For the bloggers who post pictures for the weekly challenges, Reflections is a repeat theme. Back in May, Ailsa of Where’s My Backpack? began the Travel Theme with Reflections. A few months later, Jake Sprinter’s Sunday Post was themed Reflections. And now comes the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections. I checked my collection and found a few pictures for today’s theme.

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Liquid, and some very interesting pictures are posted for the challenge. Here is my interpretation of the theme:
A Special Photo Challenge this week is about Inspiration and what inspires you to blog? It says “We blog because there are people, places, things, and ideas that we care about so much we can’t help but tell the world about them.” True. I started this blog to write about healthcare issues as the name of the blog suggests. Somewhere along the way I posted a few recipes because I’m so passionate about food, and found that it attracted more traffic than my healthcare posts. And, now I blog mainly to post photographs of colorful recipes, places, and things that draw my attention. Here is the inspiration for me to write about food and recipes….my recipe appeared in a food magazine recently, and you can read about it in my earlier post. I’m humbled but also encouraged and inspired to do more of what I love to do – cook, take pictures, and blog about it.
Here are some examples of architecture – head over to Jake Sprinter’s Sunday Post: Architecture to see other entries.
Here is my entry for Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Mystical. Can you guess what this is?
This is an ice carving of a maple leaf…..I saw this at Columbus Circle in New York City yesterday as part of the Ice Fest on the Circle. The ice carvers were chiseling away into huge blocks of ice to create masterpieces as part of Canada’s Winterlude Festival 2013 to be held in Ottawa in February next year.
Last week I was at a conference in Manhattan, and walking down Park Avenue came upon these colorful aluminium sculptures in front of the building, The Seagram. They are an exhibition of four monumental sculptures by the late artist John Chamberlain. Soaring to a height of fifteen feet, the four playfully twisted sculptures are constructed from silver, green and copper industrial aluminum. The aluminum material has a reflective and texturized surface that respond to changes in the atmosphere, altering the overall appearance of each sculpture. Therefore, depending on the time of the day, light plays a pivotal role in adding another facet to exploring these wonders.
Jake’s Sunday Post is Wonderful, and these sculptures seem to fit the bill.
