Photography: My Shot – Reflections on Dinner

I have always been interested in lighting, shadows and reflections. Most of us have probably looked at reflections of ourselves in a glass ball, a jar or perhaps a glass doorknob and became interested, if not fascinated, about the distorted representation of ourselves.

I recently returned to a restaurant we like which has a great view of the Phoenix, AZ valley. As a matter of fact, the restaurant is called Different Pointe of View. It is part of the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs complex in the Moon Valley section of Phoenix. The hotel and restaurant sit on a mountain top.

While we were dinning, the sun set and as I looked at the view of the valley in the large glass windows, not only could I see the city lights, I could see the reflection of our dinner table and it was mesmerizing.

The coffee cups and teapot are very discernable as are the two frontmost glases of water. What makes the photo most interesting to me is the reflection of the two people in the foreground combined with a view of the distant city lights. When I consider this was taken with my iPhone, I am pleased with the abstract result.

Photography: As Shot – Reflections of Dinner

NOTE – “As Shot” photographs are some that I have posted on Instagram, but without any imposed crop that might not be warranted, less detail reduction and more of an explanation.


Reflections of Dinner in a wine glass

Reflections of dinner in a wine glass

I don’t usually photograph abstract scenes or items, but sitting at dinner a few days ago, I was fascinated by the reflections of our dinner plates, silverware and food in the bottom half of my wine glass. It may be hard to see, but look carefully and I think you will notice the plates, spoons, etc. in the reflection. They are distorted by the curvature of the glass.

Humor Video – Dogs Called to Dinner

These dogs are very well-behaved. Each waits until their name is called before proceeding to the chow line. They appear to be called in a random order, but could be conditioned to the same daily roll call. All goes well UNTIL…the very last dog who seems to have the patience of Job or resents being called last. I think you will enjoy this very short video.
