Take a Photo, Get a patch!

Hello Everyone.

Some of you know me too well, some of you new people may have no idea who I am.

After some time away from instructables for various reasons (partly because I have been helping with my local Hackspace in Nottingham) I am back with a vengeance. One of things I would like to start up again is my 'Take a photo, get a patch' monthly give away.

As a site that revolves around the sharing of photos accompanied with instructions, photos are a big part of what we do. I want to help encourage creativity around taking them.

The photography patch give away is simple.

I set a challenge, you then have to go out and take a new photo, post it in the comments and you get a patch. You have until the next monthly patch giveaway to submit.

This months challenge is 'Reflections' I recently posted a new instructable about a 'black mirror' here
Find something with a good reflection and take a picture, try and get as little of yourself in the reflection as you can.

Remember, every new photo posted as a comment gets a patch.

Edit: Bonus prize of a 1 year Instructables membership for the best photo (chosen by myself) and a 3 month membership for the first person using a Claude Glass!

I like taking pictures, and, while I only just got my own camera, I have taken MANY pictures before, I believe several of which have reflections. I will go look.
I just realised that the batch of pictures witch included the picture I am thining of was removed from my droipbox to make room for more, and the comptue rthey are stoed on is currently inacessible. So, I guess I will be taking original pictures. If I can get my mom to buy some black spray paint (As you cannot buy it (at home depot) when you are under18) I will use https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-your-own-Claude-Glass-or-Black-Mirror/
(I have a 2 OHP lens laying around.)
o, wait, it had t be from the month of May? I'm a bit late then :) *checks if you have newer ones*
tee hee hee :)
I was sitting on the couch when I noticed the reflection of the lace curtain on the front door, in the photograph on the wall in front of me. I finally captured the reflection. Here it is.

Nice little comp.. Ok.. several pics of my motorbike.

The first was taken in a German motorway services a few weeks back. I was on the way home from a friend who lives in Germany. Stopped here to eat some lunch, his loverly wife made for me and also take on some water. It was a wee bit hot that weekend! You can see reflections in the back of the screen and the fairing mirror.

Next pics were taken today, (tue 22/05/2012) They are reflections in the bike clocks of the gorgeous sunshine, that I should be out riding in..

The last is in the mirror. Story here is that this is a mod I did to the bike. Its a Yamaha XJ900s Diversion. The mirrors are usually on the handle bars. I did a modification, where by they are now mounted on the fairing. (see it better in pic 1)

Have posted the modification in the DIversion owners forum. Didnt think it fitted this site, so never did a write up for it.

IF I win the patch, its going onto my bike jacket, to wear as a proud symbol of Intrucability. lol

How do I include a picture in my comment?
Click on the "Add Comment" button, and you'll see a button below the comment window that says "add images". Click on that button, and you can then "upload" an image from your computer by clicking on the "Choose Files" button. Once your image is uploaded, you need to type something to include with your image (you can't just post images, you have to type something). Then you can click on the "preview" button (to be sure your image was added successfully). Then simply click on the "post comment" button.

Hope that helps you!
went to Chicago a while ago saw this in my camera roll in my iphone 4 and thought it was perfect
somehow im not in the picture :)
