A Rocky Reflection (Weekend Reflections # 335)

                                                                   The Barnes Foundation
 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania           

No, not that "Rocky" although I did walk past his statue shortly after I took this picture. :-) 
I had to laugh when a man who was also taking pictures said to me, "You should get a UV filter for your lens so you won't have to worry about all of these reflections." :-)

Happy Reflecting!

Oho, what is not always seen everything when taking pictures.
The building reflected so beautifully reflected in water.

Impressive.

Happy Reflecting

Ha ha! Did you tell that guy about your wonderful meme?

I love this! It was soooo cool, cause as soon as your page loaded, I saw the top 2/3 of the pic, without the captions, and knew immediately where you were! I love that museum...I don't know if you know it's history, but the Barnes collection used to reside in his residence that wasn't far from where I grew up. I visited the collection several times when I was younger, and absolutely LOVED getting to see it all in this new home soon after it opened. Great shot, as usual...and so funny that you got such a "helpful" comment!

Love the textures! The surface of the pool was like glass. If that guy had talked you into the filter several years ago your life would certainly now be less interesting!

If he only knew how much we love reflections! And from all over the world.

Yes now I am always looking for some reflections!

Funny, how passersby comment when you are photographing and it's mostly out of left field! Love that the reflection makes the tree a giant!

Jim said...

I like this shot a lot.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

That remark is too funny! I love this reflection. I now have my husband trained to take reflection pictures.

Pat Tillett said...

Really nice photo James! Not only a great reflection, all the stones at the bottom of the pond also really came out great.

Living on the edge of a moraine; I love pebbles.
Still chuckling over the photographer's remark. At least he was trying to be helpful and not shooing you away.

Another beautiful reflection.

Bibi said...

Ha! I think he meant a polarizer..... ;) Love the clear, clear reflection.

Melissa said...

Funny how we each have our own image in mind! This one is really nicely composed.

Great one again James.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Beautiful reflection captured here James, like Pat I love that the pebbles emerge clearly in the forefront of the shot. Must admit I've never offered advice to fellow stranger photographers, I always think that they're probably taking better shots than me anyway :)
