On further reflection
This image by Jean-Paul Pelissier shows the car of Formula One driver Fernando Alonso in the pit lane reflected in a fireman’s visor. It is not until you have looked at this picture for a few moments that you remember that there is somebody behind the visor looking back us.
Still on Formula One drivers, Claro Cortes IV’s picture of Lewis Hamilton requires a second look to fully understand what is happening. Almost symetrical but not quite, the white line reinforces a first impression that this is some sort of technical malfunction which has given us two halves of consecutive frames.
Eddie Keogh’s interesting action shot from this year’s Wimbledon of Marat Safin reflected in a window looks like motion blur but is just a result of imperfection in the glass.
One of my favourites referred to in a previous blog is this image by Dylan Martinez of Filippo Inzhagi after his team won the Champions League final. Of course he’s kissing the cup but the way Dylan sees it makes it hard to tell whether the real object of Inzaghi’s affections is the trophy or the image of himself.
