Surrealistic Reflectionism (Weekend Reflections # 22)

I like this photo but I think it would have been better if there was a person looking at the camera from one of the windows. Come to think of it they would be looking at my back since the building is a reflection. The gold ring in this picture is a big antique flood light perhaps from a lighthouse or old ship. It is inside of the antique store so it's not a reflection.

  1. Maybe you could be counted as a Lord of Ring? :-)

    PS "My" duck was probably standing on submerged ice. There is no sand - just ice and water.

  3. Dear Lord of the Ring, Ü
    I prefer your picture that way, without anyone. A face would attract the eyes; Here ,there are only graphic and geometric lines and circles, the look is lost in the picture,rebounding on the frame, and therefore jumps into dream and imagination..
    Greetings from the Shire!

  13. I like the idea, one could see many things here, or not, which is the purpose of an surrealistic work. My preference is for the pattern of square windows behind the vanishing ring...

  14. I think if there would have been a person looking out of one of the windows it would have given it a haunting look. Nice photo!

  15. Having read about the Chinese New Year last week I discovered that the circle expresses the shape of Heaven...
    Perfect match.

  16. So much to contemplate here! I love the circle sneaking in there. What a great find, James!

  17. You had fun getting this shot, eh? :)

  18. Fascinating reflection! Love the detail and how the whole reflection seems to be captured in a gentle wave motion!

  19. This looks like an old police files image from the '20s James. Very good effects.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Am I the only one wondering what that circle is? Am I the only one who doesn't get it? It looks like the frame of a mirror — or a monocle! Argh. I hate mysteries (until I get to the ending). ;)

    Looks like this building and the one it's reflecting have very pretty details.

    I hope you have a great weekend, James!

  21. James, it is a wonderful shot, lots going on there!

  22. It is a very fascinating reflection.
    I seem to be breathed in in this reflection.

  23. Agree, that Dali couldn't have made it better.
    As it is already close to twenty past four in the morning over here, I'd like to return tomorrow with a reflection as well. Please have a wonderful start into the weekend.
    p.s.: guess if my credit card would allow, I would have bought it.

  24. Amazing, complex reflection shot James. I do see a person in one of the windows - is that you? To answer your question, I have no idea what the bird was. I know it was a hawk, but I think it's too big for a red tail? I was just happy to catch him! Kathy

  25. Wow this shot looks like the cover of a mystery book or a movie poster.... I agree tho the face peeking out of the window would have been awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love this beautiful design you have created in this reflection.
    Thanks for hosting this meme James.

  38. Dear James, sorry for the multiple links. You can delete number 97 (It has the wrong URL).

    Also, fantastic shot. Totally love it.

  39. Hi, this is my first time joining in on Weekend Reflections. I love seeing all the reflection photos, including your amazingly artistic one :)

  40. «Louis», back for a second look - this does have a bit of a Salvador Dali feel to it!

  41. This is just too cool. It is like a spotlight overwhelmed. I love the emotion of this pic -- it is as if you caught a scene from the past.

  42. Oh, I like this photo too. Really captures the quality of the historical, served us well for many years, sturdy row home, unlike it's gentrified counterpart, the townhouse. Has such a dreamy liquid quality and I particularly like the scrollwork on the cast iron vertical element in the foreground. Well done.

  43. A fine reflection image, James and yes, with a surrealistic quality.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love this reflection but I'm having Twilight Zone flashbacks!

    Great catch and a great photo.

  45. Great reflection! Apologies for such a late comment - I've had a really rough week.
