In and out – Carrer Badajoz

If you have been following this blog for some time, you will know that I like reflections. And I like them even more, when they create optical illusions, such as the ones I have in store for you today!

Seeing double – Carrer Ciutat de Granada

Pretty amazing how shifting your focus on the same buildings I showed you in last Friday’s post, you can see such very different things. Which do you prefer, the corners, or the illusions?

Dotty at Media-TIC – Carrer Sancho d’Àvila

Shadows and light and the effects they have on their surroundings fascinate me, and I generally look around me for their projections. As today is Halloween, I thought it appropriate to share a few new ones with you that I found recently.

Happy Monday and Happy New Year! Did you have a nice time over the holidays? And did you reflect on how you want the new year to be? I was actually quite busy, and didn’t have the time to do so, so I thought we’d kick off the year with some reflective images, so we can ease into the week and into this newly arrived year (always exciting, to start a new year, don’t you think?)… enjoy!

Passeig de Joan de Borbò

I don’t know about you, but I am always drawn to reflections for some reason. (Must be my inner magpie!) Or in any case, I always seem to spot them. With Barcelona being such a beautiful place, the reflections here can offer some stunning, or at least interesting, images, and today I have selected a few to show you…

Avinguda Príncep d’Astúries

These past few days, I’ve caught myself in a reflective mood, so I thought it would be fitting to wrap the week up (a day late, sorry for that) with images of reflections.
