Saturday Photo Hunt: REFLECT

April 20th, 2012 (11:23 pm)



It's time for another edition of the Saturday Photo Hunt. This week's theme is REFLECT.

I took this photo while riding down an escalator in the convention center, the Palais des congres, in Montreal. There's a huge wall of windows in a patchwork of stained glass - big colorful squares of it. Inside the building, there's a shiny mirrored wall. The person sitting on the floor is resting against it.

I loved the way the colors poured in through the glass and bounced all over the room. In the photos I took from the escalator, I tried to capture the way color and light transform the space so that nothing seems solid. It felt almost like being underwater. Add to that a convention center full of thousands of sleep-deprived science fiction convention-goers (I was there for WorldCon at the time) and the scene reflects a quiet moment amidst the sense of unreality we were all feeling by this point in the week. Of all the photos I've ever shot, this is one of my favorites.
