    Today's assignment 1 of 2. Find a reflection to simulate a fisheye or Ultra wide angle without using one. I am into reflections so the challenge is natural. John Hedgecoe.

    1. Wait a minute, I have lost weight.

    I like 'Me' best. So, why B&W? I would think color would add quite a bit of content.

    Cause the porcelain was blue, they looked like cyanotypes, that my next project, not this one. Lol

    Correction, my current and ongoing project. Been at it for 3 weeks.

    To my eye, the color adds more success to the photos.

    I prefer the second shot to the others. Normally, I would expect color to add information, but in the case of the blue--the color does not help. This is part of the reason I've been recommending the John Hedgeco photography books for so long: they are simply filled with good photography improvement/exploration/experimentation assignments and exercises!

    After seeing your subway (?) reflections in mirrors, I shot a mother and child mirror shot last weekend in the small, old town of Astoria, Oregon.
