A reflection in the Crowd (Weekend Reflections # 107)

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I think this is what they call shooting from the hip. I was walking on a crowded sidewalk in Philadelphia last year when I noticed this mirror. I clicked off one quick shot and hoped for the best.
Thankfully no one bumped into me from behind and  this lady was in the perfect spot for a reflection.

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