F8, 1/2000sec, ISO80, taken at 1.06pm on 22 July, 2008, digital Panasonic Lumix (now retired).
Winner of the Bacchus Marsh Rotary Club Art Show, photography section 2009.
Since exhibiting this at the art show I’ve had many people tell me they are very familiar with this corner of road and never seen anything beautiful about it before. It is very gratifying to hear that they now look at this part of the world with different eyes.
This image was taken at the suggestion by an acquaintance (thank you, Keryl) when I was telling her about my water project (to photograph local bodies of water). Being that there is little about, puddles are a bit of an oddity, but this morning’s wonderfully special light helped to make this image (in my opinion) exceptional and I’m quite excited about the result.
It raises thoughts in my mind about the concept of alternate or parallel universes being linked by a reflection, kept apart by a fragile, gossamer field.
This image as is. There has been no alteration to colour, not even cropping or rotation adjustment.
