Weekend Reflections: A Hot Photographer


 
So, what happened here?  I shot through a window into a bistro with a blazing oven.  The flame is all that can be seen from inside.  The rest is reflected back from the window.

This captures your mood quite well. My favorite shot of myself reflected in a window was from the terrace of the resort in Papeete, Tahiti, with the window making the sea and skies of the South Pacific an even deeper blue, and the island of Moorea in the distance. A very different scene than you blazing oven on a hot summer day.

Too cool, Jack! Well, not really 'cause you're cool. So I'll say the truth--this photo is awesome! Like you.

Sharon said...

Great shot! You couldn't have planned this one any better.

Sometimes our photos don't work out as planned. This one still has a neat effect. Thanks for the comments, things are winding down a bit.

Very cool! What a hot-shot you are!

cieldequimper said...

Excellent! I'll have to play copycat some day! :-)

EG Wow said...

Haha! I'm laughing at RedPat's "hot-shot" remark. I was going to say you look like hot stuff but I didn't want you to take that the wrong way so remember - you did NOT read that here. :)

Japy said...

Great self portrait. Greetings.

Dianne said...

Clever shot - hot mouth!

Cildemer said...

Nita Davis said...

Fantastic reflection, it sure has me looking over and over to figure out what conditions existed and what techniques would need to be used to produce such a shot. You are one hot shot photographer :D

Nice snap but who is the smart, handsome photographer?

What a neat shot! This would have been fun to try to guess what the oven was. :)

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Thank goodness you explained what happened. I was having thoughts of an incendiary Darth Vader.

Great shot Jack. The fun factor makes it even more so.
