A Glimpse of the Other Side (Weekend Reflections # 9)

The other side of the street. I will soon be on the other side of the Atlantic. This will be my last post until I return in mid to late December with tons of pictures. I hope you don't forget about my blog.

I have scheduled Weekend Reflections to be up and running each week while I'm gone, so have fun.

"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!

  16. What makes this reflection magical to me is the contrast of textures between the rough cement and smooth water. The floating fall colored leaves adds to it also.

    ReplyDelete
  17. The curb brings the eyes where it should: on the other side :-)

    Bon voyage!
    Viel Spaß!

  31. Amazing shot! At first I wondered what on earth you were doing shooting from a pit, then I got it - talk about fooling the eye! Great building, Rittenhouse Square? Anyway, have a wonderful trip and can't wait to see your pictures when you get back. And thanks for arranging to have the meme while you're gone, we would all really miss it! Safe travels to you!

  41. I thought of you every time I passed a puddle this week! Unfortunately there wasn't much happening in the reflections of said puddles around here.
    Have a wonderful trip James. So cool of you to keep the meme up till you get back.
    Can't wait to see your photos too.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great shot! Was going to post a puddle myself, but decided instead to put up something from the other side of the Atlantic, where you'll soon be! Thanks for keeping this up while you're away—and have a wonderful trip!

  43. Your reflections are always so grandiose even though they might be just puddles or something really small. This was like the opera of Paris but in puddle, oh, and the autumn leafs were the icing on the cake.

  50. Jame, Thank yoy for leaving a wonderful comment (and for starting this wonderful meme - one of my favorites!)

    I want to post a response regarding photo size:
    I think good photos look good in any size.
    However there are many advantage to posting small format: the blog pages load faster and
    pirating of small pictures does no good to the thief - can't print or resell them as those sights require high resolution photos.
    If you have a great photo, consider posting it in smaller format for the above reasons :-)

    ReplyDelete
  51. This is definitely a great photo, one to remember you by until you return! You're still on my 'daily visit' list.

    I forgot where you said you were going....

  52. Hi James,

    Best regards

  53. Really awesome photo. I didn't know if was a reflection at first.

    On our trip to Europe I took 3000 photos. Took a long time to get through them all. If you have a chance be sure to get to the Alps or Austrian lake villages. Photo ops galore!

    BTW #60 is a wrong link, so sorry about that I corrected it in #61

  54. Oh my gosh, your reflections are amazing - each one is a jewel.

    ReplyDelete
  55. After so many words, I'll add only one more: excellent!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Wow! What a wonderful reflection you've captured and shared! After watching others share for several weeks, I've finally decided to participate for the first time at Small Reflections ... just because ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

    It is a work to be impressed with.

    Thank you for showing a wonderful view.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Breathtaking photo! That water is so clear i suspect is is really mirror!

    Have a safe, fun trip!

    ReplyDelete
  59. That shot's amazing; it took me a few moments to 'see' it properly; it seemed a crack in the sidewalk at first. Spectacular!

    Have a wonderful time on MY side of the Atlantic! LOL If you stop in Ireland it's been raining for months straight so we've got floods, puddles and reflections galore... paddle by and stop in.
