Refracted Beauty 10/52

March 11, 2012

Week # 10 = Reflections

 

For this week's theme I wanted to challenge myself again. I was always mystified by these beautiful photos on Flickr of flowers and objects reflected into waterdrops. A perfect concept for this week! What I learned however, is that the image is not a reflection but a refracted image. The waterdrop actually acts like a lens.

 

Anyway, I had to try to it and with such a busy week I finally got a chance to today. So, I went out and bought myself a beautiful bouquet of flowers and set to work at achieving one of these mystifying images.
