Today’s artsy: California reflections
« on: February 02, 2019, 02:58:25 pm »

Done with grocery shopping, I got back in the car and looked left as I put my seatbelt on. Reflected in the door handle of the car next to me were a couple of palm trees, bright and clear in the shiny silver.

Of course all I had was an iPhone, so I grabbed a few frames, trying to duplicate my original eyeline. A bit of cropping and other work in post-processing and we have a nice California-iconic image.

I might have liked to have seen the car, too, but then I have this thing for them...

For me, it's all California dreamin'.

Thanks Eric!

This one is my fav. The even tighter crop is good too, but CA is IMO a panoramic kinda place.  ;)
