It doesn’t take much to make an interesting image, and it isn’t necessary to travel to exotic places if you keep an open mind and simply look around.

I’ve always enjoyed looking for patterns, and an easy way to find them is to look for simple subjects reflected in water. THis shot could have been made almost anywhere, and I bet I’ve walked past similar opportunities many hundreds of times. But on this particular day I noticed this reflection at the Veterans Oasis Park in Chandler, AZ while I was carrying a lens suitable to record it.

There’s no complicated technique involved here, nor any expensive or exotic gear. This was simply “point and shoot” with a modest Nikon D70 and a modest Nikon 55-200 “plastic” lens, hand held at 90mm and ISO 400.
