Saturday morning I was down around the rail yard getting some more of my ‘portraits’ of grain elevators for a project that I have been working on.  The light was really nice and I was enjoying my time around the stately old towers.  I just happened to look down into a puddle though and saw a reflection and took a number of shots.  Sunday afternoon I began working on my images and took one of the reflections into Silver Efex Pro 2.  I began with one of the Film Noir presets because I wanted to build on the mystery that I felt as I was looking down into that puddle.  I think I found another project to develop more.  Can’t wait for another good rain now to give me more puddles for different views.

Don’t forget to look down as well as up and around.  Possibilities are all around you!
