I love reflections and I am especially drawn to reflections in store windows. Recently I took some photos during walks in various local shopping districts.
I chronicled the walks on my personal blog, Sometimes You Get So Confused. I’ll provide the link to each location’s post in case you want to see the context of the photos.
Here are some shots from a bridal shop in Jenkintown, PA.
I never looked at reflections in this way. Thanks for opening my eyes to another venue for beauty.
Thank you. Some time ago I belonged to a camera club (so long ago that most people were still using film though I had a little digital camera, people thought that was nuts, but for me, it made me interested in photography, because for the first time I could take lots of shots and not worry about results and wasting film), and because of this digital camera, I participated in one of our competitions on the theme of reflections. My eyes were opened as to how many places include reflections and types of reflections there are. I especially love the store window kind – the combination of the inner and outer worlds in juxtaposition (often very odd pairings) fascinates me. And I always think the photos are beautiful, as well as meaningful.
I just use my phone, but maybe I want a real camera now.
I have had different cameras over the years, including some kind of fancy ones, but I think my favorite is either my phone, or, if I want better zoom, I have a point and shoot that I have been really happy with. I guess if I did more close-up macro photography, or low light, or whatever, I would upgrade again, but I like how small the camera or phone is , and how easy to use, so that I use it!
My sister just got the new iphone and the camera is excellent.
I have an older model (lots older) and I think it is as good if not better than the camera except for the zoom. Who knew it could come to that? At the camera club of my past, many people would not even say a digital camera was a real camera back then. Things have sure changed.
There is something a bit spectral or Miss Havisham about these photos. Ghosts of weddings past or hauntings of weddings never to be.
I felt exactly that, that this store is somehow caught in a time warp, or else frozen, and the new world has not entered the door. It looked very yesterday to me, a long ago yesterday.
I agree with Laura. Haunted. (K)
Yes, haunted is the word. Ghosts of a past life. In a few short months and already they are multiplying.
