Double-Take

It’s no secret that I love reflections – that rippled world of possibilities, of things that could be, might be, if only for a fleeting moment.

My reflection images tend to be abstract – visions found in windows, floors and any other shiny surface.

I don’t often capture water reflections – I simply don’t live in an area where water and the urban environment combine. And my images are usually of the reflection itself – NOT its source.

So this photograph – of the Akron YMCA building as it overlooks the Ohio Canal – is unusual for me, both in content and style.  An opportunity to flex my creative muscles and take a wider perspective.

A “double-take” if you will – of both the rippled reflection and its origin. Reality and the dream combined.

  1. Great to see you stretching and growing. Especially love how the ducks are so happy in the building’s reflection. Beautiful!!!

  2. Gorgeous capture, I love reflection shots but haven’t had the opportunity to take many recently. Will have to remedy that.

  3. The ducks add a nice element to the water. Double-take also because it is a surprise to see this image on your blog, as you wrote, different for you. Lovely colors, reflections and light.

  4. Love this reflection, such a beautiful blue of the water- love that you’ve included the source of the reflecting too 🙂

  5. This is wonderful, Brenda!
    I especially love the ducks in the reflection.
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Love this – and all those ducks paddling about in the reflection too! Beautifully done.

  7. What a gorgeous combination of colors–perfect for a reflection.

  8. This is beautiful, and I love the crowd of ducks across the surface.

I greatly appreciate your comments!
