A New Years Kiss (Weekend Reflections # 170)

Grapevine, Texas (The reflection is in the Christmas ornament)

I wanted to capture a Christmas ornament reflection of me and some buildings on Main Street but the kissing couple at the top left of the photo "stole the show". So now this represents a New Years kiss at midnight. 

Happy New Year!!!

Please only link posts that have a photo or photos that contain a visual reflection.  Reflections can be on water,glass,metal or anything else as long as we can see the reflection.If needed, click the link near the top right corner for Weekend Reflections instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

  8. Great shot, James. The reflection in the Christmas ornament would have been enough, but the kiss is a real bonus!

  13. Je ne trouve pas que le couple vole la vedette à la boule : c'est complémentaire, et magnifique comme seul le hasard (ou Dieu) sait faire !

  17. Brilliant shot!

    Mais j'ai cru à une blague qu'il y ait une ville qui s'appelle Grapevine...;-)

    Bonne fin d'année !

  18. Wonderful! You're right; they stole the show, though the photo without them could stand on its own.

    And what's even more ironic is that I have scheduled a post for January 1st entitled The Kiss! Come see on New Year's Day.

  23. Au début, je n'avais pas vu le couple d'amoureux, essayant de voir le photographe dans la boule... Curieuse que je suis !
    Bonne fin d'année, et à bientôt pour l'année prochaine !

  25. Hi James, Was going to leave a link, but for some reason the Linky Link tool is missing here, have no links to other reflections here either, and they are gone from previous posts too ??? Is there a problem with Linky ?

    Shucks, guess I'll just paste the URL in here...

  27. Reflections in spheres are always impressive. I forget to look for them. The kissing couple is icing on the cake.

    Would you be surprised to hear that Rasputin's is still around? In fact, it now has three locations. Still interested in punk?

    Happy New Year.

  28. I would say the "reflection" is in the kiss! :-) La reflexion est dans le baiser!
    A very Happy New Year to you James and to yours!
