Newtown Barn Reflection (Weekend Reflections #8)

This barn is now being used as a garage.

So far Weekend Reflections has gotten bigger every week. Thank you to everyone who participates!
I think it's great seeing all of the reflections. My goal is to comment on every single Weekend Reflection post by Sunday night. As far as I know that's what I've done so far. I also like the challenge of finding reflections to post.

"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!

Thanks James, you're a great host...it wouldn't be that much bigger if you weren't. This is a cool shot, as always. Have a happy weekend and hope your back is now well.

Carletta said...

Hope you're doing well.

Is this what I think? I've seen this big mirror while driving in the canyons and other expensive areas in the City for traffic purposes.
This is a beautiful shot!
You are doing a great job James as a host, and it is always a great pleasure visiting and seeing your nice work. Keep up the good work and take care of your back.

Thanks so much for starting and hosting such a fun meme. I'm having the best time. I look forward to Friday so I can play. I had my post ready to go last night. Is it soup yet????

Lois said...

This is a good one James! It could also double as a SkyWatch Friday post.

Malyss said...

A good host makes a good meme!
I like the kind of mirror you posted, they are like bubbles among the landscape, a piece of world among an other world!

We have mirrors on what are known as "blind driveways" but keeping them clean is always a problem.

I just found out that my comment on your photo is not here. So I will post again. That is a beautiful reflection photo from the mirror of your car? I just wrote an explanation in my blog about one of the photo's I posted . I hope people will see what it is all about.The stream is made by nature. Would you care to look again if you can find the time?
Have a good weekend.

Very Nice,

I am having a go at it this weekend, My friends Thom and Cindy play the game every weekend and it looks like fun.

maryt/theteach said...

James, that's an extraordinary photo of reflection! thanks for hosting! Mine's up and waiting! :)

Riet said...

TRhank you for looking at my blog again. We call those grounds near the river willow grounds. There are only a few left in Holland. In my first post for weekend reflections I had a photo of the little willow path. That path is always dry, the water gets to the young trees. The willow toes are still used for basket weaving. I must about this some other time.

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

An appropriate and great shot. Happy Weekend Reflections to everyone.

Icy BC said...

That's an awesome reflection photo, James!

Jan said...

James, I love your reflection. The angle is so "odd", it had me squinting. You've done a great job with this meme.

Ai Shiang said...

Awesome, awesome reflection image! Intense colours too. I haven't had the chance to shoot late. If I do, I hope I remember to try on some reflection shots.

Becky and Gary said...

James, this is an awesome shot! The colors are so crisp, and what a cool image.

kaye said...

very creative--whenever I shoot into a mirror I just get my hand and the camera :)

Lily Hydrangea said...

This is really fun & I also enjoy seeing everyone's different reflections too.
I find myself looking for them in all kinds of places. This morning I saw one in my coffee, though it wasn't that interesting!
Wonderful shot James! & thank you again for hosting.

quilly said...

You must have planned that shot! Your sideview mirror is shiny clean! (And so is the shot. Nicely done.)

diane said...

Clever shot and very well done. Thanks for hosting such a popular meme.

SquirrelQueen said...

Very nice shot, I love that old barn. I've been seeing your meme around for awhile and thought it would be fun.

Sunny said...

Very creative!
I've really got to get my act together and get some reflection pictures!
Sunny :)

Dimple said...

Good job! Those round mirrors give a nice reflection...

Martha in PA said...

Great shot! I need to get some reflection photos. Headed to the Acad of Natural Science downtown tomorrow. Hopefully we will arrive a little early and I will have some time to get some urban shots outside before we meet our blog friends to celebrate a little dinosaur lover's birthday!

Barbara Martin said...

An innovative shot. I like when older buildings are put to new uses.

Susan at Stony River said...

I love that photo. What a beautiful way to shoot the barn!

Vogon Poet said...

Wonderful image, I love this kind of shot and you have really found a perfect mirror.

awarewriter said...

Hi James,

I figured this was as good a place as any to let you know what I'm up to. You've commented that you are experimenting with converting color images to B&W. I found a nice slide that I'm using for my monday macro this week. Just because I had to know, I converted the color image to B&W. It worked out quite well.

I've decided to do a tutorial for Monday, illustrating how I made the conversion.

I usually post my monday post late Sunday evening. Of course it should be there bright and early Monday.

Nicole said...

Perfect shot!
Love the clarity,detail and the colours!

Reader Wil said...

You have created such a wonderful meme, that you need a lot of to visit everybody, James! Thanks anyway for this brilliant idea!

Carol said...

Thats a cool shot... and a nice looking barn. James, I have the creative blogger award I would like to pass on to you. I realize that some people don't like to get these awards etc...but I had to include you because you have been an inspiration to me. I started following your blog when you lived in Irving , before I was even a blogger, and you have helped me without even knowing....

Diane AZ said...

Beautifully creative shot! I love how the mirror gives the barn a round frame.

Louis la Vache said...

Excellent interpretation of the Weekend Reflection meme!

Re your comment at San Francisco Bay Daily Photo, yes, «Louis et Mme la Vache» live in the high-rise condos facing the Bay on the west side of Albany Hill.

mbkatc230 said...

What a great clear shot! I really love the way it looks almost like a fish eye lens. Thanks for hosting this, it's alot of fun and I'm looking at things differently looking for reflections. Kathy
