Picture Inspiration 7/52

The Shape of Surprise

Continuing in our study of reflected objects, but this time without the actual object for context...

When I'm home, I plug my laptop into a docking station.  Which powers a separate keyboard, monitor, and trackball mouse. Which makes it much easier for me to work.

My laptop has a very reflective surface (it's a pain in the butt because it shows fingerprints all the time!)

I noticed this reflection one day as I was pondering week 7's prompt.  The laptop had captured a bit of my monitor and the bulletin board on the wall above it.  Of course, it's upside down...

 Here's the same shot but in tighter - the only context left now is the table the laptop is sitting on.
And if I flip the lid open, I can get a nice view of my work arena.  Our living room/dining room turned into studio/office.  Even seeing this awkward view (remember it's reversed because it is a mirror image) reminds me how much I love this space in my home.

Great captures for this prompt! I ended up setting one up because I never found a good one.

Mine's reflective too but there is no way I could take a picture like this until it had a good going over with some polish - I've just checked :0)

Cool shots Cheri. I haven't shared many of my PI photos but I'm enjoying the prompts. Maybe an upcoming blog post :)

Have a great weekend.
