Busy reflection (Weekend Reflections # 561)

Lyon, France

This is a reflection in a window of one of the shops on Rue de la République. The pedestrian street wasn't very busy but the pattern of the security gate behind the glass makes this reflection a little busy.

Happy reflecting!

A reflection near the metro station Arts et Métiers. I think the reflection was on an acrylic casing that covers a metro map.

Welcome to the Twilight Zone (Weekend Reflections # 559)

Paris, France

Just a head in a window and some blurred reflections. 

2020 feels like the Twilight Zone to me. It just keeps getting weirder and weirder. 

Have a great weekend!

Balboa Island Museum (Weekend Reflections # 557)

Newport Beach, California

A rare local reflection after a rare rain storm.  :-)  Taken January 2020

If I would have lain flat on the ground or if my knees and back were younger, I probably could have captured more of this building reflected in a puddle between parked cars. But I was able to get the top of the building with the signage.

Guignol, Gnafron and a Statue (Weekend Reflections # 556)

Lyon, France

This is the sign for La Maison de Guignol a marionnette theater at Place de la Trinité along with the illuminated statue of Peter or maybe Joseph. The two names in the title are the two characters on the theater sign. Everything in this picture is a reflection.

Reflet d'Or (Weekend Reflections # 555)

Lyon, France

A shop window near Place Bellecour. I should have had a little more patience and tried to capture the entire reflection of the golden head, but as I often do, I made a mental note to come back...but never did. 

Have a great weekend!

A Heart for Lyon (Weekend Reflections # 554)

Lyon, France

On this evening I was meandering through Passage de l'Argue looking for an interesting reflection. I heard a group of young people talking behind me, and at the same time I noticed this reflection of a multi-colored heart. As I was trying to figure out a good angle to capture it, the group passed me and gathered right in the shot. I was annoyed and I remember thinking some not so nice thoughts. I took this shot while I waited, hoping they would leave. Then I heard what they were saying. They were taking care of an old homeless man who was taking shelter in the covered passage. Their concern and offers of help sounded genuine and loving, and I felt ashamed for being so self-centered. It was good to see compassionate youth.





Happy Mother's Day

Baby-foot ! (Weekend Reflections 553)

I didn't want reflections in this photo but they couldn't be avoided. At least I can post it on Weekend Reflections.  :-)

Un Rêve Lucide (Weekend Reflections # 552)

Paris, France

When I saw this reflection I had the same feeling as I do when I suddenly realize that I'm dreaming. It's usually triggered by something familiar but not quite right. The feeling is usually disconcerting and sometimes startles me awake, other times I adapt and go with it. During the past few months I've had similar feelings about this strange new world we've been thrust into. However, I'm pretty sure I'm awake.

Have a great weekend!

"Il M'a Posé un Lapin !" (Weekend Reflections # 551)

The woman waited in the rain for someone, but in the end it was only her reflection that showed up.

(Il m'a posé un lapin ! = He stood me up !)  :-)

Women's Secret (Weekend Reflections # 549)

Lyon, France

A round mirror inside of a shop called Women's Secret. Unfortunately I didn't have time to go inside and find out what the secret is. I guess some things are best left to the imagination. 

Happy reflecting!

Librairie Alain Brieux (Weekend Reflections # 548)

Paris, France

I think this is concave mirror. The reflections appear small and upside-down. Last month after a nice lunch, my friend Arnaud (kwarkito) showed me some amazing shops. This one was small but amazing. I guess you could call it a curiosity shop. It had all sorts of interesting things from old books to antique medical devices. It even had petrified dinosaur eggs!

Happy reflecting!

"Hé ! Hé ! Maurice ! Mais qu'est-ce que tu prends ? - Un p'tit Beaujolais - Dans un grand verre !"

Qui Sommes Nous ? (Weekend Reflections # 544)

Paris, France

What is she looking at? Who is he looking at? Qui sommes nous ? = Who are we? 
Reflections, street photography, and a little something to ponder. :-)

I had a wonderful trip and had a great lunch in Paris with Arnaud aka Kwarkito.

Happy reflecting

Social Distortion (Weekend Reflections # 542)

Vienna, Austria

I was trying to think of a title for this reflection but the only thing that came to mind was the name of my favorite band when I was in Jr. High School.   :-)

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'll be back for Weekend Reflections on Feb 28 but the link is scheduled during my absence.

Jeanne d'Arc (Weekend Reflections # 541)

Paris. France

It might look like Joan of Arc is going to crash into the chandelier but fear not because she's a reflection and the chandelier is on the other side of the window inside of a hotel.  :-)

I'll be away for a couple of weeks but Weekend Reflections has been scheduled to post at the normal times.

Have a great weekend!

A Fragment of a Memory (Weekend Reflections # 538)

Paris, France

I don't remember where I was coming from or where I was going when I took this photo, but I do remember where I was when I took it. I was standing in front of Hôtel de Vendôme at the entrance to Place Vendôme. 

Have a great weekend!

Reflections in Reflections (Weekend Reflections # 537)

Paris, France                (Everything is a reflection except the small strip of floor in the bottom right corner. )     


I remember taking this photo through the window of Knoll International in December of 2014 while walking on Blvd Saint-Germain-des-Prés toward the Pont de la Concorde. When I looked in the window I felt a little overwhelmed by all of the reflections. This place has lots of mirrors plus the buildings across the street were reflecting on the window.  I didn't have much time and it was almost dark but I did manage a quick shot before catching up with my wife who was sick of my constant photo stops.  Just one more picture ma chérie!  ;-)

Have a great weekend!
