An after-school special

An after-school special
Buena Park, CA (Luci Bird)

The streets were still wet from a light drizzle when Luci Bird's daughter came home from school two months ago. "It was the first rain of the season, I believe, so I was pretty excited," the photographer said. "I love taking and exploring reflection shots, so I jumped at the chance."

Bird, who took the image in Buena Park on her Samsung Galaxy S3, says her daughter is usually willing to go along with her photo ideas.
