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!

  32. 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 !!!
