This is my submission for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #25: Reflections. Please follow the link to read Patti’s post.
In her post, Patti said she is fascinated with reflections. Me, too!
The photo I really want to post here is the one that has a transformer substation reflected in a dirty rain puddle. I spent a lot of time looking for it, but didn’t find it. Even searching location didn’t help! (Yes, I need to do something with my phone photos!) Anyway, this transformer substation, to be honest, is not something I would consider photographing. That particular rain puddle, in the middle of a walkway, wasn’t interesting at all. But the reflection of the transformer substation reflected in that dirty rain puddle was amazing. I remember standing there confusing with the picture I saw on the phone. Is it possible that there is always another side of “story” that I had missed in many occasions?
That brings me to a different kind of reflection. Winston Churchill said, “Christmas is a season not only of rejoicing but of reflection.” That kind of reflection, I mean.
My daughter woke me up early in the morning on the Christmas day. “Time to open gifts,” she said excitedly. (By the way, it is so nice to see your adult child acting like a little kid!)
Every trip we took, I had bought something for her. “This is from the black forest.”, “This came from Halifax.”…, etc. After she was done opening her gifts, I added, “We think of you all the time, even when we were traveling. ”
Then, it was our turn to open our gifts.
“This is from my Finland trip.”, “I got this when I was in Tennessee,” she said.
I didn’t know… I had assumed… Again, how much of the truth that we really know?
I had a wonderful Christmas. I hope you did, too.
Thanks to Patti for this great challenge.
