Reflections in Kaufman



Several weeks ago I took a short trip down to Kaufman to take some photos. After walking around the town square, I ventured a block or 2 west of downtown and found this neat old building that houses a gymnasium/workout center. I thought it was a great opportunity to take a few 'reflection' shots of myself - through the windows and reflecting off the mirrors that lined the walls inside.

Through the windows the building seemed dark - and I thought it was closed... which is why I lingered and zoomed in through the window to get the picture of myself... after probably 4 minutes or so of pointing and shooting I heard a noise from inside the building. Some weights being dropped inside the room where I was photographing through the window =) I'm still not sure who was inside, but it startled me and as I came around to the front of the building I saw where they had weekend hours and cars in the parking lot. =) I can't see anyone in my photos aside from myself, but someone in Kaufman probably thought i was peeping in on their workout!!

I like the idea of being reflected in the mirrors inside. Neat photo. I like the story too!

Looks like an interesting building. Definately not the LA Fitness genre or workout shrine is it?
