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!

Olivier said...

Magnifique cette photo, j'adore ce reflet dans l'eau

Diane AZ said...

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.

Thérèse said...

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

Bon voyage!
Viel Spaß!

ER said...

Fantastic reflection, James. It looks like the city during a parade with confetti drifting down! It's a hop, skip and a jump to my side of the pond...have a wonderful and safe trip, James. Looking forward to all your photos when you return. Lizzy :)

mbkatc230 said...

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! Kathy

Neat find!
Between curb and street
there are buildings, trees and sky.
Gutter reflection.

Becky and Gary said...

One of the best I've seen James. Beautiful reflection.
We will miss you. Take care.

Hilda said...

My brain can't process the angle, but the reflection is great!

Have a wonderful trip, James! Take care and stay safe too. I'll be looking forward to your vacation pics!

Lily Hydrangea said...

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.

Alexa said...

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!

chrome3d said...

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.

Chin said...

What a wonderful reflections!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

You have a great reflection picture here. It looks so unreal. That's great. Wishing you a wonderful and safe journey.

I will be jealous of THAT reflection for EVER and EVER! Amen! That is just awesome.

Enjoy your trip!

Quilt Works said...

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 :-)

Bibi said...

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....

Asta said...

Hi James,

Lovely shot!

I hope you'll have a wonderful trip and come back with tons of pictures-:)

Best regards
Asta

Rebecca said...

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

Tash said...

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

Vogon Poet said...

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

storyteller said...

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,

ruma2008 said...

Leaves do splendid description for a slightly crooked reflection.

It is a work to be impressed with.

Thank you for showing a wonderful view.

Quilldancer said...

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

Have a safe, fun trip!

Susan at Stony River said...

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.
;-)

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

A really amazing shot, simply wonderful. I like the building and the leaves gently flling.
