Reflections

Not a double exposure shot - I loved this shot from our hotel room

As the wife & I sat in our free hotel room at Mystic Lake Casino Sunday afternoon I was taking pictures of the outside sunshine etc. Now I was holding the camera against the glass most times. Once I didn't. Now this looks like a double exposure but it is just the reflection of the room in the window as I snapped the shot. I thinks it's awesome looking. So have you ever gotten a shot that appears a double exposure? Have you ever tried this type of shot intentionally? I tried a few more shots like this and none turned out this good looking. Thanks I just wanted to share this here. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

This picture is so cool - I've never done anything like this but now I want to run out and try it. I love taking photos but afraid I haven't taken it seriously enough to actually devote time to trying different things - I need to do that.

Well, you really got me going - nearly every day I've had my camera out trying to find some really cool shot it's just not happening oI I just don't have the eye you do. Oh well that's the great thing about digital - snap the shot and if it isn't any good just delete it and take more. We're getting fresh snow now so I'm hoping to get something from that - when I get around and get outside that is.

Hello dear Grandpa Bob. I have enjoyed each of the photo that you have taken for us to share. You are really very good at taking photos. I also love to take photos to take some shots that attracts me. Happy responding to Grandpa Bob's discussion.

that is an interestingn shot. i don't think it really appears as a double exposure since it's reflected from the sliding glass right? my friend did one of reflected rain drops. somehow his camera was able to capture the reflections of blocks of flats opposite in each individual rain drop on the window pane. it was very quirky and very beautiful. sometimes holding the camera against the glass without flash gives good pictures. i used to do that with my photos from the coach whilst on holiday. there was so much gorgeous scenary and the coach didn't always stop for us to snap away!

Yeah it is just the reflection of the room on the window. I got other shots from the smae area but at a different angle. it was the lamp shining that made it reflect like this. Thanks again. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

This is an unusual & effective shot. I don t usually get accidental photos like that. Any accidental photos I take usually turn out silly. I used to take good scenery photos.

That's a pretty neat looking picture. I don't think I've ever taken any pictures like that before that I can remember.

Hi Grandpa Bob, This is a very interesting photo. I'm not much of a photographer myself, but my daughter loves it. She's going to be taking photography for the second year in a row, starting next week.

Thanks for sharing yet another unique picture that you have taken. I bet you are glad that it is a digital camera, so you can take as many shots of something until you can achieve the shot you like, without costing bundles to have them developed, and also know what you have as soon as you shoot it as opposed to waiting...

I probably have some in my photos but none I did on purpose. So did you miss your calling to be a photographer?
