Actually I prefer the reflection to the painting on the wall itself!

Woody said...

Funny, I like it!

Any way to edit the linky? When I created the link, I got a server exception, so I tried several times. Unknown to me, it created the link 4 times :-(

Dianne said...

Fantastic mural, marvelous reflection.

GinaLaughed said...

What a great shot! I can't help but love it being that I am a native New Mexican. (Not Native American) I also have to say that I'm a teeny bit green eyed today. I'd love to be in Northern NM again. I'd also love to visit Orange County again. My hubby grew up there and we lived there many years. *sigh* I'll just have to be content with sweet Tennessee. Enjoy the salt air for me today....oh, and a couple of fish tacos too! :)

Alexa said...

Wonderful! Glad you made it safe and sound (and apparently had lots of fun on the way). Sorry I had to enter twice—messed up the cropping the first time. :~{

AMALTEA said...

It looks like a pharaon or the sister of Nefertiti. Is very colorful and kitsch.

Leanne said...

Very cool photo.

Carol said...

Great shot! Just discovered you and will love tagging along :)

Gemma Wiseman said...

A lively, unusual character that certainly captures the eye! The reflection doubles the drama beautifully!

fjällripan said...

A great shot, James...I find New Mexico to be an endless source of photo ops!

Can't wait to see what reflection shots you found in the course of moving across country...:)

Good luck in your new home.

Dorian Susan said...

This is a fun reflection. I also like the blinds in the window...the line creating interest on the reflection's canvas. Hope all is well in your new digs.

Rosie@travel-i-tales said...

Sorry James, there are 4 submissions of the same post because each time I clicked on the linky page on a photo, it said error. Didn't know till the fourth time that the images were submitted after all. Do delete 3 of them, please.
