, sometimes even pieces of self portraits. I love things that work on many layers like that. I love the idea that you can move in and out and in again with a reflection. It removes some of the "flat" of photography for me. It can give an image some depth and I really like that so I guess I'll keep shooting them. Well, all of that and they are just kind of fun to shoot too.

Busy day on tap today. Got to catch up on some paperwork, get some stuff done, head out for downtown, and try to avoid the fires. Wish me luck with that last one for, I fear, I am going to need it. Austin is bone dry and there's not a drop of rain in sight.

How does that old joke go? It's so dry that trees have started whistling at passing dogs once again. Oh *groan* sorry about that. The bad jokes will stop once the rain begins, I promise.

Until next time...

lol! I had to read your dog joke to my husband a graduate of UT-Austin. I like window shots-most of mine were taken out of van windows while we rushed by the countryside...
