Reflection photos are always fascinating. Whether it’s a perfect mirror image or a distorted view, reflections make great subjects for photos. Let’s look at Erin’s shot above. This is half distorted and half mirror image, with the slashing puddle mirrors being broken by the ground. This composition forces the viewer to struggle to figure out what they’re looking at, and this struggle, oddly enough, makes the image rather compelling. Also, the color in the shot is wonderful; a full range of hues of oranges and blacks and reds. It takes a lot of effort to make pools of rain water in mud look interesting; Erin pulled it off nicely.

I did want to remind everyone that tomorrow is the 4th. I know, no reminder needed, but it does make a good lead into asking for your photos of the fireworks. I plan on doing a firework flashback on Monday the 8th, so please get your photos into our Flickr group by midnight on Sunday. And if you want to see the 2012 and 2011 flashbacks, well there you go.

Brian is so DC. Born on Pennsylvania Ave (not there) to a lifelong Federal worker father and a mother who has worked for Garfinkel’s, the Smithsonian, and Mount Vernon. Raised on the “mean streets” of Cheverly, MD; went to high school at Gonzaga College High School (Hail Alma Mater!); and now trolls the corridors of Congress as a lobbyist, you couldn’t write a more quintessentially DC back-story. When he isn’t trying to save the country from itself, Brian can be found walking DC looking for that perfect photograph.
