Café La Belle Férronnière (Weekend Reflections # 231)

Paris, France

Do you see the reflection? Look at the clock. It's not a reflection, but it's mounted on a large floor-to-ceiling mirror. Okay, now you see the reflection, right? The bar, the man stacking coffee cups and the table in front of the mirror are all reflections. In case you are wondering, I was on the floor above, just like the man you can see in the reflection above the bar on the right side of the clock. :-)

Have a great weekend!

Terrific photo. Looked at it for some time. Figured out the clock, but still elements of reflection and non-reflection were not clear. Perfect.

VERY,VERY COOL!

Alexa said...

There sure is a lot going on here, James. I love it. (And the icing on the gateau: it's Paris!)

Lew said...

You have a lot going in this reflection, and some of Paris street life also!

Love the geometric composition, how the image is broken up into separate squares by the architecture, as well as the cool pale colors of the outside vs. the warm, more intense tones of the reflection. The big round clock completes the geometry...

Great work!
Have a nice weekend!

Yet another shot that "takes me back" ... Paris cafes and mirrors go hand in hand. And the cups he's stacking - just stared at those for a few minutes! Didn't see many (any?)two story cafes I don't think - very cool perspective!! Bon Weekend!

TheChieftess said...

Sure doesn't look like a reflection!!! Nice one James!!!

Ruth Kelly said...

I like this kind of big mirror ; they do so much give a large perspective to a tiny room... Great rflection indeed, James.

Knew that you were at higher place than the worker, because it's a downward view (a benefit from painting):) A great reflection, James!

Nita Davis said...

That reflections is so real, or should that be surreal? Greetings from Jo, East Africa

I am glad you gave some explanation about the photo. I could never have imagined that the clock was attached on a mirror! Ingenious photo, excellent!

s.c said...

First thing I looked for the mirror image of the clock. It wasn't there. Then I read your explanation. Wonderful.
