There`s a double beauty whenever a swan
Swims on a lake with her double thereonThomas Hood
There is something about a reflection that draws us as photographers. Is it the illusion of seeing double? Or the fact that we can capture double the beauty?
Terri has challenged us to find ‘Double the delights’ for this week’s Sunday Stills challenge. She’s looking for any photos of ‘twos’ and my first thought was couples. But as I quite recently shared pairs of people for a One Word Sunday challenge on this theme, this time I’m focusing purely on reflections as a literal interpretation of ‘seeing double’. Most are of birds, boats and buildings, with a bridge and statue thrown in.
And as Marsha’s Wednesday Quotes this week is a free choice I’m linking to that too. After all, what better theme could there be for a dose of double-dipping?!
