How are you reflected in what you choose to photograph? What glimpses of yourself do you offer to the world, even when you're not actually in the photograph? Do you ever find yourself drawn in two directions at once? Given the choice of opposites, how do you reveal yourself?
Ocean or lake? (Salty? Fresh?)
Sky or canyon? (Stormy? Deep?)
Valley or mountaintop? (Verdant? Breathtaking?)
Countryside or cityscape? (Moonlight? Neon?)
Today, I'm drawn to both the beach and the city. In my photo, I am millions of golden-silver lights reflected on the September sea. And dotintime is an endless indigo cloud-filled sky reflected on a busy city street. Seemingly opposites, they're really just two unique reflections of the same skies above.
