Skywatch Doppelgänger


This shot is straight out of the camera, not even any cropping. I came to this spot and just knew that this would be a shot that I would like. I love reflections. One of these days I should start a reflections meme.

Ebie said...

You are always great with Skyscrapers! I think it would be a great idea of starting a new meme on reflections! You don't have to "reflect" on it, go ahead!

This one is awesome!

clairz said...

I have been realizing lately that I am very literal in what I am looking at and often don't even see what is reflected in nearby surfaces. I think you've educated my eye and have given me a new hobby!

Go with the reflections idea, I love it.

Thank you for sharing this great photo.

fourwindsphotojournal said...

Perfect. And yes, that would be a good meme.

marianne said...

You are right, once and then you can feel these shots. This is a great image and the reflection is perfect.

That's one sweet shot. Like others, at first I didn't realize I was looking at a reflection. Then it hit me and I was like Wow. Very cool.

Thanks for popping by my blog.

Very cool....

AKO said...

A nice skyline. Just curious of what is sticking up in the middle of the picture. Is it a building?

chrome3d said...

At first I didn´t knew which was the original and which was not. That is a good feeling when you know this is IT.

AKO said...

Yes, you were right!! It really IS breast cancer awareness candy. A new campaign to raise money for research. Good of you to figure that out!

You are also right about the sour candy cars, I really like them, but the originals are the best. :)

Have a great weekend! :D
