Puddles and a self portrait.....



Last Saturday I was out in the yard walking around to see if the grass was too wet to cut, which of course it was. I was fascinated with the reflections of the top of my neighbor's house and the clouds in the puddles of water from the rainfall we had earlier. My default inclination is to grab my camera and start shooting, so that's what I did. I came up with some surreal and interesting images which I will probably use in a photomontage or digital painting. I like to take self portraits of shadows of myself or reflections of myself in mirrors or any other reflective surface. As I was taking pictures of different angles, I was very careful not to get my reflection in any of the shots. As I was just about finished and looking for any angles that I might have missed in the viewfinder, there was a really neat composition with my reflection in it and I thought this would make a good self portrait, so I captured it. Here is my newest self portrait.
