Crossing Pont Saint Louis (Weekend Reflections # 207)

Paris, France  (looking down at wet concrete on a windy, rainy day)


This puddle reflection isn't as clear as last week's because the sidewalk surface is rougher, the wind was blowing and it was raining.

After I finished snapping pictures of their reflections, this group of tourists seemed a little confused. I just smiled and went on my way. :-)


 Have a great weekend!

Norma Ruttan said...

crystal clear or not, it's topnotch, James! it could pass as one of Monet's impressionist works (except for clothing) I'd love to have a copy of this for my wall!

Alexa said...

I'm loving this too—the big spots of color are fantastic!

This is a perfect rainy day reflection, James, raindrops and all. I love the colors and the composition, and the anonymous strolling pedestrians on the Pont Saint Louis.

Because of the colors, it's still a clear reflection for me! Some artists paint even blurrier than this, lol.

Nothing like confusing tourists! I do like the interest created by the less than smooth surface.

C'est tout simplement superbe, ce reflet de goudron mouillé, James... J'ai l'impression que tu n'as pas eu très beau temps tout au long de ce voyage, quand même... C'est pratique pour capturer des reflets, mais Paris sous la pluie, ça reste tristounet... ;)

It almost looks like a painting. Very creative of you!

Valerie said...

This is my favourite of your puddle shots. It reminds me of a pointilist painting.
