WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – In the Background

This somewhat weird photograph is in response to this week’s photo challenge:-

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 the foreground, the center of attention.

This is a photograph taken through a window, through my house, and a window on the other side.  There is a shadowy reflection of myself, but also a very clear reflection of the garden behind me.  Weird for sure, but kind of interesting!
