Welcome Jez, our guest host this week – and the theme is all about reflections. Please go to his site for marvelous inspiration – and Lensy of course…
The first thing I thought about, was reflections from the Amazon basin. Our canoeing through the djungle every day, searching for anacondas, cajmans, lizards, sloths, monkeys and birds. The silence and the dense forest with all its sounds (!) was an unforgettable experience.
Autumn in Sweden also makes for canoeing and colourful experiences. Sometimes so intense for short glimpses, that you just have to photograph it even if you don’t have a managable angle. Incredible light.
Then again, days of mist make beautiful, dreamy images. I used to pass this old mill every day on my way to work – but often I stopped to walk for some minutes, contemplating the beauty of this worn building. I know she is an old lady, ageing beautifully and admiring her reflection in the water.
Art is of course a great possibility for seeing double – a contemplating man and…
Yayoi Kusama in Denmark
More of Denmark – a new complex built with different reflections…even the sky fits in.
Seeing double is all about reflections – easily made into a photographic obsession. Jez wants any reflections we come across; landscapes, cityscapes or chance ones in a puddle. We are looking forward to seeing all your entries!
Last week’s responses to Aletta, Now At Home, with her challenge of Treasures, were fantastic. So many amazing and varied examples. Next week it’ll be Andre of My Blog–Solaner, thinking about Summer Vibes, so make sure you get over to his site for inpiration.
The rest of July:
July 23 – Tracy, who posts at Reflections of an Untidy Mind, has chosen Surrealism.
July 30 – Sarah Wilkie, who hosts Travel with Me, asks you to share Three Favorite Images.
A new challenge prompt is posted each Saturday at noon EST. If you’re new to the challenge, click here for more info.
Please link to the original post and use the Lens-Artists tag. And, as always – stay safe and kind.

Great great reflections. Canoeing the Amazon?! WOOF! 😱
❤💛💛💛💚 I’d love to do it again!
So many good shots for this challenge!! I especially like the one of the man and the one underneath. Thanks for inspiring me. I’m going to look through my photos as well.
Thank you so much – good to be inspirational!
Too tired tonight to comment properly but I enjoyed- especially autumn colour and Kusama.
❤Hope you are OK!
Yes, no worries! I didn’t mean to cause alarm. It’s been hot and I’d had a rather active few days. Quieter now.
I’m in awe…. I enjoyed all of these images, difficult to choose my favorite. These art art works!
Amy, thank you! You are too kind!
What can I say? lovely as your photos Leya. I always look forward seeing your posts because they are wonderful and full of meaning. This one is a reflection of you. Greatly done…
Thank you for a completely wonderful comment!
You are the master of the reflection. Divine photos
Thank you for a divine comment!
So nice and the Mirror fun on your birthday was my fav
Ha, thank you – yes those mirrors were very cleverly set there…
I also put my hand up for the old mill in the beautiful autumnal Swedish setting . . . but have to admit to a big smile seeing you SO seriously setting up your camera . . .
Wow, these are super awesome photos!!
Love the dash of red car in that convoluted reflection of Spain, and also the waterlily as it took me a long time to figure out what I was looking at.
Thank you – and that waterlily is very special . An optical illusion.
Interesting mirror reflection.
Some intelligent brain behind proper angles of the mirrors.
Lovely collection for this theme.
Thank you, philo. Yes, smart mirrors, great fun.
These are all beautiful a/o fun, A-C. The mill shot and the one below it are my favorites. I wish I’d thought of using the Yayoi Kusama shot I had. But seeing double isn’t just about reflections, even though that’s what comes to mind first.
Thank you – yes, seeing double has many interpretations!
So many wonderful photos but I do have a favourite, the old mill but it is hard to find a favourite. I love the selfies too of course 🙂 🙂
Brian, thank you. I miss that mill, and someday I have to visit again.
Fascinating photos Ann Christine!
Glad you liked them, Anne. I had fun putting them together!
Beautiful reflections Ann-Christine! I especially like the building with all the reflections including the red car on the bridge.
Thank you, it is not often I come across that kind of distortion.
Thank you, Beth!
These are so lovely. I particularly like the Swedish autumn image
I am glad you like that one – the light and colours where overwhelming. And again I marvelled at the difference when the sun doesn’t shine.
I so adore your selfie. You have selected some marvelous doubles for this week 😀
Thank you, Cee! Those mirrors were cleverly set!
I am so sorry Ann-Christine, that I cannot single out any of your images. From start to finish they are extraordinary. Honestly, this week you have outdone yourself – and that is REALLY saying something!
Wow, thank you Tina! Happy you liked them!
Excellent post, Ann-Christine, showing all the versatility of your photography. I love the setting for the mill, and being confused by Kusuma’s work!
Thank you, Sofia! I really have to see that old mill again…
Beautiful post, Ann-Christine 👏 I was completely mesmerised with the first shot with the lantern, as well as with the multi-faceted reflection in Spain & your mirror fun 😃 The winner for me was the old mill, resting quietly by the mill pond; I can see why you would spend so much time in such a peaceful setting 😁 Thanks for the opportunity of hosting & joining the fun 😊
Thank You, Jez, for a lovely challenge!
You’re very welcome 😊
These are marvellous – and some of them are such fun as well. I sort of recognise that scene in Spain. Can you remember where you were? And that Yayoi Kusama image is fabulous – it messes with your mind.
Thank you, Margaret! I am quite sure it was in Bilbao, not far away from the Guggenheim.
I OUGHT to have recognised it then..
I find it difficult with years and places nowadays…
Join the club!
Some great reflections…. The old mill is the star for me!
For me as well!
Ah, good to hear!
Ann-Christine your photos are gorgeous! Th like mirror reflections a lot! Hope you had a great birtday too! Thank you for your kind words, I really enjoyed the challenge a lot!
