Reflections, Bristol Harbour 25/13/12

I feel Christmas day is one day of the year were things stop and all is silent, like the reality of daily life is put on hold. Well I think it felt more like that last year because today it was surprisingly quite busy.

Anyway I had the opportunity to take some pictures, there was still some stillness left in the air. However instead of pointing the camera directly at the subjects I was looking at I decided instead to photograph reflections on windows. I had tested this out briefly before which I then uploaded to my blog and so today I wanted to just solely focus on that aspect. By taking pictures using this method I feel I have captured an alternative view of the built environment around me. In some cases subjects seem layered or reversed even quite blurred, dream like in some way. In addition this time round I have included people in among some of these built spaces. I find when people are present the spaces seem more physical as these people are in their own way interacting within that environment. It can also speak of a moment captured in time, traces of that moment, reflections of the past or of what is to come.
