The Longhorn Saloon (Weekend Reflections # 155)

Fort Worth, Texas

This is a sign that is shaped like a bull reflected in the window of a saloon. I didn't go in but I can imagine the sounds of spurs on a wooden floor, whiskey-drinking cowboys and bar fights. I've probably watched too many old movies, but I'm okay with that. :)  
In case you're wondering what's on the right side of the photo, there's a cowboy painted on the window. It looks like the bull reflection is jumping over the cowboy's eye.

Have a great weekend!

Another masterful reflection, James! When I watched Westerns as a kid, I always wondered how they locked those swinging doors (a sure sign that I grew up in a big city).

I heard the same echoes from that saloon in my imagination! What a wonderful reflection.

Is that cowboy Woody from Toy Story painted on the window? Cool reflection. I like the reflected bull jumping over the cowboy painted on the window.

Very nice James. Interesting also!

Would not have known this was a reflection if the words had not been backwards. Great Capture.

Great reflection of the longhorn. The mirror image of the letters gives it away otherwise you could think that you are looking trough glass instead.

I can hear the faint sound of the bull urging the others to get out of his way! great reflection AND sign!

I'm sure I wouldn't be able to pass up this saloon! Sounds intriguing. :)

When I first saw it, I said "Moo"! Looks like the cow jumping over the moon! Whatever, it makes a VERY good photo!

I like the backwards words. You don't realize it's a reflection until you see that!

(Personally, I don't like going into bars or movies on a bright sunny day. That period of adjustment moving from those dark environments into daylight is so uncomfortable).

Sawdust on the floor and spittoons ? Didn't quite make it with a reflection this time around, but have some waiting still... maybe next weekend...
