Reflections on the Weekend

Linking with James for Weekend Reflections.  Yay.

I've been absent from the reflections scene for quite a bit.  How is it that life gets so damn busy that things seem to slip off the radar?  I guess that's just the way it goes.  Maybe it's the snowy and grey winter we've had.  Snow days are not usually reflection days.....

....but, here's a snowy morning I did make work....by chance.  I was shooting the opposite direction and turned around to find my car helping me out.  I suppose it's not an exciting reflection by any stretch, but I like it anyway-and titling it with a Sir Walter Scott reference adds class.

Short days don't help either.  I'm totally psyched to have DST back!

I love how oblivious people in this image are.  I'm waiting in the check out line-no one is even noting I'm taking a photo.  Maybe they thought I was a weirdo taking a snap of grocery carts outside.  Maybe it's the concentration on the money that's going from their wallets to the cashier.
Maybe it's the incognito hat.  Stealth!

To take my mind off winter, I'll share a shot from last summer in hot Cuba.
I love this one with the subtle courtyard columns reflected on the floor.


Enough.  Time to get back to work.  Have a great weekend and thanks to James for hosting.

I've been out of the reflection thing for a while as well. This is great collection!

Thanks for the visit, too! Nice to see your awesome snaps today. I love the first and second one here!

Sarah Huizenga said...

I love the grocery store shot, and the fact that nobody noticed you taking it. I am not quite sure I would be that brave.

Welcome back Susan, and all this nice reflection, it is such a treat...

Sylvia K said...

Terrific captures for the day, Susan, and welcome back to the fun!! Fun taking those "secret" shots!! Love it! Enjoy your weekend -- camera in hand, of course!!

Nice shots all, my favorite is the Cuba shot with the columns and the purple dresses.

Leanne Barnett said...

I really like the Cuba shot with the purple ladies & columns- nice reflectoins.

Lisa Gordon said...

Great series of images, Susan. I especially like the last one. Great candid shot.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Coincidentally, I was just wondering what happened to your Weekend Reflections. I've been missing them! You got some nice ones in spite of the snowy, dreary, dark-too-early days. The last one made me smile. Did you tell those ladies to just ignore the photographer on the floor? Or perhaps you had recruited them as models and had them wear color-coordinated outfits, too. :-)

Norma Ruttan said...

I really like the last shot, in Cuba! What fun that both ladies were dressed in purple. The floor provides spectacular reflections!

Leave It To Davis said...

Love that last shot especially...it's funny that they didn't notice you shooting them!

Brenda said...

I feel your withdrawal pain - it's hard to get reflection shots when living under a dome of gray. But you have soldiered on and got some good ones. Love the crazy lady in her incognito hat at Trader Joe's - the bright orange carts overlaid on the store interior is an optical puzzle. And of course your "down low" Cuba shot - you know you had me at the columns - and then add in a floor reflection - yeah, baby! that's what I'm talking about. Beautiful

Welcome back Susan! It's great to read your thoughts and see your photos. It will be spring soon and the reflections will be blooming like flowers. :-)

Good old Trader Joe's reminds me of home even though they're all over the country now.

Rosie Grey said...

I'm sure it's the incognito hat ;-)
Wonderful reflections, Susan - I love how you are always thinking out of the box for your challenges!
Thanks so much for your kind message - I didn't even come around answering, as my sinuses decided to get an infection and keep it despite medication... ;-(
Have a wonderful weekend!

You're so right about things slipping off the radar, Susan, but hopefully we are able to get the right people back before they slip away too far.
We were gone for a month, most of it at sea and the rest in Italy, and I've had so much to do since we got back, I'm still not caught up.
Glad to see you found some things to reflect upon, and I love the selfie you took while everyone else went selfishly about their own business. LOL

I've missed your reflections! I love the first one. Was that your intuition kicking in that made you turn around? Also, love the softness of the one with the column reflection! Those ladies strolling along are the perfect touch!

Yesterday I was walking the streets of a very small town here in Wisconsin while my husband dropped off our taxes. I noticed the beautiful and intricate brickwork around some of the windows in town. I grabbed my camera and started photographing them. Unlike your folks who were oblivious, I had people stopping and looking and commenting...maybe they thought I had seen a sign of spring. I love your shot with the columns.

These are all very worthy reflections, but the last one with the great combo of colors, soft violet and the creamy marble, superb!

Deborah Tisch said...

Love the stealth in that hat wearing, and the conversation image...very cool.
