Catching a California Sunset (Weekend Reflections # 310)

Newport Beach, California

 In a shop window next to the Newport Beach pier, I noticed this little Mexican man holding a big margarita glass. I stood at angle and took a shot, hoping it would look like he caught the reflection of the sun in his glass. The palm tree reflections are bonuses. :-)

I had a nice stay in my hometown, or more technically, my "home county"  (I have lived in a few different cities in Orange County). At first the weather was a bit warmer and more humid than I expected, but towards the end, the comfortable ocean breezes kicked in and all was good.


Have a nice and hopefully long weekend!!!

Now I'm confused-- why is the reflection of the sign not reversed? It must be a double reflection.

I miss the Southern California beach cities terribly - even though I still live in the Northern part of the state!

James said...

@Kenneth Cole. I was standing outside of a shop. The sign was inside of the shop so it's not a reflection. The palm trees, sky, sunset and a street lamp are the reflections. I guess I should also note that the man holding the glass was inside of the shop so he is not a reflection. :-)

Well, the sun engulfed the Margarita glass, so I guess you could say he caught it. Funny cute capture, James ...
