playing with light

This morning I was taking pictures of a framed mirror for Macro Mondays, a group I am a member of on flickr. DD brought in the hand mirror from the bathroom and discovered how much fun it was to play with mirrors and the sunshine coming through the east window.

By shining the light through the chandelier prisms, DD made rainbows and shimmering light on the ceiling.

She even used the big mirror I was photographing.

Then she discovered the “well” in the mirror…that upside-down space that makes you feel as though you might fall in. And with our 12′ ceilings, that was a deep well!

After she played with the mirror for a while, she sat back to chat. I was able to catch some relaxed shots of her with the great play of light from the window.

Three in one…

It was a spontaneous opportunity and I was glad for the chance to get some unusual pictures.

    And it wasn’t even posed. I was just snapping pics as she played with the mirrors. Thanks for all your kind comments! ~~Rhonda 🙂

    Wow! Those are beautiful. I never seem to have my camera in “magical” moments like those. I always wish I had it. Very nice pictures.
