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.

Spiderdama said...

What a great shot and reflection. I really like reflctions true windows!
Have a nice weekend!

Riet said...

That is a great reflection photo. Could it be from eastern Europe?

Malyss said...

It looks like a puzzle in an other one: the reflection puzzle , framed with white, among the stones puzzle of the wall..The naked winter tree does not hide the blue sky behind..
A hundred reflections links?.. "We are the champions, my friend.."Ü
Thanks to YOU!

MOO said...

It's beautiful! That looks like some old glass.

This is a wonderful reflection, love the textures of the stonework and the pop of red under the window.
Sunny :)
Congrats on your record links!

RuneE said...

A nice one - and it fitted in very well with the pattern of the bricks.

marytomaselli said...

James, excellent contrast between the browns of the wall and the blue sky reflected in the windows... :) Mine's up! :)

Ebie said...

It looks like tic-tac-toe! The golden colored tree reflection is just gorgeous!

Thom said...

It is wonderful. It most certainly does look like it was painted on. Well done and just awesome. :)

Love it!
Mine’s here: Carletta’s Captures.

allhorsestuff said...

Oou...that is certainly a masterpiece! I love its stone outer frame and the splash of red! I chuckled too...when you could not remember where it had been taken!

Lew said...

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

Renee said...

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

Stine in Ontario said...

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

Coffeedoff said...

Lovely reflection!

Matty said...

Great analogy James. Two different puzzles.

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

Love this James. The blue of the sky is so pure, and the refracted reflections are great. And I love that beautiful stone work. Congrats on hitting 100 links!

ruma2008 said...

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

cieldequimper said...

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

Serline said...

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

Owen said...

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

Louise said...

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

Dina said...

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.

José Ramón said...

Very interesting this image.

Greetings from creativity and imagination photos of Jose Ramon

Tash said...

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

Rebecca said...

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.

Terri said...

That's really stunning, James.

Guy D said...

Wow, thats a fantastic reflection shot.

All the best

maiaT said...

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.

Diane AZ said...

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

B SQUARED said...

It really does look painted. Nice!

Greyscale Territory said...

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

SquirrelQueen said...

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.

eileeninmd said...

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

Yolanda said...

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

Ann said...

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

Hilda said...

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!

Denise said...

That is a superb photograph, just love it.

awarewriter said...

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.

Mama Zen said...

That is a stunning photo!

Evelyn Howard said...

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

Gallow said...

Spectacular. They look like mirrors.

ρομπερτ said...

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.

Woody said...

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

Becky and Gary said...

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

Cheryl said...

Awesome and beautiful!

Sara Chapman said...

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.

sunnymama said...

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

ilovepink1078 said...

James, I am so happy this meme has taken off so quickly, though I am not surprised! Your photos are always an inspiration & your positive energy is contagious in that you attract a lot of good people having fun with weekend reflections. Thanks for hosting this each week. I really enjoy it.
& I love the red strip of wood under this window. It adds the perfect touch of color to this interesting reflection.

Gattina said...

it looks so blue for a reflection !

Cezar and Léia said...

Another very well captured reflection, always a pleasure to see!
God bless you!
Cezar

Carolyn said...

Wonderful reflection. Texture, texture, texture. AND loved your caption!

VP said...

This is one of your best, you got a very good mix of colors and an amazing reflection. I love that wall!

Martha in PA said...

Beautiful!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

It looks just like painting on the window.

Jientje said...

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?

Pam said...

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

Halcyon said...

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!

VioletSky said...

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

Helena said...

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

Gunsside said...

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

Stickup Artist said...

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

Carolyn said...

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).
Carolyn

Anna said...

Surreal image.

wenn said...

happy weekend reflection!

ladyfi said...

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

Thérèse said...

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.

B : ) said...

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.

Nessa said...

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.

Mirror, Mirror

Buck said...

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

tapirgal said...

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? :)

happily retired gal said...

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,

Serendipity said...

I agree - it does look like a painting!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

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".

Carolyn said...

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

Ann said...

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

Bibi said...

Congrats on your reflections' 100+ posts! I didn't have a reflection last time, but will get looking! I like your puzzle window.
