Which Way is Up?

To inspire creativity, to think outside the box...grab a mirror (one with no frame works best) and your camera and head outside. See what you see...and play! The use of reflection in our images reaches beyond what we know to more.

I used my 60 mm prime lens and focused on the bunch of grapes, allowing reality and reflection to blur as distance from the grapes increased. I leaned up close to the fence and shot downward. The grapes were resting on a mirror tile butted up close to the base of the fence.

In processing I turned this image into black and white. I felt the colour distracted from the textures and lines.
