Reflections | Anita
There are days when I’d rather be anywhere but wherever I am; but mostly, I’d rather be in the calming company of Nature..



Like most people, I’m not a fan of pigeons. But when I see them strutting around with their mildly colored plumage, and light reflecting off of it here and there, my attitude softens. Then I realize they’re just outside my window, probably deciding on the best place to unload, and my urge to shoo them away returns…

Magic mirror?

Magic mirror?
Is the magic in the mirror or in the photography? 😉

Fun with a compact mirror, for Dailypost’s weekly photo challenge: Mirror.


One of those rare times when I actually like the result of photographing light reflected on a wall. 😉 The reflection is from a container of distress inks that my sister uses in her card-making.

The Lake

This lake just outside the Preah Khan temple at Cambodia. It was the middle of morning when we passed beside it, but then, I was playing with the colors in the picture later, and I absolutely loved it when I tinted the blue with yellow. This golden sky makes my heart soar with joy in a way that the original blue sky wasn’t able to, and I just don’t feel any shame or guilt for tampering with the colors so! 🙂

For SL-Week: Reflection, and Weekly Photo Challenge: Jubilant.


Another beautiful sight of reflected greenery on the backwaters of Kerala. I love this higher-contrast, vignetted, monochrome version of the photograph, so it goes as a submission to this week’s Monochrome Madness. (Yes, I remembered to send my submission to Leanne this week! 😀 )


ReflectionsClicked using a phone camera app outside a restaurant on a sunny, windy day. The faraway lines of buildings that get reflected here weren’t click-worthy at all, but I thought the waves and ripples on the water made all reflections featureless yet interesting. 🙂

I applied a light touch of painterly effect with another app to get this final picture. (The results of painterly effects make me sigh, wishing I could paint like that, but I then console myself since I can at least apply painterly effects using these apps.)
