The art of learning

This is one of the pictures that I think marks another phase of my quest of learning photography, going beyond using my equipment for anything too fancy, but going back to the most basic to look at what I'm really shooting and find the "interestingness" within. This is also the shot that triggered my "Let there be Colors!" set which is one of my current growing collections.

 

The reflection in the mirrors gives away the fact that this is really not a Photoshop job, but rather what caught my eye just driving by on my way back home from work. I'm happy with the simple geometries, colors, and the surprisingly pretty glint and reflections off the mirror; and after a few tries of cropping this differently, here it is. I'm happy to see myself learning and improving, and this is what keeps me motivated. :-)
