“There is one art of which man should be master, the art of reflection.” ― Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“Without reflection, photography literally wouldn’t be possible. Without spiritual reflection, photography wouldn’t be meaningful. May the art you create bring you greater awareness, greater light!” I wrote that on my blog of December 22, 2018 in response to Patti’s Lens-Artist challenge that week.
In my March 7, 2020 blog post, I reflected on the changes I had been through during my cross-country pandemic move. I wrote, “Writing in this blog, storing photographs and memories, was a way to plant the seeds of realization. In my words and pictures, I remind myself who I truly am and see who I am becoming.”
This morning, it is Jez who invites the hunt for reflections with an amazing collection of great photo examples. Visit his post HERE.
The opportunity to see double – to revisit, to reflect, to look again from a new perspective – is a great gift. It often reveals treasures overlooked, depth unfathomed. It’s a practice worth repeating, regularly or periodically. New light can emerge from shadows, reflected from sources once obscured.
“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ― Søren Kierkegaard
Excellent response Priscilla! Reflecting on past reflections. I truly enjoyed having the opportunity to see these posts.
Thanks, Anne. Yes, reflection can go way back and in many directions. 😉
Beautiful choices this week Priscilla. The mirror image is especially creative, and I loved your autumn foliage reflection
Thanks, Tina. You have so many reflective bits of water around you that I knew you’d have some brilliant shots to share…and I was right! 🙂
I like all images and esp that one of you (I assume) with the dresses
And such wise quotes on reflection
Yes, that’s me. 🙂 Thanks!
Priscilla, it seems to me that your images and words get ever stronger. So very engaging!
Thank you, Michael. That means a lot to me, coming from you. 🙂
Beautifully expressed! Remarkable reflection images, Priscilla.
You are correct. It is good to reflect on our past. Photography helps us do just that!
Such beautiful pictures, Priscilla, with your thoughtful words and quotes to accompany them!
I love that final quote.
Yes, very true.
