Reflections… An instant slideshow in my head with pretty pictures of reflections on water. But I have no idea how to design elements with reflections. Plus, simulating water and its’ reflections in Photoshop sounds like hell… for me at least 😉 I spotted some pretty flowers on the waterside when doing a google image search on reflections, and my mind pondered over the flower. Flowers… Reflections… Where have I heard this before? A flower reflecting in… Wait, I know!
You probably know the story of Narcissus, but if you don’t here’s my summary:
Narcissus is an astoundingly beautiful young boy, so wrapped up in himself he feels he is too good for any of his suitors. One day, he rests near a silvery lake. When he bends over to drink the water, he sees his own reflection and falls madly in love with himself. But whatever he does, he cannot touch or kiss this newfound love. When he finally realizes it is his own reflection, his heart breaks and he wastes away and dies… His body is never found, but on the lakeside a yellow flower appears, encircled by a white flower crown. This flower is believed to be the “Narcissus” or as we all know it: the daffodil.
There have been people who have marveled at the weird way my mind works sometimes. This time, so have I… From Reflections to daffodils in the blink of an eye. Maybe I am just a tiny bit weird after all 😉
Enough of the way my mind works, on to the download! This time I am hosting my own download, but I am kind of weary my host will pull the plug on me in case the traffic on my site explodes, haha. So I promise nothing, only to keep a watchful eye on my comments and act accordingly if I see any comments about not being able to download. Have fun & happy creating!
