New Year's Day (Weekend Reflections #15)

Happy New Year!

This is a reflection in a shop window in Prague. You can see a typical scene but if you look closely it appears that the man and woman in the reflection are also on the staircase that's inside the shop.

"Weekend Reflections" rules are simple:

1)Post a *reflection photograph that was taken by you. (*A photo that contains a reflection)

2)After I post my Weekend Reflections photo, add your name, country and link to MckLinky

3)Be sure that your link goes directly to your Weekend Reflections post.

4)Comment on other Weekend Reflections participant’s blogs.

Feel free to be creative. Remember this meme is for any type of reflection.
This meme runs Friday 11 am EST through Sunday, so feel free to link your post anytime within that time frame. Join the fun!

I see the ghost stair and the real footsteps James. I like the color in this shot. It establishes a sense of place without being in your face. Happy New Year.

Clever and beautiful shot, James! I love the architectural detail and the colors!

Pam said...

That's an amazing shot, James. I had to really look closely at it to figure out where to people belonged...inside or out. I love it, its great.
Happy New Year, my friend. All the best you and Vicki in 2010.

Sunny said...

A fascinating picture, James. The buildings are really interesting too, I like all the different facades.
Happy 2010!
Sunny :)

Carol said...

Another great shot of Prague! The architectural details are beautiful...and the reflection is an added bonus!

Prague is a wonderful place for reflections! Happy New Year!

RuneE said...

Very intricate! BTW, my shot of the moon might have rated as a reflection since the moon shines by reflection only.

Regina said...

Beautiful building and reflections!
Happy New Year again!

Thom said...

Indeed it does my friend. Wonderful photo :) Happy New Year :)

ER said...

Wonderful photo, James. Brings back my memories of Prague...sigh. Happy New Year! Lizzy :)

Very nice one James - happy new year.

storyteller said...

Intriguing shot ... lots to capture the eye and the imagination too. I'm participating at Happily Retired Gal this week rather than Small Reflections ... just because.

May the new decade bring you and yours joyful opportunities and experiences!
Hugs and blessings,

Julie said...

James, you have confirmed in me an interest in Prague that weas kindled by Alex's blog. The city is very beautiful, none moreson than the way you show it today.

May I wish you and Vicki health and happiness and a dollop of giddiness as we journey through twenty ten.

The Things We Carried said...

I like the shot! Prague lives up to its reputation for beauty and you live up to yours for talent!

Happy New Year, James!

Carolyn Ford said...

I like this...it's like a puzzle to visually put together. Very nicely captured.

Thérèse said...

A lot of geometry in this shot, very nice. Have a great first day of the year!

sunnymama said...

Great picture and the staircase reflection is really cool! Hope you have a wonderful New Year. :)

Ellie Vellie said...

Happy new Year! Health and happiness!

Diane AZ said...

Just like reflections, steps are intriguing too, and this image has both! Great way to start the new year!

eileeninmd said...

James, tt is a very creative and cool reflection. I was looking and checking out everything. Well done!

Tinsie said...

That's a lovely photo. Happy new year!

Lucy Corrander said...

I think I like this best when not trying to work out what's what - so the reflections become patterns over-laying the street scene. One of the things I specially like about your photos is the way architecture is almost always prominent.

I have joined Weekend Reflections for the first time today and have added my link. Hope this is ok.

Happy New Year!

Lucy

Intriguing sense of illusion here! The staircase almost looks like a starburst in reflection! Beautiful!

VP said...

Some magic at work here, the subject helps, but you surely got the best from it. Masterful shot.

Dina said...

Dear Prague, beautiful wet or dry.

If the couple were really on the stairs, they'd look like miniatures.
Interesting and fun shot!

Becky and Gary said...

An amazing shot James. There is so much to see in this picture.
Welcome back and Happy New Year.
Becky

mbkatc230 said...

I could swear I had commented on this James, and now the comment seems to be lost in cyberspace. Anyway, I really like this shot! The colors of the building are beautiful, and I was surprised at the number of reflections when the photo is enlarged. Really nice capture! Kathy
