Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

It seems only a short while ago that there was a Weekly Photo Challenge with Reflections as the prompt, so I will try to choose different photos for this.  And I do have some reflections that aren’t all Hyde Park which is sadly not very photogenic at the moment as the works renovating the islands and the ponds continue.

So, it is all geometrical shapes and mirrors for this Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections.

Buildings reflecting morning light:

This old building – the Battye Library – is reflecting morning light bouncing off the glass of this neighbouring Alexander Library.


Reflected morning brilliance bouncing off glass and steel


then there are windows reflecting buildings and the skies beyond:


Or simply other buildings:

the infinity of reflections in an arcade so new there is almost nothing in it:


The chaos of windows reflecting into windows… or life behind and beyond the windows making a mockery of physical borders and boundaries and existence:

Windows reflecting sunset, looking into other worlds:

buildings reflecting the bright light of sunset:


And this: a pelican sailing on its own reflection, itself mirrored into the sandy floor of the preternaturally still Swan River that itself reflection the unseen sky.


I had more photos than I expected 🙂  I hope you enjoyed these sometimes experimental attempts at interpreting this week’s theme.

    Great photos, capturing that brittle start-of-day feel. I know that empty arcade (in Hay St – it used to be a cinema complex) and you’ve captured its eerie quality really well.


    • Yes – the old Cinema City & Cine Centre. It is a weird place, but a good shortcut to the afternoon bus from PICE in Murray Street! Glad you liked the pics 🙂 & thank you 🙂

    Thanks for the trackback 🙂 my faves among your photos…definitely the windows (since I have a thing for them lol!) and the swan – beautiful in its simplicity.

    You want to tell me you have no reflections of trees.?????? I don’t believe it…..lol


    • sadly – not recent ones. All those I have will have probably been included in other posts. And the park is not very photogenic at the moment. One island is stripped bare (no more bottlebrush flowering in teh Spring – very sad) and many of the branches that hung low enough to have reflections were lopped. Mostly the refelctions now are of fences blocking paths and the the strunks of graceful trees. Just as well I have no time for walking at the moment. It is heartbreaking.


  13. Now that’s different, Keira – and very dramatic.
