Quickly weighing in on this week’s photo challenge, to “take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or . . . the foreground, the center of attention.”
It seems a particularly apt challenge for someone who feels constantly surrounded by shadows of scenes past.
This red orb is both foreground and background, taking center stage while its own background somehow remains in equally sharp focus. Within it is a mini-me, more flowers reflected from in front of me and the outdoors whisked indoors through the overhead glass panes of a plant nursery.
The most peculiar thing about this picture? For me it is that I was moved to take this picture, unlike any other I’ve taken, the day before the challenge was issued.
