Parking lot reflections,
Sun City West, Arizona 2008

1/150 sec at f/11, focal length: 40mm, ISO 100, Manual, -2/3 EV - 27 November 2008 9:48 am PST.
Photographed with Canon EOS 20D, EF 17-40mm f/4L, hand held.


  1. Really weird. that mixture of sharp white lines and irregular "overlay". not only visually but exif info as well: 150 sec at f/11, ..., ISO 100, Manual,... 9:48 am PST..., hand held.????



  2. What Bartek? You doubt that I can handhold that steady for 150 seconds?! Thanks for doubting, the exif has been the way, the "overlay" is blue sky reflected on the wet asphalt after a heavy rain.

  3. I have no doubt at all that you can. It was the 150 seconds in the morning that bothered me ... IT is a very interesting piece of art. When someone reads "reflection" you come to expect something reflected in a way a mirror or water surface reflects things. Here you can see very sharp lines that lead the observer to think that the mirror is perfect and what you see apart from the lines is actually THE reflected object. But here, my mind was struggling to match the reflected image to anything known. It's not very clear from the small image, but now I guess that the dark lines are cracks in the pavements and the irregular network is the MIRROR not the IMAGE.
