Rural Road Sphere Mirror Two

Posted by Joyce (Montana, United States) on 22 September 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

So, this post shows yesterday's gorgeous rural road mirror sphere again, this time reflecting me on the hill above photographing a regular, pink-legged resort guest walking up the curvy road. From my higher POV you see the roof of the resort lodge in the canyon below. She looks like a pixie, and I look like one of my own weird fence post posts.

Thank you for your visit and comments.

Kudos to you for spotting the photographic potential of this road mirror...another great pov!

@myky: Thanks for the salute Deb. That shimmering blue orb just arrested me.

Jason Politte from Conway, AR, United States

Nicely done catching the real scene in the reflection. Cool shot Joyce!

@Jason Politte: A nice improvement over the "Far Side" cartoon with the giant bloodshot eye filling the side mirror. (You'll snicker even if you didn't see that one.)

LauraS from Chico, United States

Oh bravo! Wonderful share!

@LauraS: Glad you like! Was fun. I drive past it regularly and I will probably stretch it's postability to the max.

Don from Spokane, United States

A good conception as to how this shot might be done. And, it worked out so well. Excellent!

@Don: Mostly a lot of fun. Thanks Don.

The combination of mirror, camera, landscape, and human... is very successful and interesting. It reveals the layers of reality, and thumbs its nose at the concept of "time", for here is a frozen reality moment that is also mirrored and therefore alternate/reversed. It's a form of fun magic, really, and I like it a lot !

@Rick: You wax metaphysical so easily and with such good clear sence. :-D Perhaps that was what I was feeling when I just could not pass this gorgeous orb without mouth agap, gape... (Just arrested me.) Acqua is my favorite color too. Glad you like Rick.

What a neat image ... you must have used a long lens for this! ;D

@Judy aka L@dybug: My point & shoot feature caught a real doozy huh!

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

What a great difference in luminosity in the reflected image. It really grabs the attention. And the tiny human figure of the person walking in the curve really pops out. Fantastic! Kudos to you and to the people in charge of cleaning the mirrors :-) They seem to be in pristine condition.

@Francisco Romero: Thanks so much for your approval Franciso. Glad you get a kick out of the value of such a mundane thing as a traffic mirror as I sure have. They will have snow stuck to them not too far away. It's only been there 2 weeks.

Calusarus from St Sorlin en Valloire, France

A very creative shot with this mirror

@Calusarus: Thanks! As fun as it is creative. The sphere is a symbol of infinity which grabs the eye to begin. Sort of a circular plug from another universe too.

Landy from Miami, United States

@Landy: Thanks for stopping by Landy. Was fun shooting.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Mirror is a fun subject to photograph. Yours is so nice that I can find your creativity.

@Hiro: 私は丘の真ん中に鏡を調べる。それはUFOのようになります。私は停止して笑っていたが、撮影する。 :-D

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

You are outstanding in your field. Sorry, I just had to say it. LOL Another cool shot and very creative.

@B. Thomas: Yay!!!!! Outstanding in my field, you cleverclogs. Boy I am having a lot of fun lately -- new lovely places around here, and some goofy captures too. Hey Barbara, would you tell me how to make "here" the highlighted place where an URL is, say that jumps back at a previous post. I cannot figure out how to not paste in a huge url. Thanks, your brilliant friend, rubber legged, 2js.

Monik from PARIS, France

Bien vu! J'aime beaucoup les effets de miroirs et celui-ci semble bien insolite dans cette grande étendue presque déserte!

23 Sep 2011 7:51pm

@Monik: Merci Monik. C'était un rire de voir l'orbe grands jolies semblant flotter dans l'air! J'ai pris une photo d'elle, et puis j'ai remarqué que j'étais en trop. J'ai eu un petit rire espiègle va. Une impulsion AM3.
