What’s in the mirror?
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who’s the fairest of them all?
Welcome to this week’s wrap-up post
The theme for Week 36/52 was In the mirror
My words: While cycling in Vincentia on the NSW South Coast, on the weekend I kept seeing great sights in my bike’s mirror – the beach, the bush track, the sky, others out on the walking track, dogs being walked -and then this little beauty! A Naval ship floating in Jervis Bay – how appropriate! I positioned my bike so I could capture the ship fully and there you have it – a ship in the mirror.
It took me a while to set this shot up to my satisfaction. Unfortunately I only had my iPhone to use at the time, but I’m happy with the result.
In the end I liked the sense of the horizon, the mix of the bush track ahead of me and the sparkling sea in the mirror behind me. The Navy ship was just a bonus and a happy one at that. You see my father was in the Royal Australian Navy and trained in these very waters. It’s funny how often he seems to pop up, in various ways, now that he’s gone. Both my sister and I have commented on this recently. It’s these sorts of things that keep me connected.
Photos from the group
The photos from the others in the group were stunning. Here’s a summary in my words – you really need to click the link to read their words as well as see their photos for yourself!
Feel free to follow the link above to check them out for yourself. Maybe leave a comment if one of the photos particularly takes your fancy. We always appreciate hearing your thoughts 🙂
Daniel’s photo was a lovely reflection in a puddle – he captured the feel of the evening and the colours are just gorgeous.
Grant’s photo is an interesting mirror on an old car – it captures the imagination.
Melanie’s photo is a delightful snow scene with a daffodil asking the snow to go away so it can continue to grow. It’s great having the UK connection as we get to see a variety of weather conditions.
Sharon featured a beautiful model as a different scene in the mirror. It’s a stunning photo.
Tim’s photo shows the angles of Melbourne being used as a mirror on a hot day.
You can read more about the story behind the project here: 52 week photography project – but basically I have joined with 5 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!
Life is like a mirror,
if you smile at it,
it smiles back.
With each photo we also submit some accompanying words, which can be just as interesting as the photo itself some weeks! This can include the subject, the setup, the story behind it and even our processes.
How did you like our interpretations this week? Let me know in a comment below, I always appreciate hearing from you.
I can’t believe we’re up to 36 weeks already!
Next week’s theme is: Fruit/vegetables
Enjoy your week ahead.
