Back to the Future

Back to the Future - Tire tracks in a puddle in downtown Phoenix

Twice this year I’ve been able to do some stormy sunset reflection shots downtown and I have to say, I absolutely LOVE this kind of photography. But first off, this is Movie Title Wednesday and we’re going with Back to the Future this week!

I remember seeing Back to the Future for the first time as a kid at my aunt’s house. God bless her for renting it that night. My brother and I loved it. And we’ve been huge fans ever since. I’m fairly certain the old, long-gone, Cine Capri in Phoenix did a marathon one day of all three films that we attended.  Anyways, this was such a good movie. A bit of science fiction time travel, but in a way that didn’t seem like sci-fi at all. Great music, awesome writing and of course, Michael J. Fox whom I’ve loved forever.

I went with this movie today because of the tire tracks in the puddle leading off to a firey sunset. Kind of makes you think of the Delorean’s fire trails after  jumping back in time right?

There is something a heck of a lot of fun about finding these scenes in giant pools of water after a storm. It was actually still raining a bit when I was down there, so a few times I had to duck under some shelter to wait for it to end.

  • Scott Wyden Kivowitz

    Perfect movie title for this photo and such a cool shot too!

  • A.Barlow

    lol, I see what you did there!

    I must say though, that’s a pretty sweet transition the reflections make.

  • Chris DeAngelis

    This shot is definitely a perfect fit for that movie! Awesome reflection shot!

    It’s okay that you liked the first movie… but the fact that you like the second and third too… I don’t know. Tough judgment call. 🙂

  • Brian Furbush

    Wow dude, great shot. I love your reflection images, nice work!

  • Curt Fleenor

    Slick Mike! Awesome image to go with an equally awesome flick.
