Now that the weather has become so pleasant I’ve started to go on walks to see the colors of the fresh new leaves on the trees and shrubs. Here I stood near a pond that provided reflections of the trees in the water.
The colors are very noticeable when you see these reflections.
With the fresh air, sunshine and the gentle sound of the water it looks like a good time for a nap.
It was an afternoon in May when I was taking a walk where I saw the Puerta del Sol in Madrid. The weather was changing from rain to sunshine and some blue sky was beginning to show. I noticed a glass domed metro entrance and these reflections. This is what I saw.
You can see more reflections here.
I was in Spain this spring and while walking across the Puerta del Sol in Madrid I passed a metro entrance covered by a glass dome. There were reflections of the surrounding buildings that I really liked. Although it looks stormy the clouds were actually thinning out and blue sky was visible.
Later I noticed that my red camera is in the bottom right hand corner of the picture. Although it was unexpected I think that it makes a nice souvenir showing I was really there!
This is a bridge that I paused to admire in Cambridge, England. It was a tranquil scene and I wanted to stay and look at it as long as possible.
I just got back from a trip to Seattle. As I was looking through the pictures I’d taken I remembered this one that featured outdoor reflections on a shiny piano. When I saw the reflection I knew it was something unique!
In December I was in Chicago to enjoy the holiday season. As I strolled around an outdoor Christmas market there was an interesting reflection on one of the buildings. It looked like this:
The two blogs I’d like to recommend are Elisa Ruland and Sharing My Italy…The Blog. You’ll really enjoy them!
This week’s photo challenge reminds me of reflections from buildings. Here’s a view from Dallas, Texas:
I spent a lot of time looking up at and admiring the skyscrapers in Chicago. Here are some pictures so you can see them too!
