I did have an idea at to begin with to this challenge, yesterday I was given too many options. If you have read or seen any of my posts you will know, well, I have a dilemma . Drove to Helsinki to check out the beautiful city library, the whole square where it is located is full of reflection opportunities.
Light. That’s the medium photographers create their art with. We usually play with light and shadows but this week we’re going to try something often overlooked – Reflections. Boost your photo’s aesthetic by using reflections – add more depth and complexity with this aspect of photography and see the world in a whole new way.
The first shot is not from there but from my office window as I thought it came out rather nicely.
Be creative and think of using symmetry with mirrors or tangentially, go beyond the literal. Visualize your composition, be patient and don’t hesitate to try new stuff out to get a great shot.
Take time to observe your surroundings for cool opportunities out there or feel free to make your own indoors. Just ask yourself: “What is the light doing here ?”
Oodi is a striking building with its glass and steel structures and wooden façade, its design a combination of traditional and contemporary flavours. The energy-efficient library is an impressive calling card for Finnish architecture.
Below are reflections on the Music Hall in Helsinki

Great collection, Ritva. I have three favorites … the header, view from your office, and the round one. Beautifully captured and thanks for starting me day with a smile. Have a good rest of your Sunday.
Thanks for letting me know about the smile Frank, great choices those are the ones I was thinking about too, I chose the header…music and dance on the walls of the music hall 🙂
Awesome reflections, you where on the right places and had the right eyes to see them !
It is a great place for them, too much for to capture at once. I was a pretty day, but the wind was cold so I didn’t stay as long as I wanted to
