Reflections

The confusion of reflections.

This image was not planned, I just happened to see an interesting scene one summers night when taking a walk through Deauville in Northern France. Shooting through glass can be both problematic and rewarding. It can be very difficult to arrange or plan where your reflections will appear but the rewards are the ambiguity and confusion it can give the viewer. To my mind these type images usually appear better in colour rather than monochrome. The other consideration is the speed of your composition especially if people are involved in the shot. Take too long and it can make people feel uncomfortable. As in a lot of street photography going unnoticed is generally preferable.
