Reflections, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina

OK, I can’t resist having another go at Ailsa‘s Alternative Photo Challenge on the theme of “Reflections“…

More photos from these places, along the Hudson River and in Long Island Sound, are here, here, and here.


Some other nice “Reflections” posts:

WordPress has not yet posted a theme for this week’s Photo Challenge… So photo-bloggers addicted to a regular weekly Challenge have impatiently begun taking matters into their own hands. Over at her blog Where’s my backpack?, Ailsa has proposed a Photo Challenge of her own, which everyone is invited to join, with the theme of “Reflections“.

“Reflections” is a perfect theme for me. Kayaking, or just walking around after the rain as Ailsa did, inverted reflections in water are everywhere, often more intriguing and mysterious than the scenes reflected. I’ve already posted some of these water reflections here and here and here and here and here

But “Reflections” also brings to mind our recent visit to the 9/11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan. The surfaces of the memorial, and the glass walls of the towers now rising all around, are full of reverberating reflections: of each other, of the clouds, of the visitors, of memories…

More photos are here.
And my second take on “Reflections” is here.
