When I started to go through my photos for my inaugural Mortal Muses post I'll be honest I felt a twinge of anxiety. I worried that it wouldn't be enough, it wouldn't wow or win the crowd over and on top of it there was a theme, two. That kinda threw a wrench into my plan of shock and awe or at the very least dazzle them with pretty bokeh.
I looked through the last few weeks of photos and I came across one in particular that I took at the local swimming pool. As I walked around the perimeter I couldn't help but notice objects began pairing up. Flippers, goggles, floating noodles they all seemed to be coupling. Sometimes a brief burst of hot summer air would swoop in and disperse the pool floats but even then I noticed there still was two, one above and one below and if you look very closely, one reflecting.
A repeat pattern whether it be a replicate item or just a shadow adds strength balance. I am especially smitten when that object happens to be lotus flowers. I think Brenda found the perfect balance with this paring.
