The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Refraction

DSC_0893
As a student, I was never one people called studious. I loved carrying books with me and reading but I never really was keen on fully understanding and absorbing what I was reading.

This time I had to find the real meaning of “refraction” as opposed to “reflection”. Am I the only one who’s not fully getting it? Because really I find the term “refraction” challenging to show.

I searched for images showing refraction and they were all beautiful. Still am not confident of what I got here.

Above is a waterlily with its stems refracted in a garden pool taken during a visit at the Chicago Botanical this year.

    If I saw a refraction photo, I probably would think it was reflection. 🙂 Beautiful waterlily!

    Me too Amy, although there’s a big difference between the two. I really learned something with this assignment.

    well I love the reflection and the refraction 🙂 ❤
    and I think there is a typo for the word studios – think it should be studious – ?

    anyhow, I love your lily and nice entry for the challenge

    Thanks Yvette. I will make the correction. I was reading it and I knew there was something missing. Getting and feeling very old!
