Puzzled Reflection (Weekend Reflections # 23)

I think this reflection looks very unusual almost like it was painted onto the window. I think the reflection looks sort of like a puzzle that's not quite put together. It's also a puzzle because I can't remember where I took the picture.

  18. That is a great shot! The disjointed limbs that are not reflected by the wood do give it an interesting effect.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love this for all the right reasons: BLUE SKY! (and nice composition)

    ReplyDelete
  20. HaHa! I can relate to sometimes taking a photo and then not remembering where I took it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great analogy James. Two different puzzles.

    I have a new blog just for photography. Started it yesterday.

  23. This reflection is totally oil painting.
    The obstacle of the stone is a frame.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Like a door into a story. Your snow photos were absolutely amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love the strong contrast on the textures and colors. Great reflection and that blue is beautiful...Nice shot!

  26. Well, wherever it came from it's beautiful... looks like old colonial stone... Have a great weekend James !

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lovely shot. I love the way old glass has a free spirit when it comes to reflecting things!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I see what you mean. Strange about that.
    Funny that you don't remember where it's from. :)

    It reflects well on your gracious hosting that the meme has grown so fast.

    ReplyDelete

  30. The reflection is just like you reflected upon. The wall is exceptionally pretty too.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The blue is so intense amid the neutral color of the stone. It really draws your eye. It kind of reminds me of a rubics cube.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's really stunning, James.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, thats a fantastic reflection shot.

    All the best

  34. The reflection in the old window is perfect and the colors are amazing. I also like the clear details on the stone masonry.
    To forget where you took the picture that happens sometimes with me too.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great colors! The golden color of the trees goes with some of the mortar between the rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It really does look painted. Nice!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Beautiful, vibrant reflection in contrast to the roughly hewn textures of the brick work! It does look so much like a painted puzzle!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love window reflections and this one is especially great. The blue of the sky makes a great contrast to the stone work of the building. The weathered window frame is wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  39. James, wonderful puzzle reflection. Love the tree and blue sky.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think the wonderful distortion in reflection is what makes them so interesting and intriguing! Nicely done!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Beautiful clear reflection. Must be an attractive building with that stonework.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You're right, it does look like a sliding puzzle! Cute. I never could solve those things…

    Too bad you can't remember where this is though because I was going to ask if you could take a photo of the entire house — I love the stonework!

    Congratulations on the growing participants! That's wonderful news! We owe you thanks too for setting up this fun meme. :)

    Happy weekend, James!

    ReplyDelete
  43. That is a superb photograph, just love it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm not sure which elements I like best James. The reflection is great, the stonework is fantastic and I love the old window. Nice work.

    I'm late today. We didn't get as much snow as the northern and western suburbs this time. I didn't have a lot of shoveling to do. Enough is enough already.

    ReplyDelete
  45. A nice photo, lovely blue sky, and a nice window..

    ReplyDelete
  46. Spectacular. They look like mirrors.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Luckily it has twelve pieces, which allows it to be solved.

    Indeed a wonderful play of light and its result. Please have a wonderful start into the weekend and a very honest thank you for providing the challenge to find reflections, something which indeed helps to get through the day and night.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I hope you remember where, 'cause I'm guessing there are more good opportunities there! The branches are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  49. What an awesome reflection James. I just love it. Love the stone walls, the blue sky, and those tree branches really complete this picture!

  50. Congratulations on 100 links. A great meme, absolutely. Many people are inspired by your suggestion to focus on reflections!

    This one is very lovely. I like the brilliant blue of the sky, especially! While we are not blizzarding here in Seattle, it sure is gray, cold and wet.

    ReplyDelete
  51. What a great shot! Love the colours and the puzzling reflection. :)

    ReplyDelete

    & I love the red strip of wood under this window. It adds the perfect touch of color to this interesting reflection.

    ReplyDelete
  58. It looks just like painting on the window.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Like painted on the window ... exactly what I thought when I posted mine. I love your puzzle, and the blue sky that's in it. Blue skies always add to whatever it is you're photographing, don't they?

    ReplyDelete
  60. I like the colorful blue sky reflecting in window. The tree dose look like a puzzle and you captured it perfectly, James.

    ReplyDelete
  61. This is a really neat reflection. It dies look almost like a painting. Especially with the contrast of the rock wall. Great reflection and happy weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Love the stonework surrounding the framed window "painting". And the red sill is a brilliant addition.

    ReplyDelete
  63. What a great reflection shot! It really does look like a puzzle, and the blue of the sky is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Very nice reflections, and it look like a puzle,yes ;)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Good Eye Again. I love the stark bright red strip of paint at the bottom of the window emphasizing and underlining the liquid reflection.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi James,

    Apparently I made an error in the link to my reflections photo. Can you change the link to: http://oaklanddailyphoto.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for your help (again).

  67. Wow - the old stone and the reflected blue sky makes for an amazing photo!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Nice puzzle James and congratulations for the second milestones...
    The puzzle is indeed a puzzle and with some time and photoshop you could even shuffle the pieces... :)
    Sorry not enough time to post these days.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wherever you took it, it's gorgeous. We don't have lovely old things like that in Florida. I guess the State gets so sick of old people they make up for it by destroying old things.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love the way the lines of the trees break up the straight lines of the window frame and the contrast of the clear smooth blue of the sky with the rough reddish stones.

  71. Beautiful! Love the contrast between the reflection and the stone.

    ReplyDelete
  72. The images and colors are fantastic. I love the color of the reflected sky! The ochre branches echo the mortar between the stones. And yes, isn't it irritating when you can remember where you too it? :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Beautiful reflection of these bare trees against the clear blue skies ... love the brick building too! I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who forgets where I took pictures ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,

    ReplyDelete
  74. I agree - it does look like a painting!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thank you for hosting this fun meme. I've browsed around in it before but this is my first post to it. I love the idea because it shows so many new and different ways to "see".

    ReplyDelete
  76. Great reflection shot! I love the combination of the stone and the beautiful blue sky reflection. Thank you for sharing.

  77. Is the sky blue or the glass blue. The reflection of the trees show that winter is still here, so sign og any buds.

    ReplyDelete
