Spare Reflections (Weekend Reflections # 80)

Ivyland, PA (Tanner Brothers Dairy Farm) It's a reflection in a spare tire cover on the back of a car. The reflection is warped but there's a dairy farm with two silos, a wooden fence,cars,the sun in a blue sky,power lines,and me and my shadow. Speaking of me, my back is finally getting better! I'm still not able to sit or stand in one place very long but I am able to walk with much less pain and my pain is less overall. :) Happy Days are almost here again! I hope all is well with all of you. I'll stop by and say hello as much as I can. Have a great weekend! If needed, please click the link in the top right corner for Weekend Reflections instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

Fantastic! Well spotted, James!

A wonderfully enlivening photo. I enjoy the colours and the shapes and the glimpses of things (and you!) 'beyond'. One of my favourites.

Man! That's a lot of chrome!
Have a good weekend James (if your back will allow)...

Lucy Corrander said...

P.S. The first thing I looked for when I arrived on this post was to see how your back is - then I forgot to mention it here - so pleased it is easing up. Hope it is completely better soon.

A reflection quite different of the picture you shared with us those last contests, but it a very awesome one too ! Il like this kind of reflection distorsion : they let room for imagination...

Carolyn Ford said...

Firstly...I am glad you are feeling much better. It's not fun, I am sure! Secondly...this is such a great reflection...so much detail and so beautifully composed! I like how the tire cover fills the screen...a super duper photo, James!

Love the distortions in this image. Glad to hear your back is feeling a little better.

I love this! It's almost as if both car and truck will collide. Great stuff.

Dianne said...

I love warped ;)
the texture of the wheel does wonders for the farm reflection

I'm glad your pain is less and I hope you continue to get better

Mama Zen said...

What a "fun" reflection!!! Love it. Mickie

joo said...

Superb photo!
Have a nice weekend :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Artistic, distorted reflection! It transforms reality into a dreamscape! Great photo!

awarewriter said...

Neat shot James. I like the warped "colored pencil" character of the back of the cover. A modern continental kit. When I was a kid building model cars, they were always lowered in the rear and had the continental kit installed. I like 'em.

ρομπερτ said...

A rear-view looking forward in time.

Please have a good start into the weekend.

Well, James, your reflection is a fun one, and, yay, your back is behaving, but your linky is not! I keep getting an error message.

My reflection is here.

At 15:44 hrs, your Linky is having server problems.
Here's «Louis' post.

Very neat photo you posted, James. We hope your back is better!

Irene said...

Great shot! Wish you a great weekend!

Stickup Artist said...

Great news about your back! Your reflection looks like a little universe unto itself with the steely sky arching above the landscape, the star reflection a little sun. Have a wonderful week!

Louis la Vache said...

17:44 hrs PST.
Linky is working now.

lotusleaf said...

Wow! Reflection in a parabola!

The shapes and perspectives are so interesting here. It somehow makes a fun capture.

& you managed to capture quite a bit in this wheel cover, nice job James.

Lew said...

Glad you are feeling better! Love the chrome reflection. I looking forward to the return of the auto clubs soon.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Nifty chrome-y reflection. Glad to hear you're recuperating. It's a drag when our bodies don't cooperate with our will.

Gine said...

Comme un tableau ... c'est exceptionnel et beau !

Birdman said...

Strange where we sometimes find our reflected world.

Pat said...

Wonderful reflections in the spare tire cover! You were very perceptive to notice it--fantastic!

Great spare! Stay on the mend, James.

Alexa said...

Oops—thought my shot didn't post and wound up doing it twice.

I am in awe of the photo and the oh-so-shiny car!

Great capture. There are always things to see in unexpected places!

Sorry to feel you've been down, but glad to hear that your are feeling better!

Owen said...

Hey James, Glad to hear the back is on the mend... can't keep a good man down !

Only you could make a spare tire holder on a 4x4 look this good I think. Looking forward to seeing the results of you getting back out and around soon.

♥~Judy~♥ said...

Great reflection. It makes me think of the fun house mirrors.

Pat said...

What a different reflection! It's fun finding reflections in different objects! This is a great one!

Fabulous reflection. Love the entire landscape in there. And that's such great news about your back! Keep going onto full recovery.

I love distorted reflections, this one is awesome!

Beautiful reflections on the wheel guard replacement. A very attractive image.

Wow, that's a great reflection. Have to start experimenting with reflecting surfaces other than water!

Very creative, who would say that a black background would make sor such a neat reflection!
God bless you!

Lynette Killam said...

A great shot, James...I'm wondering how it would look cropped even tighter! The warping is gorgeous.

So glad your back is feeling better...:)
