Lew said...

Indeed, that's a great reflection! Subject, lighting, clean glass and great composition. It does look like a fun place to visit.

EG CameraGirl said...

That's a neat sculpture, worth seeing twice in one photo. :)

Sylvia K said...

You do find the most terrific reflections, James!! Hope your new year is off to a great start! Thanks as always for the weekend fun!!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Hmmm, sounds like a place I need to visit my next time I visit!

Est-ce le reflet le passé, ou est-il déjà le futur ? Le passé et le futur se ressemple tellement par moment : les choses semblent évoluer, mais les erreurs demeurent toujours les même d'une époque à l'autre, étonnant...

Mais fi de philosophie ! Cette superbe photo est un bel hommage à un quartier qui vaut décidément le détour à Dallas : ça donne envie de visiter !!!

BONNE ANNEE à Toi mais aussi aux tiens, bien sûr, James ! Puisses-tu continuer à organiser ce défi hebdomadaire encore longtemps...

Alexa said...

Terrific reflection, James! Is he a flagpole sitter?

Mama Zen said...

That is so cool!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such a clever perspective! Like a yin and yang, the real and the surreal together for a moment! Wonderful!

Joanna said...

Very unusual reflection photo. It took me a while to see what was being reflected.

I've linked my photo at www.uponhaliburtonhill.blogspot.ca/2013/01/west-coast-walking.html

Wow, awesome reflection James! Happy New Year!

Robert Geiss said...

Surely surreal an image. The sculpture and the car makes it great !
Neither do I see the linking list.

Please have a good weekend ahead.

When seeing the picture I had a shock: we have same sculptures by Jaume Pensa here,as you know, and I thought: "he finally came to Nice but did not say it!" :o))
Great shot , maybe one day you'll make the same kind here!

Adrienne said...

How perfect for New Year reflections! Love it!

Cezar and Léia said...

For some reason I like the reflection better than the real thing, who would understand that...
God bless you!

Great reflection; so clear and crisp. It is hard to see that one side is not actual, but a reflection.

Karl Demetz said...

Beautiful reflection and composition!

A Quiet Corner said...

James, I love seeing your observations in everyday life...:)JP

Halcyon said...

A very poignant one! Love the introspective nature of the statue. :)

Owen said...

Hi James, for some reason last week I could find the Linky, but it seems to be working this weekend, so you get two for the price of one ! How's that for a deal ?

Judy said...

Great reflection. We might just have to stop and visit on our way back home.

A perfect match reflection James.
