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!

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

  2. 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.

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

  32. Astonishingly creepy picture, your building in a puddle.

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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.

  39. 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.

  42. 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...

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

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  48. 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...

  49. 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 !

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