Reflections

of the visual type.

reflection

I was blown away by these sights when I walked by the harbour on Wednesday.  The water was so still and the light just right for clear reflections and the boats provide so many wonderful shapes.  [display board is from CoffeShop Blog].

As well as loving them as straight images I also decided to work the pixel magic on one to make it painterly.  I was so pleased with the result that I decided it needed a grand frame.  I’m going to print this one out for sure.  Also linking to PhotoArt Friday, in the ‘what I’ve been working on’ rather than the suggested theme category.

[I used the artistic filter paint daubs then added 3 of Bonnie’s textures – yesteryear in overlay; medieval magic in multiply; and scratched  canvas in soft light]

And if your were hoping that the title referred to reflections on a more metaphysical nature you might like to check out Lee’s recent post on her plans to use 31 questions to reflect on the year.

How peaceful and serene. You did a wonderful job with this piece. I can see why you would frame it.

Your photos are so lovely, Helena. Thanks so much for the link to Lee's blog with her list of reflections. They are great journaling prompts, and while I don't think I can commit to them in December, I would love to do them later on - even possibly in January. Thanks for the inspiration!
