  • Lost in LaRue - September 7, 2016

    Rainy days are for reflections. Literally. I love reflection in photography. After a rainstorm I find myself looking at puddles to see what the view is looking at the world backwards and upside down. A while back I saw a photograph on the cover of an album that really caught my attention. Granted it was much edgier than mine because the guy was wearing jeans and boots, not fancy duck flats and Capri pants. But nonetheless, I’ve wanted to try to take a reflective photo and when I spotted a rather large puddle on Brooks Road I figured I’d give it a try.
