Learning to see: Reflections Are Everywhere

Often when I have run out of ideas when photographing a given location, I switch gears and look for unusual reflections. Sometimes I frame the shot so that it shows both the original subject and the reflection in the frame. But, most frequently, I frame just the reflection. Perhaps the viewer will be perplexed—unsure of what he/she is looking at. The longer they look at the photograph the better the value of the image.
