Thematic Photographic

At Carmi's this week, his theme for photographs is GLASS...here is my contribution:


I took this picture at the Truman Museum/Library in Independence, MO. There is a beautiful garden, and this is an "eternal flame" burning for Harry S. Truman. I took pictures of the flame from the inside, through the glass, but I really liked the composition with the rest of the museum reflected in the glass...see if you can actually find ME in the shot!

I see you, I see you -- what do I win?

Nice shot :)

Barbara said...

That's funny. Kinda like a "Where's Waldo" thing. Are you wearing a red and white striped shirt?

Heidi said...

Nice capture youself! (I found you, too! Took a little bit...)

Heidi said...

Ooops!!! That is supposed to be "yourself" not "youself."

Have a great rest of your week!

I'm going to guess that you're in the middle of the image, right where that tree is. I'm probably wrong, which makes me a big optical goat.

I gotta say I love the dimensionality of this shot. It conveys the curvature of the structure within the rectangular frame of the window. Beyond cool!

Thanks so much for joining in, Linda. I feel like the snowball is starting to gather a little momentum. Neat!

I think that you're near the reflection of the third winow from the right!!! Is that you I can see just to the right of the flame?

Thanks for stopping by burntofferings and making a comment, hope to see you again sometime!

Beautiful shot! The mirroring property of glass makes for fun photos.

Mojo said...

Mathematically, I'd guess you were the one standing slightly uphill, between Harry S. and the flag pole.

Cool shot either way!

I see you, too! I'm not just guessing, either. I can tell that's definitely you because you're holding the camera up to your face. I recognize the pose in my own (unintended) reflections. *chuckle* Fun photo!

I'm up, too!
