Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post at WordPress is a bit of a puzzler.

In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even 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 or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.

On a foodie photo shoot in the Rue Mouffetarde in Paris I managed to catch a reflection of myself in the shop window of this lovely patisserie/boulangerie/café. La Maison Des Tartes is an extremely tiny little café. At first glance you might even think they are a small take out bakery with all their amazingly delicious tartes displayed through the window.

I'd like to hear your opinion
