Le BHV (Weekend Reflections # 230)

Paris, France                       

One night last March I was watching ice skaters in front of l'hotel de ville (city hall) when I saw the BHV sign (BHV = Bazar de l'Hôtel de Ville) reflected in the ice. BHV is a department store.

Bon Weekend!

It is crazy to me how you get such a sharp focus on a great reflection in the midst of all that motion! Clearly, you are the master!! LOVE this place, too!

Un endroit qui me rappelle des souvenirs d'enfance.. Joli focus sur l'essentiel !

"Les grands esprits se rencontrent" James ; moi aussi, je poste une photo du BHV, mais de leur rayon luminaires. Tu as toujours l'oeil sûr pour voir les reflections.
bon week end à tous,

Oh, I know just the spot. Were you skating also or were you pushing the little cart with les petits?

Wonderful reflection, James, and I would love to be there now!

Bises,
Genie

Alexa said...

Like Genie, I know just the spot (maybe that's because we were there together last time)! Beautifully captured, James.

Love the motion on everything except the reflection of the green logo. Seems like the skater sees the same reflection and is trying to come to an abrupt stop before going over it!

Mama Zen said...

Cool catch!

I'm amazed how neat you managed to take this enlightened sign of the BHV, with green colors like those, it mustn't has been so easy... Great pic indeed, James.

The best reflections are the ones you don't see! When logged on and saw the skater, I said, "Where??"

A Quiet Corner said...

You are always in the right place at the right time, James!...:)JP

En France, un slogan publicitaire dit: 'On trouve tout à la Samaritaine '( autre magasin).
Mais je vois que tu l'appliques aussi au BHV !

PS: Je ne peux pas poster ma reflection - ça bloque -

Great one again James. I like the movement suggestion by the blurred skaters legs and the logo not blurred in between.

Viera said...

Wonderful reflection, James... very cute...

Norma Ruttan said...

great capture!
Is it just my computer that none of the thumbnails are showing on your site?

namaki said...

You definitely have got THE eye for reflections .... that's a good one !

Jo said...

Well captured as always, James. Have a great weekend. Jo

Lola said...

Bon weekend, James!

Lola said...

Moi encore une fois!

J'ai fait une erreur avec Linky!

Je ne pouvais pas montrer la photo de réflections que j'ai voulue montrer! Je regrette qu'elle est toujours chez mon blog!

ciao!

Ok, ça marche ! Posté !
