Wow!! 5 years! I'm so glad I found you - this is something I look forward to each week...and that has given me another perspective as I walk and wander that I just love! I think that celebrating with a splash of Paris is just perfect! Chin chin! Et a votre sante!

Five years! Congratulations, James!
You've sure gotten a lot of people thinking about reflections over the years.
Just wish we had more water or more non-dust-covered surfaces here in the desert so I could have more reflections for you and the group.
Keep up the good work!

Five years and still a raging success ... you must be so proud. I went back to your first post from Philadelphia and it is amazing that todays post is very similar. I wasn't there five years ago, but I have enjoyed you for several years and plan to continue for many more. Thank you for inspiring our imaginations and letting us see a world that we might not have noticed had it not been for you. Congrats, James ... it has been well worth your efforts ...

Congrats for these 5. I like this meme. Sometimes very inspirational.

biebkriebels said...

Congratulations with your 5th celebration. You have one of the most succesful memes I think. I can't walk somewhere anymore without seeing a reflection in so many things, nature, homes, streets. They are everwhere!
Thank you so much for changing my view at objects.
