FRAMES: Photo Challenge #75: Reflections
It’s been a few years since we did this challenge so we are
going to give it another go.
Mirrors aren’t the only place you can find reflections, there
are reflections in puddles, panes of glass, shiny table surfaces,
So your challenge, if you choose to accept it of course, is to
show me your best shot utilizing a reflection. You choose the
subject and the reflective surface.
You can email your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the
handy Upload Photo Challenge Pix
link at the right side of this page. Please make sure your real
life name is somewhere in the upload fields or in your email to
Remember, I ENCOURAGE you to shoot the photo in
the week that the challenge is assigned but of course will
begrudgingly accept photos taken earlier this year.
Deadline for photos will be April 7th.
Those chosen as “Stand-outs” will be published in the Kitsap
Sun on the following Sunday.
Here are a few photographs utilizing
reflections from our archives to get you

***To recap: Every month I will post a new photography
“challenge” to help build on all of our current photography skills
and to encourage everyone to get out and get shooting (cameras not
guns). While I encourage you to shoot the
challenge in the week that it is assigned, I will however accept
entries taken prior to the challenge assignment date.
When you’ve got your favorite shot, login to the Kitsap Sun Your
Media Site (if you don’t already have a login, you can quickly
set it one up) or click the “Kitsap Frames Photo Challenge Entries”
button over there on the right side of the page and upload your
image to the Kitsap
Frames Photo Challenge Channel (the channels run along the left
hand side of the page, again if you can’t seem to get it into the
channel just upload it normally and send me an email and I’ll move
