Window Light

Windows are canvases on which light paints an interpretation of the surroundings. Sometimes the interpretation is accurate, sometimes it is closer to Cubism than reality.


About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    Brilliant, I love it…very fond of these type of photos and not everyone is switched on enough to spot the opportunity like you did.

      Glad you appreciate it, Paula. Reflections have fascinated me for a very long time, whether it is reflections in water, or glass. I am always on the look-out for them and the more bizarre they are, the happier I am.

    Oh, marvellous! Ace reflections, great colours, Cubism indeed!

    • LensScaper says:

      Thanks Sue – isn’t it extraordinary the way glass works. And special thanks to the glaziers and glass makers whose technical skills (or lack thereof) result in the chaotic reflections that we see in multi-paned windows like this.

    I like this a lot Andy. I always enjoy these ‘window reflection’ shots and this is one of the best. Very well seen.

    My first thought was of a jigsaw puzzle: its pieces arrayed across a table. The delightful irony, of course, is that this is the fully assembled puzzle. The pieces are just where they should be — at least for the moment!

    • LensScaper says:

      Thanks Linda. The Jigsaw is an appropriate analogy, and with every step the jigsaw changes. These images turn up in unlikely places too, and sometimes the ones of old buildings have glass that is less flat and therefore more prone to produce the Picasso-esque versions.

    Wonderful picture – the lines, curves and colour blocks make it very artistic.

      Many thanks for your comment and welcome to my Blog, Susan. Reflections are one of the joys of life for me, I find a lot of them in London, but this one was found in the main street of Worthing. I’ve just had a first look at your Blog and look forward to following your blog entries.

  7. Wonderful—you’ve outdone yourself!

    Wow, what a terrific photograph. All broken up in the best way. Perfectly captured.
