Weekend Reflections From The Sidewalk


Every Friday through Sunday, Newtown Area Photo sponsors a meme where a gazillion photographers, amateur through pro, can showcase their work using a "Reflection" theme. I love to see the different points of view that people have, and the truly amazing pictures that they take.

I was so excited to post about this picture, and then when I was retrieving information from an earlier post of James', I realized that he has already done this reflection. Oh well, my reflection is from St. Louis, Missouri, and was taken from my front yard. Hope you like it!

For the untrained eye, like mine, it looks like a picture of the sky through some tree branches. It is, however, the reflection of same from a puddle after yesterday's rains. The big bright spot in the middle is the reflection of the sun.

I just want to thank Newtown Area Photo for sponsoring this meme every weekend, and allowing me to participate. Please visit Newtown Daily Photo and prepare to be "wowed" by some truly amazing artists!

I am glad you explained the reflection to my very untrained eye. That is really amazing. It sounds like you have gotten the rain we had for three days at the end of last week.

I knew what it was right away. :) It's a really neat shot. There are obvious things in the reflection as well as subtle colors and sparkles of light. I'm always amazed by what can be seen in puddles.

What a beautiful pink and blue skies reflected. Such a lovely day.

I had no idea that was a reflection, and I had it bookmarked for a week just to stare at it! I thought it was brilliant at first, now I really love it!
