30 day photo challenge day 3 part 2

  • Posted on December 16, 2011 at 6:45 pm

fast forward several hours. i was still disappointed with my challenge pictures from earlier, but all that was about to change. enter a mischievous little sprite named smidge. smidge was playing in the kitchen and somehow got up onto my knickknack shelf. peeking out through a lazer sculpture a friend brought back from a mexican vacation, she was grinning engagingly and then i saw it. look at me
lovely reflections serendipitously staring back at me…
i grabbed my camera and began to shoot.
fun house mirrors

soso irresistible
my little sweetheart saved the day! 🙂

3. reflections

today’s challenge was unexpectedly difficult. i started off to just do this one quickly as i didn’t have much time. we dragged some large books to the french doors and eilidh clambered up for our first attempt. in spite of all the smudges on the door we did get a reflection but it was disappointingly faint.
out the door
eilidh’s curls were glowing in the sunlight making for a surprisingly lovely picture, but not right for the challenge.

we moved over to the window and she obligingly jumped up. this time the only reflection was of the reflector i was using to enhance the back lighting. definitely not what i had in mind!
only a reflector
further attempts only yielded the same result, so it was time to move on.

which we did, to the other side of the house and a west facing window. since the reflection was so faint in the strong east light i thought moving to the shadowy side might help, and it did – to a degree
faint shadow
this time i could actually see her face in the reflection. it was still very washed out, but i decided that it would have to do, since i had run out of time.
