Shades of Me



Sitting on the grass watching the clouds go by one day, I realized I had my camera with me and I should take some pictures. I took off my shades and jabbed them into the ground, and began to paw through my backpack, pondering how I could best capture the texture of the clouds. Will the sky be too bright? What could I use in the foreground to give interest to the picture? Hmmm, decisions decisions. Ah, there's that camera. *starts unzipping the case*

As I turn my head, my eye catches light reflected from the glasses. I look more carefully, and I gasp! There are those lovely clouds I was admiring, reflected and dimmed just enough for me to take their picture!! I lean forward, examining different angles that I can shoot... and I see my own reflection. Well, that was it, that totally geeked me out -- I instantly started having visions of using the picture as an avatar on the many places I have an online presence. Like here...

And so I now cheerfully present the whole image, framed exactly the way I originally intended it to be. Ta-daahh!!

This is a wonderful shot, ~Qrystal! I love the angle, the clouds and that you're barely visible. Kinda like a shadow. Great reflection and idea! :XD:
