A large part of creating an Etsy store is selecting and preparing photos for sale.   Many times I am looking for similar subject matter so that my store does not appear to be without rhyme or reason.  It is so hard to not get sidetracked......and tonight was no different.  I was drawn to reflection photos.
Neither of these two photos will make it to my store.   If you look closely, you can see me, the photographer.

 This is a mistake made by almost every photographer at some point in their careers, but sometimes it  makes for an interesting shot.  I feel like I should make this a "Where is Waldo" contest. Can you find me?

 Most of the time I just delete the photo, but for some reason, this one made it through the cut.

Then there is the one I took knowing I would be in the reflection.  Then.....
out of nowhere...... someone walked into my picture.  Oh.... I cropped her out, and I could Photoshop her totally out, but I am not sure this is a photograph that anyone but me would be interested in owning.

So, while I was at it, I decided to look for other photos with a "refection theme" in mind.  I surprised myself by finding photos I had forgotten about.

Mostly because they are just nice photos  

Then there are photos that are, well.....noteworthy.  Yes, they will make it to my store.
                        So I leave you with the above.  Comments welcome.

Maybe a subject for my next blog will  have a nautical theme ....that is unless my "doors" draw me in.
 (Pun intended.)

Until next time.


  1. It's really hard choise a photo for the shop!
    Some photo are incredible for the photographer but it's not appreciate from visitors!
    Good luck!

  2. You are so right Kristarka. Thank you for your comment.
