Weekend Reflections

Linking with the maestro of reflections himself, James, for this week's Weekend Reflections. My addiction is totally his fault. Thanks James.

"Ma'am, step away from the camera"
....honestly, this is what I mean. The reflection spotting is pervasive. Kind of cool though. Thankful that both the car and bike owners were inside getting their ice cream cones, while I was outside eating mine and noticing this.

When I was a kid they made shoes at this old mill building. The company was called "Kesslen Shoe", so I still call it that despite the building's total refurbishment to shops and offices and new name of Lafayette Center (since like 1985....I need to embrace the change).

Here's "Kesslen Shoe" again....I'm jus' messin' with ya. It's the Lafayette Center.



Have a wonderful weekend. We're getting rain, maybe I'll put down the camera and read a book.

Yes, that is an unusual car reflection! Great spotting!

Fabulous, that first photo, Susan. And Kesslen Shoe is fascinating. I've often done the same thing, continuing to use the old name for a building long since re-purposed, renamed, and 50% of the population doesn't realize there ever was an old name. LOL
Good work.

Wonderful reflections, Susan! I think a lot of us have gotten addicted to reflections/shadows etc. I know I find myself looking for them everywhere I go!! Amazing how many you do find! These are terrific shots for the day! Enjoy your weekend!

There is something gratifying about seeing things through reflections...seems to make life look a little different and can be quite inspiring for photos!

You always manage to find such the creative reflection shots! I especially love the Kesslen Shoe building. ;-)

Love the reflection of the motorcycle in the car, interesting opposites there! Stay dry this weekend, a rainy dreary weekend is just what I need!

There's something about mills that I find so intriguing. That one has been so nicely rebuilt. Of course, the motorcycle is my fav :-)

James said...

These are great! At first my eye was drawn to the motorcycle fender than bang I saw the reflection on the car. :-)

Hi Susan, we are getting rain again????? Don't put down that camera go get some shots of raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...:)I bet it's your weekend off, too. Great old mill building. I always wanted to live in one of those buildings converted into loft apartments...yeh, in another life. Sounds like a great place to live though doesn't it. All artsy folk!
Enjoy the weekend cuz it's the only one we got.

Reflections - they are addictive! Since it was raining here today, you could find me at the movie theatre, prior to the start of the show, shooting the reflections found on the tile walls.

Love all your examples - the last one is my favorite. I like the way you can see the full view in the reflection, while the tree branches cover the "real thing" at the top.Simply gorgeous!

I'm heading to NYC this weekend - if the weather will cooperate, hope to catch some skyscraper reflections. Have a great weekend!

Martha Z said...

Yes, James does have us looking for reflections. Along with shadows it has become and addiction.

You always make me giggle. Gorgeous reflections. Have a wonderful weekend.

What fabulous reflections. The motorcycle one is really cool while the other two are beautiful. You did a great job with your captures. genie

Catherine said...

Love that first motor cycle shot - fab!

Linda said...

Great reflections, but your witty comments are priceless! Embracing the change...huh...not sure I like that! I resist...always!

All nice, as usual, but that motorcycle reflection on the car is especially cool!
