Always Reflecting

 Reflecting watercolor on Yupo 7"x11"

I, like countless others, have a fascination for photographing reflections.  I am intrigued how the reflections are sometimes mirror images and other times diffused and forming beautiful abstracts. To me, the play of light, color, patterns echoing the reality in its own terms - when an object is reflected off glass, mirror, water or any other shiny surface - is a mystery and miracle at the same time. Fortunately or unfortunately,  quite often I  find I become aware of the beauty of the surroundings as I catch the reflections. 

I enjoyed working on the yupo and now I want to explore this same image on a larger size regular paper soon!

That's beautiful Meera! Those reflections are beautiful, I love the purples and yellows, and they're so full of interesting abstract shapes. Really, really nice! :)

Thank you, Crystal. It is interesting that the abstract shapes are really diffused reflections of backyard, deck, doors. and porch of the house (Row house in DC) facing it :)

Good work Meera, look forward to the bigger scale soon! Yes, the play of light is also one of the most intriguing element of God's creation. It is endless.

Beautiful -- the details in the brickwork and the sophistication the distortion provides the images...
