Weekend Reflections






After a gray morning, today turned out one of those almost unbelievably crisp and clear and sunny autumn days. I had intended to go into town, but changed my mind, and went for a much longer walk. The long way round, and many photos later, I ended up in the town centre after all.

I just downloaded around 300 pictures from the camera to the computer. 200 from today, the rest from earlier this week. I don’t know where to start! I’m sure not all of them are of blog-worthy quality, but you might be seeing autumn colours on my blogs long after all the leaves have fallen from the trees outside…

I chose some “reflection” pictures for this post.

The first two were taken by a little lake which is a bird sanctuary. (Link goes to a post from last year.)

The third is a mirror reflection of the photographer (i.e. me), in town. The mirrors are on a wall on one side of the river, reflecting the trees in the town park on the other side of the river. So I’m facing the wall and the mirror, and the trees are behind me. (The link goes to a post in my Picture Book back in June, where you can see the whole mirror wall along the promenade.)

Turning around, facing the park, I got the view in the fourth picture.

The last picture was taken from one of the bridges over the river, looking towards another one.

These are fabulous reflection pictures! I remember your old header that you had for so long, and you were brunette in that picture? I don't really know what you look like, but this picture gives me a glimpse, so that's my favorite. The last two are spectacular!

A beautiful set of photos. The barcode mirror building is very imaginative and wonderfully executed.

These pictures are beautiful! They're so clear! Are they straight out of the camera?

Rae, the one of me facing the mirror wall was cropped quite a bit but the river reflections are "pretty much" straight from the camera.
