Reflections – the Pictures from Wonderland

The first glass mirrors appeared at the very dawn of the Christian Era. However, people noticed the ability of some particular objects, such as polished stones or metal plates, to reflect other objects many and many thousands years ago. However, perhaps, the earliest mirrors known to people were those, created by Nature. The reflections, appearing on the water surfaces of the lakes and rivers have always attracted people’s attention, forming really exciting visual effects and creating some kind of a fine verge between a real world and its reflection.

The same masterpieces of reflection art can be found on the wet pavement of a busy night city or on the beach sand right after a wave moves back to the ocean. Actually, even a rain drop can reflect a huge universe around, when captured by a skillful photographer with a creative vision. We have collected some prominent examples of digital photography, illustrating reflection in its multiple forms and appearances.  Visual effects, resulting from such reflection, really surprise and astonish and so does the variety of emotions and feelings, expressed by such reflections. Though the reflection object is nothing but a mirrored image of the live object, it often feels like the whole landscape and scenery changes or modifies with the presence of reflection. What is this? The fanciful yet true art of the Mother Nature or, maybe, it is just another evidence, proving the boundless capabilities of our own imagination?

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
