Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflections

The Jaguar hood ornament is reflected in the beautiful finish of this classic car.

This week we are challenged to reflect where we’ve been in life, where we are now, and where we are going. To view the specifics of this week’s challenge, click here. My wife, Lynn, and I are beginning our third year of retirement. It’s been a busy two years proving the old retiree’s adage that proclaims “I don’t know how I had enough time in the day to go to work.”

My first thought was to sequence through my series of photos taken in the last couple of years of retirement looking for reflections and telling the story of the events depicted. Then I realized that would be a pretty large gallery. When it comes to the photo challenge, I always follow the KISS principle. I try to keep my challenge entries to two or three images. Of course, for this challenge there doesn’t need to be a physical reflection in the images chosen, after all, the challenge is as much a reflection on life events as it is on reflective light.

This chromium beauty not only reflects the drive belt and pulley on the front cowl assembly, it reflects the faces of its admirers in the engine air intakes.

In any case, I decided to find a couple of examples of reflections to reflect upon. One of the more enjoyable pastimes I’ve discovered since retiring is the Barrett-Jackson auction. I submit for your visual entertainment, a couple of reflections on vehicles I photographed at this year’s exhibition.
