River Reflections

Some of the photos I took yesterday on my walk along and over the Willamette zeroed in on the river’s reflections. The water’s flow offers another vision of our world.

Refracted, undulating, ephemeral, the ever-moving surface proclaims the river’s depth and urges us to probe our surroundings — and our being.

Reflections in water are known as "borrowed scenery" in Japanese garden design. Japanese Garden designers often place lanterns at the water's edge so they reflect.

There are a lot of other examples of borrowed scenery (look how Portland enjoys Mt. Hood's presence, and considers it a part of the look of the city), but I'm especially fascinated with reflection.
