Reflection

reflection

I think this is a very clever photo (even if I did take it myself).

I'm parked outside a car showroom. My car is reflected in the glass doors, behind which you can see the display vehicles in the showroom. The door bears the Greek word for 'push'. The reflection on the window is of a residential area that didn't exist 20 years ago, created by the urban sprawl. This area is located just beyond the town to the east, on the road leading to the ferry port.

  2. I like reflections for the same reasons. I think they are special ways of seeing things.

  5. I agree, it is a very clever photo. I have played with taking photos of windows and reflections. I have found out that some people think it is clever, and some just don't get it. To me it is like getting two photos in one.

  6. On reflection :-D the little spot lights in the shop look like little U.F.Os all over the sky above the city of Chania...

    I like the advert on the licence plate of one of the cars, calling the viewer to "Focus"...if you can :-D
