St. Paul’s Cathedral | Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background


In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.

In a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that says In the Background.

Because I’m really liking the subject matter for this week’s Photo Challenge, this is my 2nd entry. I took this photo outside the Tate Modern in London, UK and managed to capture the reflection of St. Paul’s Cathedral in the background. It’s amazing how, by accident, a chance reflection in an otherwise regular cafe window becomes the focal point of the photograph. That’s why I love this image.
