On the Road: Again

I took this photograph on the same soggy day as yesterday’s image but went out later in the afternoon after the rain had stopped.

There were lots of puddles of different sizes but the reflection in this one really caught my eye. Dried Nigella flower capsules and a lime-washed wall are reflected on a road. I like the textured metallic feel to it. I rotated the image 180 degrees and cropped it quite a bit in order to focus on the ‘metallic’ strip.

    • Thank you Littleskew. There is a painted feel to it isn’t there? It also reminded me of a type of tarnished metal. I find it fascinating how the lime-washed wall looked so different in the reflection.

    • Thank you cocomino! The effects do look like those of a painting I think. Yes – lime-washed walls tend to change colour and texture depending on the weather. They are pretty durable.

    • Thank you CV! I find it so fascinating that reflections can create such interesting effects. The wall looked so different reflected in that puddle and the Nigella capsules made interesting shadows.
