Mirrors and Reflections

On the Bus, Beograd, Serbia, 29-May-2007

This was taken more than six years ago in Belgrade. I love the woman’s melancholy gaze breaking through the reflection of the clouds. It’s one of my all-time favorite shots, captured spontaneously while waiting for a red light to turn green.

Mirrors –and the reflections associated with them– is this week’s #frifotos theme on twitter. Here are a dozen from those snapped over the past six years culled from my flickr stream, which I’m now starting to use again more regularly.

You got a favorite?

And finally, ending almost in the same position with which we started. This is on the Cisalpino (CIS) 37, from Lausanne to Milano, 11-Jul 2007. She didn’t know I was taking her picture. I hope she’s doing well.

    All of these photos are good, but the first one is stunning. The eye contact and the yellow stripes makes it stand out 🙂 . The ambulance photo is also excellent. (I would actually like to see only the yellow photos in one post, I think that when you mix all those different reflections, one may lose attention.)
