reflections on reflection

As I have written recently, I am working with the pediatric residents on enhancing professionalism in our practice of pediatrics. Part of this entails the process of reflecting upon situations or cases that exemplify issues which either pose a challenge to one of the pillars of professionalism, or have presented personal challenges in response to difficult situations. While I was on vacation, I had the time and the inclination to reflect on some aspects of the process of reflecting. It was made easier by observing the pond on the grounds of the house we were renting, especially at sunset. The reflection of the sky as well as the trees on the far bank was sometimes magnificent and sometimes much less so. Depending upon my perspective and camera angle the photos were sometimes spectacular and sometimes, well...., not.


Take a look at the sequence of photos below and see what you think:

Tell me in the comments section, which photo is the best reflection of reflection in action, and WHY

Photo number 1, taken on day 6 of the vacation

Photo number 2, taken on day 4

Photo number 3, taken on day 2

Photo number 4, day 5

Photo number 5, day 3

Go ahead. Tell me your opinions. You can also tell me which is your favorite, even if it doesn't best reflect your notions of how to best reflect.

I will post my thoughts on the aspects of the environment, the perspective and the photographic technique in a day or two, so get your thoughts and comments in, so we can see how we compare.
