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.
