Two Years of Reflections! (Weekend Reflections #105)

Newport Beach, California (Fashion Island)

You might have seen an animal jump through a ring of fire, but how about a fish swimming through a ring of water?  

Weekend Reflections # 1 was on this weekend in 2009! Thanks to all of you who've made it so fun over the last two years!

If needed, please click the link near the top right corner for Weekend Reflections instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

Very fashionable! And a great reflection! (But I don't think my wife would go for a big fish in the front yard.

What a clever way to share your sense of humor, James. And your night shot is again a stellar one.

Another great photo. I love how the arch of water in the fish mouths echo the arches in the architecture. Fabulous.

Looks like even the fish is reflected as it decides whether to swim through hoops or go around them. You certainly have a sharp eye for the strange and unusual happenings as light bounces all around you, and some of it gets into your visual field.

Major congratulations on the second reflections birthday, it's been lots of fun, and here's looking forward to another two years, minimum ! You put in a lot of hours, I know, to make this all happen, but it certainly has brought a lot of folks together here... GREAT JOB JAMES !!!
