I've long been attracted to reflective surfaces and how they can distort an image, especially water. But other surfaces, such as glass or metal, can also yield unusual results. This gallery contains a variety of images, each with its own distinctive reflective quality. For instance, I shot Hotel Room #1 and #2 off the glass surface of a framed print in a hotel room, capturing unique elements in the room as well as bits of the print itself.
The ghost-like image of a highrise caught in the reflection of a pond.

Waiting for the rain to stop outside the Smart Museum at the University of Chicago.
The inside of a hotel room captured off the glass of a framed print hanging on the wall.
At the beach, where land, sea, and sky fuse into one image.
A woman glides by a Gerhard Richter painting in a musuem in Basel, Switzerland.
A second shot of the hotel room capturing the room's curtains and a small grove of trees.
The sky isn't where it ought to be in this watery pond scene.
