Window Abstract

Reflective glass is often a bonus to the photographer. In some cases it is pure reflection, often subject to a degree of distortion. In other cases – and this is an example – you get a mix of see-through and distorted reflection.

In this image we have geometric lines from the interior, areas of reflected sky and the reflected facade of the building opposite. The overall result is chaos but there are rational lines that criss -cross the image too.

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'.

  1. One of the best window reflections with see-through I’ve ever seen. Well done, Andy!

    I like it very much, Andy, it’s well-controlled chaos. I’m curious about what it looked like before processing – I guess because I wonder how much the “smoothing” made it more readable. I hope that makes sense.

    Well-controlled chaos seems a most apposite comment! I like this one

    This is absolutely fabulous, Andy. It brought to mind the 1913 Armory Show, and the Cubists. I’m particularly fond of Duchamp, but there are others that come to mind. It has a Mediterranean feel to it as well: like Santorini seen through a kaleidoscope.

      Hi Linda, thanks for those thoughts. I saw a little bit of cubism in the final result. The distortion is what often attracts me to these reflections. The blue cast over much of the image was a bonus

    Just of a superb job of capturing the photo. Thanks for sharing.
