In My Own Little Reflection World (Weekend Reflections # 173)

Costa Mesa, California (South Coast Plaza)

I saw this strange partially reflective orb in a shop at South Coast Plaza last year. I liked the warped reflection so I snapped a shot through the window. In case you were wondering I was wearing a red California Angels baseball cap. :-)


Have a great weekend!

That is such a cool orb ! I like it's design, half reflection, half black : it is so modern. It catch so well the universe all aroud it... It looks a bit like a gazing ball.

You have a nice cap on, James !

On a failli te voir, mais ton appareil photo te cache bien!
j'aime beaucoup les réflexions dans les sphères, la rondeur est toujours sympathique.

Thérèse said...

I should definitively start to understand more about baseball now that I have more time... but I must admit the length of the game gets in the way...
Une boule pleine de mystère!

I really like this! The round shape of the reflection is very cool! Good eye for catching this!

Yes, reflections are always kind of a world of its own. Thank you having this challenge. Please have a good weekend ahead.

Becky said...

So creative and way beyond cool!

A great snap, James. It looks like there are bubbles jumping from one orb to another! (Hope your team is on a winning streak!)

Almost like an extreme fish eye lens. - Margy

Nita Davis said...

Really cool shot. The reflection is wonderful however it is the overall composition that grabs my attention. It is almost as if the orb is just hovering. Great job.
