The Bethadilly 52 Week 22 – Reflection

with the prompt for week 22 of the bethadilly 52 being reflection, i had many ideas in mind when thinking of how i would incorporate a reflection into my image.  and like many of my favorite images, this image was created out of spontaneity.

if there is one thing that i love about riding in the car with a little one, it’s watching her reactions in the rear seat baby mirror.  and i love that when i turn around to smile at her, she smiles right back.  as we were heading to dinner the other night and my husband was buckling her in, i just happened to have my camera with me to photograph this moment.  and while my focal point is on my husband, i love that this is a creative use of a reflection that continues the story for the viewer.  without the reflection of her sweet face, we would have an incomplete story because only a sliver of her head is visible within the frame.  by adding this simple reflection, the viewer instantly knows what my husband is doing and who he is interacting with.

photographing my everyday is one of my passions.  to inspire your everyday photography, be sure to read the everyday photograph.
