I went to the US Capitol the other morning to take pictures during the sunrise. The night before it had been raining out and there were small puddles of water around. While walking around taking pictures I came across this reflection.
If you are out taking pictures after a rain storm you definitely want to look down at the puddles to see if there’s anything interesting. Mirroring your main image or even making the focal point of the image be the reflection as in this image, adds an element of interest to the photograph.
In the background of the photograph you can see a lot of the scaffolding that’s being put up to build the stands that will be used during the inauguration in 2013.
