Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

In the Background: The places that we pass… once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself…, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the…. the foreground, the center of attention.”
