Newtown Reflected (Weekend Reflections # 50)

Hello and Welcome to Weekend Reflections!

That is a nice and original picture of reflection, James : I wonder how can be used some of those twisted forks and spoons...

JM said...

Cool reflections and window display too.

Don't forget the reflections in the spoons! Very cool!

Sunny said...

Very cool, James! The reflections of the buildings and sky in the pitchers are really great!

James, I got a problem: someone has linked under my name , but it's not me! and so I can't write my own address! Help needed!!
(this person used the number 6)

Stickup Artist said...

How nice to have a Main Street lined with old brick buildings, parked cars, (parallel parking is hard if you're not used to it), and quaint shop windows like the one you show here dancing with detail and light. The reflections on the pitchers are awesome. Worlds within worlds within worlds...

Luis Gomez said...

Reflections over reflections! Very nice.

Malyss said...

Me again: I know who made the mistake, if you can, please only take off the wrong address. Thank you and sorry for the wrong alert!:) (It was surprising...)

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

Such multiple reflections are fascinating.

wenn said...

Malyss said...

Me once more :)
Thank you!

I wanted to tell that I like the idea of the "reflection in the reflection" of your picture!On the window, and then on the pots! It makes me think of the movie "Inception" (a dream inside of a dream inside of a dream..)
Great capture!

RuneE said...

You have multiple reflections here - almost beyond count.

Sylvia K said...

So many terrific reflections in one shot! I love it! Thanks as always, James, for the weekend fun! Hope you have a great Labor Day weekend!

There's a lot going on in that window! Have a great weekend!

Julie said...

This is like the old adage "Can't see the wood for the trees', James. The more I participate is this beaut meme, the more I see reflections everywhere!! Thank you soooo much for that pleasure ...

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

James, I dearly love the "reflections" of all that post! I agree with Julie in that the more I see the photos the more aware I am of "photographic opportunities" with reflections.

Lovely shot!

teresa said...

I like the double image effect in the reflection. very nice.

cieldequimper said...

You may have noticed that I too love window reflections :-)and this one is superb. The houses reflected in just the right place, a masterpiece!

Joanne said...

Love it! I also love the previous post, really beautiful:)

jeff campbell said...

Great capture James...I love the way it all kind of blends, and the multiple reflections are cool...Peace and blessings

Mama Zen said...

What a beautifully composed shot!

Thom said...

It is totally amazing what we see first and so on when we see something. And then when we see the photo you see even more. This is spectacular my friend. Very well done. And congrats on the USC win last night. We put up a good fight I thought :) Have a wonderful weekend :)

Gine said...

J'aime bien ce reflet ... original !

Sar@h said...

Multiple reflections in the same picture, great art !

Hilda said...

It was the other way around for me. :)

I like the miniature reflections! Very unique bouquets too.

John McDevitt said...

Nice one James...worlds within worlds and lovely colors and shapes.

Dimple said...

There is a lot in this shot, it begs for close observation. Nice!

Eden said...

Great reflection shot, James. Love it.

Eleonora said...

Beautiful and complex reflection, James! I love that there is so much going on there.

Ciao

katney said...

My first thought, before reading your text, was "Are you inside or outside?"

ruma said...

The reflection is very gentle.

It seems to float forth quietly from the depths of the window...

Lew said...

The big cities provide some grand reflections, but the small towns also have some interesting reflections. The miniature reflection within the big reflection is delightful!

Lily Hydrangea said...

This is amazing James! You really do have an eye for spotting the most interesting reflections.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

That's a cool picture! The window must be very nice and sparkling clean to make such a clear reflection.

Sara Chapman said...

That is some complex set of reflections. And the egret below is magnificent.

Gattina said...

Nice reflections ! I also have household things, lol !

Rinkly Rimes said...

What a superb conglomeration of reflections! With the smaller one very much the focal point.

Rosadimaggio63 said...

Hi James, mi piace molto la foto che hai postato...
Buona giornata.

Reader Wil said...

Great reflection! Have a nice weekend!

Dina said...

That's so cool. Love it.

Pagan Sphinx said...

That's an interesting window!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Very creative indeed!

Vernz said...

very pretty ... love that building reflected on the pot ...

Pam said...

James this is a great shot of the window and reflection of the opposite side of the street buildings.
Well done as always.
Have a lovely holiday weekend.

Kaori said...

What a lovely reflection! I like the spoons and forks facing every-which-way, too :D

Beth Niquette said...

Lately some window reflections have become boring to me--but this is absolutely stunning. What a beautiful picture--it fills my eyes.

michael said...

Yes, I like this kind of reflection that shows the interior and the reflection with no distracting building framing the shot.

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

A very captivating shot - plenty to look at and the jug
is the perfect focal point surrounded by a myriad of
images. Wow!

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

I came to back to look again. I like the way you have two reflections going on - kind of like life. We have big things to focus on and several smaller things along the way - delightful!

Cildemer said...

Reflections everywhere! Great shot!
Thanks for sharing:o)

Ann said...

I would like to buy the jug please. Where can I get it? The car looks like a bygone era too, Just like my dad's first car.

Kcalpesh said...

A complex reflection but such a masterly capture!! Awesome!!

Anne-Ma said...

Magnifique ! Plusieurs reflets se superposent dans la vitre, sur les pots. J'aime beaucoup.

Francisca said...

There's lots to look at here, James. I especially like the red brick building reflected twice.

BlossomFlowerGirl said...

A most rewarding photo, just when the eye alights on one thing, it is then drawn to another.

Quite unusual and really cool!

quilly said...

It took an excellent eye to find that reflection behind the reflections, yet here it is front and center in your photo. You framed this perfectly to make that little gem the "apple" of your shot. Well done.

Melissa B. said...

What a wonderful photo...bravo!

byron said...

James, you're attention to reflective detail is uncanny...

Nessa said...

The multiple levels of reflections are wonderful.
