Reflecting on the Season - Day 8

When I was recently visiting a friends house, this decoration caught my eye.  I love how the mirrored inside of the candle holders reflect the words love and hope all around the inside of them. It is important that we remember that celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ should surround us with love and hope all year long.

Reflecting on the Season - Day 8 Prompt
Reflective surfaces can be creative muses in your photography. There is no way of knowing exactly how the reflection will translate. That's what makes it so much fun!  Have you ever looked into a mirror as a means to see things a little differently? Look around and see how unique the world around you can look in reflections. Mirrors, glass, metallic surfaces all offer us opportunities to see and shoot with a unique and often unexpected perspective. Shoot something in a reflective surface today and see what you find. It could be you looking back at you, or it could be some other kind of seasonal magic. It's all in how you look at it.  Note: Mirrors will give you a little more of an expected shot while other surfaces could distort your subject. The more you experiment the more you'll discover! Allow for trial and error time and be patient. The object is to have fun reflecting!
