The Sun and the Moon (Weekend Reflections # 19)

I went in for a closer look at the interesting house that I posted yesterday. When I entered the alley I saw a shallow puddle of water and in the water I saw the subtle reflection of the moon and sun from the house. I rotated it for better viewing. You might have to stare at it a little but I think it's pretty neat the way they fit right into the little puddle. I'm glad that I noticed them.

Rebecca said...

ha ha...you had me studying the photo for a little bit there in search of the sun and moon. I am unprepared again. :( I will just link to a photo from earlier this week.

Diane AZ said...

The sun and moon are a great fit for the puddle and I like how the colors turned out colors too!

Luis Gomez said...

Perfect! Very nice shot. Good capture.

RuneE said...

You shouldn't overlook the pattern in the rest of the photos - you have e nice abstraction here.

Olivier said...

Original comme reflet, bien trouvé

awarewriter said...

Very nice James. I really like the abstract quality of this one. And yes, I can see the sun and the moon reflections after studying the photo for a minute.

Malyss said...

The echo of yesterday's photo.. It seems to be a modern art painting!A creative abstraction.

Carolyn Ford said...

That is so unique!...only in California! I hope you didn't step in that puddle! Love it!

Woody said...

Very slick! Great eye!

Icy BC said...

I saw them also, and the colors are awesome in the puddle!

Mama Zen said...

Nice catch!

Pat said...

I see the moon and the moon sees me! LOL! Great catch! Saw the sun, too!

Eden said...

I saw them too. Great shot, James!

cieldequimper said...

I'm glad you posted the original yesterday, this is great! Enjoy the weekend!

Ai Shiang said...

Hello James, how are you?

At first, I thought this photo was a trick :o). After a couple of seconds I did see the sun and the moon :o)

The puddle is drying up.

mbkatc230 said...

Great catch! I loved comparing this to yesterday's photo. I think I would have missed this entirely! Kathy

raf said...

Ah, a soft subtle touch like that makes a remarkable image. Well done, James!

Pam said...

Oh, now I see the light and great reflection of the wonderful sun and moon from your previous post.
Nice surprise, James.
Enjoy your weekend :)

eileeninmd said...

James, Wonderful captures of the sun and moon. Have a great weekend!

Hilda said...

Well spotted!
Have a happy weekend, James!

I did not understand what reflected me well,
when I looked first.

So. "Profound of universe" was reflected back there.

It may have changed more mysteriously than the real thing.

wenn said...

lovely reflection!

ρομπερτ said...

It would indeed be nice, if it would rain leafes and flowers - even if just for a moment.

Please have a wonderful start into the weekend.

Becky and Gary said...

You DO have a good eye! I had to concentrate for a minute, but think I do see it.
Have a great week-end.
B.

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

You certainly have a good eye for unique reflections. Ever since joining this meme, I have seen so many aspects of reflections I have never noticed before.

Lily Hydrangea said...

I enjoyed trying to see what was in the reflection and then suddenly recognizing the images from the previous days post. Nicely done James.
Thanks for hosting this.
: )

diane said...

It took a while but then it came to me. Tricky shot.

Regina said...

Nice and cool!
I thought I was here:)(So sleepy then)
Enjoy the weekend.

VP said...

You was right, yesterday detail helps to catch a volatile and quite imaginative reflection.

Evelyn Howard said...

I like the different textures in the photo.

Moira said...

Fiendishly clever!

MOO said...

Awesome! And the house from your previous post is so Cali-like, isn't it?

Dianne said...

I went back to check out the house and then it was easier to see them

very cool capture :)

I posted my first Weekend Reflection today

maryt/theteach said...

Perfect capture, James! In that little space... Mine is up! :)

Tash said...

Very tender & sentimental photo.

Cheryl said...

This photo is fantastic!

imac said...

Natty piece of Art work and reflections.

Josie Ray said...

Oh, funny. I didn't see them until you pointed them out. What did people think of you taking pics of a mud puddle? :-) I had the neighbors staring today, taking pics out in the snowy yard.

Sara Chapman said...

Yes, I did have to stare for a moment. Neat one! Good seeing.

Serendipity said...

Oh that's lovely! The colours are just right.

happilyretired said...

I'm glad you noticed them too ... very kewl shot! I would have added my link this morning, but I missed this post earlier since it didn't have the label 'Weekend Reflections' ... glad I found it this evening. I've been away from the computer all day and am pretty much exhausted so I guess I'll be visiting everyone tomorrow ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Carolyn said...

James, I messed up on my title for my first Weekend Reflection. How can I correct it?

Dina said...

Ha, nice find. I rather prefer that sun and moon in this subdued version of them. :)

Martha in PA said...

Very subtle and very cool. I need to get out and find some reflection shots. They just haven't presented themselves to me recently! I will be back to play along soon. This post has really taken off - kudos for the idea!

Christine said...

Ahhh! Now I see them. Very cool shot. I'm happy to have found your site and will be joining in Weekend Reflection.

Quilldancer said...

Very subtle -- and very cool!

I have your blog in my reader but iot never seems to update. I'll have to reinstall you after church!

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

very creative!

Carolyn said...

Thank you for changing my first title. Would you mind making it Oakland Daily Photo? I'd do it myself but can't seem to figure out how. Thanks also for your encouraging comments. This is going to be fun.

Jientje said...

Like I said earlier, you have a great eye!

Hannah said...

Oh, I love this! The sun and moon have turned terrestrial. :D This photo makes me smile.
