Picture Perfect: REFLECTIONS

Reflections

This photo of mine fits the bill for reflections, methinks, with these moody, sentimental, reflections on the river…

”Look for Interesting Reflections and Shadows Reflections and shadows lend a touch of artistry to an otherwise plain picture. They can provide meaningful contrasts (such as an old building reflected in a modern high rise) or depth (such as the shadow of trees along a wooded path).” How to take better pictures site online.

Here is the bonus with the SUPREMES “REFLECTIONS” released in 1967. “Reflections” made it to #2 on both the Billboard Pop Singles charts and Cashbox during the summer of 1967. In 1987, the TV series China Beach used “Reflections” as its theme, and included the track on its soundtrack album. The song was the namesake for the 2004 musical Reflections.
