Gneisenaustr 51 - Südstern U-Bahn

 

A photo group I belong to had challenged its members to come up with an image under the subject heading "Reflection" for an exhibition at a gallery.

 

Unfortunately it became evident quickly that I don't really function well under subject stress when I could think of nothing interesting to take. Throughout the month I agonized about it, took shots which I didn't like, asked friends for ideas, even began wondering if I should break the rules and go back into my archives for a goodie.

 

This picture was taken as No and I made our way to the Siegessäule Fanmeile to watch the Germany / England game in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. She has a panama hat with a lei wrapped around it, I'm wearing a lei around my neck. We're sitting on the S-Bahn (public transport train) somewhere between Westkreuz and Tiergarten. The sun is behind us, and we are seeing ourselves reflected in the window in front of us. No casually says, "There is your reflection shot". I pulled the camera out of it's case and seconds later, caught this.

 

It isn't my best work, but I like it.

The rainbow behind No is an interesting artifact. We have no idea what it is... advertising behind us, light playing on the glass... who knows.
