Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Photography by Notes Of Light, AtlantaTaking an photo from a previous post, I turned it upside down, did a little editing, and now submit it for the weekly photo challenge for the theme of reflection. Now I see the image in a brand new way, heavy with symbolism, while before it had been more of a conceptual piece.

Besides having an M.C. Escher quality, to me the photograph is a reminder that man’s quest through life is not only a physical one, but also a spiritual one, as well.

With the normal image having been flipped vertically, the figure’s reflection becomes more prominent over the actual physical figure. A figure can’t exist without a producing a reflection, and a reflection can’t exist without a physical figure; although the figures are inherently the same, now the emphasis has been shifted in our minds to put the reflection foremost.
