Christmas Reflections (Weekend Reflections #14)

Reflection of a Christmas tree on the floor of a hotel lobby.



Another Christmas tree and more reflected on a wall on the hotel's 2nd floor.
Merry Christmas! I guess this will be for the die hard Weekend Reflectors and/or the people who received shiny Christmas presents.

Both of these reflections were taken at the hotel where we stayed in Munich.

"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!

I'm sharing a shiny aluminum Christmas tree today, so I guess I'm right there with the theme, huh? Merry Christmas!

awarewriter said...

A very Merry Christmas James. I like the subtle look of the first photo.

Dimple said...

Well, I don't know that I am a die-hard, and I didn't get any shiny presents, but I DID get a new camera a few days early!

Nice reflections!

Reflections ... for contemplation, meditation ... can life be reconstructed by looking at what we see on a mirror? What's wrong with ourself?

Are we flawless? As flawless and glossy as the pictures above? How is our soul reflected in the mirror of life?

Very meaningful theme and you have chosen it with care and wisdom.

Thank you James for all your kind support that help my blogging days colourful and worthwhile. I am very appreciative of your very generous visits and leaving me encouraging comments.

May you and wife Vicki will continue to live life abundantly as reflected in the pictures you above. A life that depicts prosperity and good health.

I tend to post pictures with philosophical ideas as to the concept of Reflections beyond the shadowy appurtenance of the theme.

All the best my friend.

Good reflection of the tree.

Once again, it's Christmas -
that delightful time of year
When hearts are filled with gratitude
and homes are bright with cheer.

When everyone's remembering
good friends and loved ones too -
So naturally, the warmest thoughts
and wishes go to you.

May your home be filled
with happiness,
your hearts with love,
your days with joy -
at Christmas and always.

Merry Christmas and have a wonderful holiday,
 
With love,
Merry Christamas and a Happy new Year,
MB, Maria Berg - Sweden

Malyss said...

In your first picture, it seems that the orange color is giving birth to the shape of the tree.. Magyc!

Very pretty James! I'm posting mine tomorrow.

Hello James,
Both are beautiful but I like the strong color in the second one.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
(It is still Christmas today.)

Cheryl said...

The first photo is extraordinary! Happy New Years!

Woody said...

clever reflection of the tree in the floor! I also really like the second shot! This whole reflection thing has me looking at photography from a different perspective. Thanks for doing this!

Tracy P. said...

Greetings! Melissa B. recommended your site when she stopped by and saw my Christmas reflection. Love the idea! Looking forward to seeing some others.

katney said...

Oh, my,James! Shiny Christmas presents. Shiny Christmas ornaments. I'm glad I am one who believes Christmas lasts at least till Epiphany--next week.

Halcyon said...

Nice reflections! Hope you had a great holiday!!

mbkatc230 said...

Love these shots, especially the first one. I find myself looking for reflections everywhere now! We were out yesterday and my daughter asked me why on earth I was taking a picture of a mud puddle lol. Have a great week. Kathy

Gallow said...

This is a great meme. Thank you for doing it.

Louis la Vache said...

Very clever!

tapirgal said...

Quite cool, James, it's not often we see reflections in floors. It makes a nice image.

Diane AZ said...

Beautiful and unusual Christmas tree reflected on the floor! I sure do enjoy your "Weekend Reflections." Happy New Year!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

James, what a coincidence! It does look quite like the floor in my reflection post today which is also at a hotel lobby but mine is in Malaysia.
