Smoking in the Window (Weekend Reflections # 275)

Versailles, France

Can you see the reflection? 
You should be able to because this photo is 100% reflection. :-) 
Everything you see here was across the street and behind me but reflected in a store window in front of me. 

I love Versailles! My wife and I spent a wonderful afternoon and evening there with Madame VDP. If you haven't seen VDP's excellent blog you should check it out! Versailles Daily Photo

As far as I know VDP is the only person who has taken a picture of me while I was taking a picture for Weekend Reflections. I'll share that picture next week.

Happy New Year!!!

Such a crystal clear reflection - it's only the bottom right of the photo that gives away that it's a reflection! Isn't it nice to meet fellow bloggers in person! And in Versaille of all places! Look foraward to seeing you taking a reflection shot!!

I wouldn't have guessed it without a second look. Neatly done!

Ed said...

That's a very impressive reflection. It's hard to get one like that without a good mirror. Very nice work.

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

That must have been a very clean window!

Alexa said...

Good one, James! And I'm looking forward to next week's post too.

Surprenante cette réflection et pleine de charme avec cette silhouette si naturelle. Versailles est une très jolie ville.
Happy New Year,

Sorry about the link James, I don't know why the image is black. Great shot.

I can hardly believe this is a reflection. Amazingly clear. Thanks for hosting and linking me in. I have just arrived back in Northern Ireland and trying to get caught up on other people's W Reflections

Su-sieee! Mac said...

You take some incredible reflections. If you didn't say they were, we wouldn't know. I like that a lot. Happy New Year!

Haha! Until you mentioned it was a complete reflection I was looking for reflections in the windows, nice one James and yes VDP is one of my favourite blogs also, looking forward to Ciel's photo of you next week.. very best wishes for 2015.

Wow, you could have fooled me ... that is really clear for a reflection. I assume the window it is reflecting in is very, very clean :) The young lady is too far away for you to tell her that smoking isn't healthy ... hope she figures that out in a reasonable time. Great shot, James and I look forward to seeing VDP's picture of you :) Happy New Year to you as well, James ...

Gattina said...

Unbelievable ! I just wanted to comment "where is the reflection" when I read that the whole picture is a reflection !

Jo said...

That's one very clean window. Great reflection. I look forward to the pic of you! Happy New Year.

That is such a neat reflection !

I'm glad you were able to encounter Madame VDP during your visit of Versailles : I can't wait to see next week participation !

'Tsuki said...

And... HOUPS ! I forgot the most important in my previous comment :

BONNE ANNEE, BONNE SANTE pour toute ta famille et toi, James !

Interesting image. I did not say any distortion to indicate this is a reflection.
