A Building on 4th Street (Weekend Reflections # 111)

Santa Ana, California (The top corner of a building reflected in a puddle)

If I would have started Weekend Reflections one week later, next week would would be Weekend Reflections #111 on 11-11-11. :)

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

I really love the way you framed the reflection in the puddle. The raggedy puddle edges make the building reflection look so cool!!!

111 on 11-11-11. That would have been cool. My former boss turns 65 next week and will retire at 11:11 a.m. on 11-11-11.

oh wow James, looks like a watercolor
even the white line from what I assume is a parking spot is perfectly placed
wonderful :)

You're the master of puddle reflections. Cool subject and composition, James. Oh, go ahead, cheat, call next week 111 too, no one but us will notice... LOL!

It's definitely 'my' kind of photo - world up side down! I love it:)

Gemma Wiseman said...

The reflection creates a visual of an underwater building! Fascinating!

Astonishingly creepy picture, your building in a puddle.

Dorian Susan said...

Love this puddle shot James....getting the line on the road-classic.
Had you started weekend reflections later, think of all the reflections that would have gone unshared. I think you're good right where you are.

Incroyable photo! Merci, James. Have a great weekend.

Great one again James. Love it

Phyllis said...

Hi James,

Whne I first lookd at this photo I was intrigued and confused until I scrolled down to read that the reflection was in a puddle. How cool! The reflection is blurry, like it has motion to it, and yet at the same time so sharp...(if that makes any sense) Happy Weekend. PS - we had our first snow here in Massachusetts!! Holloween pumpkins were covered in snow.

Leovi said...

Impressive reflection, a very dreamlike.

Elisa said...

Well done James!
Have a nice weekend

Deb said...

now that is cool.....

Joanne said...

Magnificent:)

Stickup Artist said...

It's amazing how you managed to get the entire top corner of the building in there so perfectly at the edge of the puddle! It's almost like the earth cracked open and we find another duplicate world underneath...

I love puddle reflections. This one is just great.
It sure is hard to decide which pic to post. MB

Dina said...

Oh wow, it's a rip, a tear in reality. Love it!

Jan Halvard said...

A great shot! :-)

What a neat capture, James!

Your header is fantastic! I love the reflections we can sometimes find in a puddle.

Sivinden said...

At first sight it looked as if some rough paper was torn aside to reveal the building. Great image!

Thérèse said...

A good catch of this building which otherwise would perhaps not have found a worthy place on your blog...

Owen said...

I skimmed through the preceeding comments expecting to see someone saying something about "Positively 4th Street", but don't see any references to that other 4th Street, so, there is no doubt, this is positively 4th street, a fine mirrored puddle there for sure. Must be a rainy day reflection, or at least the aftermath... like "Rainy Day Woman" from the same source...

Owen said...

Oh, and am kicking myself for missing last week, work has been crazy of late, but anyway, my iconic face here sends a belated greeting to the skeletal reflection in last week's photo, which was well spotted, well seen... you have the eye !

namaki said...

Great job ! this was quite a clean puddle, wasn't it ?
