A Formal Pattern

| No Comments


This pattern is from the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia; it will be my entry in the category "Reflections" at camera club tomorrow night. [It was put in first place by the judge.] I think this has lots of "formality." It is also interesting seen on end, with the left side down. I might add to that and make something new and interesting later. In case you might wonder, this is an actual image - the only Photoshop changes involved removing a truck in the distance and a couple of blurry birds.

I'm riding in a boat in the Omo River, Ethiopia, and it's bright outside. This is Joe's sunglass lens, reflecting me, the boat, the wake amd the shoreline.

Hyperspace Reflections - No Horizon!

The reflections at the Bolivian Uyuni salt flat are quite dramatic when spring rains fill the vast salt flat. In fact, you might think that we're in hyperspace! This image shows Joe van Os, whose organization (photosafaris.com) has provided me many travel and photography opportunities since 1996.
