Weekend Reflections

Linking with James for this week's Weekend Reflections






Beautiful Beast

An elementary school-out of my area, so this was a brake stomper.  I did get some closer images, but you'd miss the architecture.  Sadly an administrator came out to see what I was doing.  I mentioned my awe in the beauty, but left soon after.  I hate that sense of wrong doing-based on crazy people's actions.  Normally I'm more bold, but thought it was best to move along.

Gee, I have a plethora of lobster boat images....I like both the boat and the riff-raff wharf playing off the water.

A jump back to my Cuba trip.  The contrast of architecture and brilliant blue caught my eye.

I'm guessing only reflection lovers can appreciate this selfie.  It is a store front where hanging in the window was the abstract art piece.  How can one not?  You know?

This was a cloud cover day-would like to see that horse reflected with better sun.
 
 
That's it for this week.  Thanks for taking a look and thank you James.

A very nice serie of reflection this week again, Susan ! I just love the one called Art in the windows : the colors are so pretty, like a rainbow in a frame...

Susan said...

Gorgeous reflections! I especially love the blue window reflection. Have a marvelous weekend!

I tend to look guilty even when I'm not so I'd have died if someone had approached me about photographing something. My brother likes to photograph derelict buildings but I'm too scared to go with them. They often have security or chain link fences around them. I'm terrified of being arrested or something while in the UK and not being able to get back home. :0)

I've been getting a TON of spam too, I've set it up to monitor each comment before it gets published but it's a real pain the butt.

Love the selfie, took my eyes a moment to adjust and see it.

Wonderful set of images - each very interesting and with their own story. I really respect the photos that tell a story, and it seems you have that gift! Love the selfie! My shot's from ME this week - from a trip last weekend. I'm in the Boston area!

lovely shots! really great boat, artsy window and rider on the beach!

I very much love the art in the window.

It IS sad that a school administrator felt anxious about you photographing the school. Very sad.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Let's see, I'm standing outside the school property with a camera in my hand, what could I possibly be doing? Sadly, I agree with your decision - it's not worth the hassle. Lady C is quite excellent, I can just imagine her puttering in from a good day's catch.

I love your collection of reflections, Susan. Yeah, sad that folks are uncomfortable with photographers in certain venues - and you acted appropriately.
It took me a little bit to see the selfie - so glad you are still doing them, I seemed to have waned...

Sylvia K said...

These are fantastic reflections for the day, Susan!! And what a terrific variety! These days and as a former teacher, I can understand the concern as well as your reaction, but it is such a sad sign of our times! Have a great weekend!

What a very nice series! ;-)

Great collection of photos. Love the boat in the dock.

Tamar SB said...

That school is gorgeous - wow!! Still love the CUba images you share!

Carol Blackburn said...

Remember Susan, if you have AAA they will bail you out if you get in trouble photographing public buildings. Love all the shots. And if you are ok with it I will use "plethora" as my word of the day. Long time since I heard that one. :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Ms. Becky said...

Hey friend, long time. I've peeked in here a couple of times and drooled over a few of your shots. Who am I kidding? More than a few of your shots. I fell in love with last week's reflections - simply superb and very moving images. Love the work you're doing - the lens flare Caddy, Toward the Sea, Art in the Window. Yeah, I love it. Happy weekend to you Susan. I hope you don't have any open houses...

Deborah Tisch said...

Lady Catherine and the horse rider are simply exquisite. I hope I spelled that right...but you get what I mean?

Rosie Grey said...

Another gorgeous selection of photos, Susan - I love them! I've also had several experiences with people "getting unfriendly" when I just wanted to take a picture of a building...
Have a wonderful weekend, Susan!

Good to see you out capturing reflections in your snow-less world. Yeah! I also hate that feeling of trespass or wrong-doing when I am shooting somewhere - and am asked what I am doing. Once I was shooting a company headquarters from the sidewalk and was told by a security guard that I wasn't allowed. Even when I informed then that it is my right to shoot whatever I want from a public sidewalk, they persisted and I caved, leaving soon after - with that sick feeling in my stomach that I was the one in the wrong - even though I wasn't.

Anyway, I love your reflections set. I can see why you did a brake-stomp for the school - I would too. Wondrous examples all.

Sarah Huizenga said...

Hey you live in Maine, you are all about Lobster boats. It is so sad what the world has come to that you can't take pictures without being questioned about your motives. There is a wonderful bank in our downtown with awesome architectural detail both inside and out, but I would never dream of shooting inside because they would think I am casing the place to rob it.

James Wei said...

The art on the window looks really really good!

James said...

Great shots! I spent time trying to pick a favorite, then a few favorites and finally I just excepted the fact that I can't decide. :-)
