Resting Reflection (Weekend Reflections # 108)

Newport Beach, California (Balboa Island)

The guy in the reflection said "I can move if you want me to" and I said please don't because that would ruin the picture.  I bet he was a little confused and I don't blame him. :)

Hi James,
I haven't been here in awhile so it's nice to be back!
I guess you might say the fellow in your shot has his head in the clouds. :)
A wonderful capture!

Pat Tillett said...

Very nice! The guy was the unwitting star of the show.

Laerte Pupo said...

Beautiful shot.

Malyss said...

Seeing the angle from which you must have taken this picture, I guess the guy was really wondering what you were doing!! :o)
But the result was worth of all that confusion! Have a nice week-end, dear James!

What a great shot!! I love the sky reflection as well as the "very accomodating guy" in the pic. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

Woody said...

It's nice that he offered! Often, you get blank stares (or worse). Neat capture.

Cheri said...

Your eye is sharper than ever James. This is marvelous! I really like the dynamics and the reflection is perfect.

Ebie said...

Great angle! Love the colors on this photograph, kind of a gloomy but cloudy!

Dina said...

Yep, we crazy bloggers can be quite confusing.

JM said...

What a great capture, James! Well done.

Ruth said...

I'm glad to be joining you this week.
Yours is a very clear reflection.

Blessings!

MarieElizabeth said...

I like that you can see more of the person in the reflection than the rest of the shot. Really neat framing.

Leovi said...

Delicious reflection in the pond, a beautiful image, like a poem.

NatureFootstep said...

That I call a great shot. :) And really mean it. :) Love the image in the puddle.

EG Wow said...

Oh well, I guess he didn't know how great reflections can be!

Jill said...

This is fantastic!

Karen said...

Good one! Guess he didn't notice his own reflection.

Andy said...

Your are right. Without the person in the reflection the photo would be pretty simple.

Dianne said...

I love the caption on this one James - Resting Reflection - very apt!

Dorian Susan said...

Great puddle shot James. How cool that he was kind enough to ask, yet clueless enough to know that it was all about him. I like those snappy sneakers too!

Carola said...

Cool! Great reflection, awesome shot. And very interesting to only see the man in the patch.

Mama Zen said...

Great capture!

joo said...

That's a great reflection with a nice blue sky after rain :)

tapirgal said...

Outstanding composition, James. I like the lilt of the figure in the back as much as I like the legs in the middle ground.

Valerie said...

Yet another imaginative capture James! Many thanks for hosting this site so we can all enjoy the creativity of fellow photographers.

great shot!!!

Kay L. Davies said...

Oh, that's funny, James. He probably wondered about that for ages afterward.

Extraordinary picture! Good that the guy didn't move.

Louis la Vache said...

That is a really superb capture, James!

Owen said...

Could almost imagine that was Forrest Gump sitting there, a little confused... and I guess the woman in shorts or a short skirt (?) in the background was just an accident, right ?

Have a great weekend James...

Nature Rambles said...

So sweet of the guy! That made a great picture!!

Red Nomad OZ said...

Did he know he was going to become an internet star (albeit unrecognisable)??!! Have a great weekend!

Karl said...

Well seen and framed!

Wind said...

My best regards from Romania!

Eleonora said...

Ciao from Roma

Fortunately he sits on the little wall ! Very nice reflection !

Michaele said...

More than happy to get out of your way so you could photograph the ground haha Love the clouds.

Sara Chapman said...

I enjoy your work so much. This one made me smile. It's all about the angle, isn't it? Nice work! And the woman's legs add a special touch.

Ann said...

Kathryn Dyche Dechairo said...
