Reflections

Walking back to the car after The Daughter’s graduation I was thrilled to get a chance to take some city shots of Auckland for a change.

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

    1. Thanks Harry – I had a ball roaming Auckland and looking for interesting images. Since picking up the camera again I find myself always looking around…much more intently.

  1. Wonderful, Jo. That first one – it looks like the road is a lake, it’s like glass, incredible. Thanks for hopping on board with the challenge!

    PS Bert and Ernie – totally gay. 🙂

  2. VERY nice, both of ’em. And so different — like photos from two different photographers. Split personality, Jo? Or just very versatile? For me, I admire and respect the first one, and LOVE the second: amazing how emotional some of these responses are.

  3. Fledgling? I don’t think so! Th first photo is disorientating almost, the people look like acrobats and the cars like they are on a transporter. Is it a full on flood on bad drainage? nasty weather. the second one is also very clever and leaves me wondering what the building would look like without any reflections. Good work girl!

    1. Awwwwwww…thanks Gilly, but I still have sooooooo much to learn. Sorry to disillusion you but there was no flooding…just digital editing to achieve that effect.
      As for the 2nd one it is hard to say as the reflection was so pronounced when I took it I never really noticed the colour of the windows.

  4. Love the reflections in both of them. I know it’s not “real” in the first one, but it really adds to the picture. The other one is sort of disorientating. Great!

  6. Well, canoe beat me to the word I was gonna use: “surreal” – both pics have a “Dali-esque” feel to them. Nice manipulation! You are just getting better and better all the time.

    1. Hi thanks…not sure if I will make it this week. Having trouble getting time for anything. Just one of those weeks I guess, but I hope you keep it up and I will take part again !

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
