52 Weeks of Me: Week 2 (Reflective Surfaces)

This week's theme for Cara and Jessie's 52 Weeks of Me project was "Reflective Surfaces." I had a little harder time than I would have thought. I looked in regular mirrors, driver-side and rear-view car mirrors, retail shop windows, etc. and didn't like any of the photos I was getting. I didn't spend a lot of time outside this week, so most of the shots I was experimenting with were indoors and I just didn't like the light. Then last night I was resting my head at the dining room table while the kids were coloring. I looked down, saw my reflection in the table and thought, "Last hope of getting a shot!" This is how it turned out below and you can check out the others in the Flickr pool here.

I love it. Definitely a slightly different take on reflective surfaces. Much more subtle.

(I actually saw it on Facebook first and was going to comment there... and thought better to come here!)

very creative. well done! I like the angle of the shot as well.

The angle and the smile on your face totally make the picture. That's definitely thinking outside the box for reflective. ♥

This one was hard for me too...it is tough getting the right angle with your body and the camera! You did a beautiful job..that is such a creative idea!

There you go getting all creative on me again! You rock Shelly, and I love how you think outside the box!
