Lambertville Reflections (Weekend Reflections # 5)


I really like these colorful old houses in Lambertville New Jersey just across the Delaware River from New Hope Pennsylvania. Both towns have lots of charm.

Very colorful street! Probably a good business spot after the recession is over that rent sign will be gone soon. I like the one with the flowers an extra bit :)

Great job James. The colors of the houses are stunning. We need to take a drive in that direction again before the foliage is all gone. If only it would stop raining on Saturdays!

Those matching colors bring life to a town. It makes me think of a paint color palette.

Really like the photos, especially the first one, such vibrant colors in the reflectinos. Very cool.

Pam said...

Great reflections shots, James. The colors of the row houses are so vivid. They show up amazingly well from across the street.

Hi James Thank you for visiting my blog. I didn't understand the word reflection right I think. Must be my bad English. Sorry about that.

Carol said...

Beautiful reflection shot.....so colorful....

Stine in Ontario said...

I really like the colours. It looks like it's all one building but the different colours make it so much more interesting than if it had been painted totally grey. It sure makes a lovely reflection!

Mama Zen said...

Amazing how clear they are!

Michael said...

Great shots. I wish my window cleaner could polish like that.

Vogon Poet said...

That's a real life rainbow street.
Hope folk like my first reflection. Apologies to any blogging lobsters of a nervous disposition.

awarewriter said...

Great shots James. The colors are so saturated. The scene seems Mediterranean. I had no idea they used primary colors like this in NJ.

Ebie said...

Great clarity of photos and simply beautiful! Love the variety of colors!

Sunny said...

I love your reflections, the colors are just wonderful.
I really have to pay more attention to taking reflection pictures!

What great imagination James. I love the way they bring to life the old tenement row houses from long ago.

Becky and Gary said...

Excellant catch James, AND there are some mighty clean windows here. LOL

Lew said...

Great shots James! Such vibrant color in the sky and buildings.

Lovely colorful reflections, and that clear blue sky ... aaaah!!!! Lovely!

Anya said...

AMAZING reflections James (@^.^@)
So colorful :)

Rebecca said...

Lambertville looks very German with the row of colorful houses. All they need is some window boxes with red Geranuims and your would think you were in Germany.

Betty said...

I love the colors!
I´ll have mine up tomorrow.

Bonnie Bonsai said...
