Waiting and Skywatching


Yesterday I took my car in to get serviced and while I waited I walked around Newtown taking pictures. Here are a couple of them.
Also I would like to thank everyone who participated in Weekend Reflections and remind those who are interested that Friday is once again Weekend Reflections time. It's so nice to see all of the cool and creative reflection photos.

Bibi said...

Wow, James, these are beautiful. "Compositions in Blue and Black" (and white...). Puts my upcoming Skywatch to shame.

Vogon Poet said...

I like both images, but being not sure of what the first is about, I'll say the my favorite is the second one.
I'm trying hard for a nice reflection but I can't find much around. But I still have today left...

Congratulations James, your photos are wonderful! I can not choose which photos I liked more. The first is a light and released into the air, a thought, a desire, an idea of something new turning a beauty shot.

The second photograph is something amazing, I loved the angle and the silhouette of the tree! Surealismo like a dream!
God bless you
Léia :)

Ebie said...

Hi James, the banners look like the tutus worn by ballerinas, flowing with grace and beauty!

chrome3d said...

You certainly found the intriguing elements to fly through your skies. The flags (?) waved in the wind that it made me feel so fresh.

RuneE said...

I enjoyed the effects of the scaefs,or flags or whatever it is. It shows the wind.

PS I'll be reflective at 00.00 GMT :-), but can't log on until tomorrow.

Dina said...

Isn't it great when you are forced into down-time like that and just get to wander and photograph leisurely?
