A reflection of the "familiar."


A reflection of the "familiar."

Sometimes we forget about what's immediately around us, and pack up and leave somewhere for a new photographic experience. It is good to take the effort to see deeper in that what we are familiar with. In essence, this photographic philosophy transfers into our personal relationships; many of which fail because we forget to take a similar notice.

Nothing to dramatic here but I shot this less than a week ago in a field next to my backyard near the Portland west hills. It had rained hard earlier in the day and I just noticed the interesting line and reflection of the fresh mud puddle and went for it. Wide angle, long exposure, and all that mumbo-jumbo.

Have a great weekend my friends!
