Royal Ontario Museum- Reflections


Reflections are fascinating to me and I look for them wherever I go. I am amazed how many different and unexpected surfaces reflect in such interesting ways. This image was made at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada. I was photographing the architecture of the building when I noticed a smooth stone bench in front. Crouching down low and moving side to side while tipping the camera forward and back, I was able to see unlimited patterns of the building's angles reflected in the polished bench. I set my canon 1D Mark IIN equipped with my 16-35mm lens at 16 mm to take in the entire scene of reflected patterns. I was busily making images of the interesting patterns I had discovered when I saw a mother and her daughter in brightly colored jackets exiting the museum. I changed the position of my camera and waited until they entered an optimal place in the frame and pressed the shutter. Their presence in the frame added color and interest to the scene and turned out to be one of my favorite shots from my vantage point.
