Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is an adequate perception of the world. –Hans Margolius

I seem to be running into lots of reflections lately — reflections in my photos, reflections in my thoughts. I have been working on the Saturday’s Insight for this blog and it has to do with photographing reflections. It’s been a very reflective week!

This image was shot in the late 90s on film — remember when there was film? (I have to admit I fully embraced the digital lifestyle from the very start — mostly because I love to shoot photos and the cost of film and processing was sending me to the poor house.) The gal on the horse is one of my neighbors and the image was shot at her place. It looks like we’re out in the middle of the woods, but really I was standing in their backyard. We had just finished shooting some photos in the pasture for an art project I was doing at the time. This was just a bonus shot. Bonus shots are one of my favorite parts of photography.

There is a great blog on reflections here: http://www.slrphotographyguide.com/blog/inspirational/photographing-reflections-25-inspirational-examples.html
