The Bike Rider (Weekend Reflections # 106)

Huntington Beach, California

The guy was across the street and behind my back but I managed to capture his reflection in this window. He almost got away because he was going pretty fast. :)

Here are some hints that show that this is a reflection.
1)The horizontal blinds (look at the lower left side) where they are the most clear.
2)The vertical wooden window frame on the right.
3)My shirt sleeve and the trees on the right but just to the left of the window frame.

  12. You must work quickly James.

    I just got back from a ride on my bicycle. I should try a shot in my rear view mirror. Might be tough since the mirror attaches to my eyeglasses. LOL

  31. The picture is so perfect that it's hard to believe it's "only" a reflection!

    About your question: yes, it was Cathedrale Sainte Reparate. I'm happy to discover that you can watch things about Nice on your TV!Just wondering how the town was shown..

  36. What a shot! Hard to believe it is a reflection with the clarity of the bike-rider, a great reflection shot indeed.
    It invokes the clarity and fuzzziness around the edges of a dream.

  37. Very clever James! It's a reflection, but at first sight I didn't believe it! It's beautiful!!
