Christmas Photo Journey // Day Eight: Reflecting on the Season

Photo prompt from Paper Coterie:

Reflecting on the Season:
Reflective surfaces can be creative muses in your photography. There is no way of knowing exactly how the reflection will translate. That's what makes it so much fun!

Have you ever looked into a mirror as a means to see things a little differently? Look around and see how unique the world around you can look in reflections. Mirrors, glass, metallic surfaces all offer us opportunities to see and shoot with a unique and often unexpected perspective.

Shoot something in a reflective surface today and see what you find. It could be you looking back at you, or it could be some other kind of seasonal magic. It's all in how you look at it.

Some of my favorite things about Christmas are the colors, the lights, the shiny and bright....reflections of the abundant joy during this beautiful season!
