Aaah … that is a mystery solved then Ian. I misread the image and thought the woman in the window was being protective. Now it has a whole new slant.
Pete … I agree with Ian and like the first one best. Well spotted!November 19, 2012 at 4:10 pm #2065
November Entry – Through The Car Window…
(Well, somebody had to do one, innit?!)

I like the way you’ve got a frame in a frame and the position of the car in the reflection. Did you deliberately get the white line on the left to continue into the mirror?November 20, 2012 at 5:11 pm #2086
Pete >>> Thanks for the kind comment. Can’t claim to have got the lines aligned on purpose – not much you can do about stuff like that at 70 mph on the motorway (unless of course you’re steering with one hand while taking the photo through the passenger window with the other, which I hasten to say I wasn’t doing!).November 21, 2012 at 1:39 pm #2090
What I also like about this is the fact that the it a study in blue. Two blue cars and then the sky as the third. You’ll probalby correct me saying both cars aren’t blue, its only the sky confusing us by reflecting on the front car.November 21, 2012 at 2:15 pm #2091
Meg, you’re quite right: part of what’s going on in the image has to do with complementary colour – the blues of cars and sky versus the golds of the embankment.
(The blueness of objects in the mirror is in part due to an anti-glare coating on the mirror glass – the car I’m in is in fact silver-grey; but it looks bluish because of the reflected sky colour and the coating on the mirror.)November 23, 2012 at 2:43 pm #2121
Just came across this collection of windows / through-the-window images. May give us some ideas for the remaining week of this theme:November 25, 2012 at 7:43 pm #2153
Thanks for the link Mac. I needed some inspiration! I had a spare 1/2 hour this afternoon and it was dark so I stayed in and came up with this effort. It needs a lot of fine tuning though, but you get the idea. I placed a flash on a tripod with a red filter attached behind the strange character. This was the only light source. If it had front lighting it would have destroyed the effect of the glass. The camera was set manually to 1/60 at f5.6 and I used a 10 second self timer.

I had a problem loading the image earlier, but have got it sorted now.November 25, 2012 at 8:11 pm #2156
Pete >>> That’s brilliant! Really sinister. Very well done!November 26, 2012 at 10:50 am #2158
Pete what a brilliant shot and idea. Very sinister and Hitchcockian. But you know I thought you had given up your breaking and entering days.November 26, 2012 at 8:31 pm #2167
Wow! I like that. What a great idea. Well done Pete!November 26, 2012 at 10:13 pm #2170
Thanks for taking the time and trouble to look and comment folks. Don’t forget to keep your doors locked!November 27, 2012 at 9:12 am #2172
Peter, that is a belter!
Can I suggest a bit darker so hiding the fact that there are no locks! and you have a real winner there, great stuff.
You could make it mono too, though I appreciate why it is red!November 27, 2012 at 10:27 am #2173
I must get an image for the end of the week. Watch this space!
