REFLECTION

Moon glow
Comes from sun glow:
Burning orb of daylight
Shines covertly on reflector
At night.

Moonbeams
Come from sunbeams
Stretching, reaching to touch
Reflecting face of ev’ning moon:
Night light.

Daily Post Prompt: Successful

I decided to respond to today’s prompt with a picture. It’s one of the most “successful” pieces of photographic art I’ve seen in many years. And, of course, it’s from my wonderful photographer/artist friend, Terry Valley.

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 11

A little different view on this week’s window:   A few months ago, I did an experiment, which included trying to take a picture of the moon through my living room window.  I knew it would probably not take very well, but I did not realize just what kind of product I would end up with.

 In this photo, you can see through my window, with a fairly good view of the two house right across the street, the trees, and the moon.  But you also see the clear reflection of two of my living room walls, the picture hanging on one of them,  the doorway into my kitchen, a row of books on the top of a bookcase on the left side of that doorway, a box sitting on a shelf on the opposite side of that same doorway, part of my ceiling, and the pull knob of my ceiling fan.  

I could not believe how clearly all of those things — which are spread across two opposite sides of my living room — as well as on the ceiling — could show up in the same picture — particularly since I was focusing away from all of them. I thought you might find it interesting too. There’s just no end to what one can see through a window, is there? 

Don’t forget to leave the links to your windows pictures.
