Piedmont Park: Aviators and iPhones

A Piedmont Road Drive By Shot. Polly Nance. Digital photograph. 8 x 10 inches.

These photographs were taken on the same day as my previous post at Piedmont Park.  I am still mesmerized and obsessed with reflections because I love finding views I wouldn’t normally observe.  These were reflections I found in our car’s rearview mirror, my iPhone and my aviators.  I chose to render some of these in black and white and some of these in color, depending on what I thought would best enhance each composition.  Ricky was practicing disc golf at the softball fields, where the terrain  was wide open and flat, so there was little to photograph beyond my husband.  I grabbed my camera and started shooting my face once again… similar to my other spontaneous blog idea for a post, which most of you have already seen, but in case you haven’t you can click here and view my post: Every Shade Tells a Story.  I don’t know how I have lived in this same city for so long and not been to Piedmont Park more!  It is a gem in the city and I need to return more often.  I hope you enjoy these photographs… to me, reflections add another dimension to my work… they add a layer… almost like collage-work or poetry… The different fragments and parts make up a greater whole and, therefore, a greater meaning.  I’m still trying to find a way to delve conceptually deeper in my photography… and this is one of those techniques that seems to aid me in this regard.  Through reflections, I feel as if I get to know how a camera operates… if that makes any sense. 🙂 Take a look at the world that surrounded me one afternoon at Piedmont Park in Atlanta, Georgia:

  1. Now that I see these nice pictures, it reminds me of a saying that goes something like this: “Do you know why a windshield is bigger than a rearview mirror? Because the road ahead is more important than the one you just left behind.” Very nice picts!

  2. LOVE your “eye” for photos! My son is a disc golfer — I’l have to share these with him. Thanks for visiting my blog — I’ll definitely be back to check yours! 🙂

    • Thank you so much! I’m so glad to hear your son is a disc golfer!!! Is he a pro or does he just play for fun? I’m glad you enjoyed these photographs and please do share them with your son! Thank you for taking the time to read and stop by my blog! I’m thrilled to hear you will be back!

    • OHHHHH that sounds like a really fun idea!!! I’m definitely trying that out… that will help me not be so literal too… more like collage work or something. Thank you for the inspiration!!! As always, I greatly appreciate your feedback 🙂

  3. Very cool shots.

    I suspect it isn’t popular but I actually like the shots where you can see the camera. I find it interesting at times to see the process, so to speak.

    • Thank you! Yeah apparent’y it isn’t popular… but that is not stopping me from including my camera in the refection… it adds dimension to a photograph when you can see the process and I love that. I’m so glad to hear you agree! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and for leaving me with thoughtful feedback! I hope you will come back again. 🙂

Let me know what you are thinking :)
