Weekend Reflections


Weekend Reflections is hosted by James each week beginning Friday at 11 AM Eastern Standard Time. It's another wonderful way of opening your eyes to new and different kinds of beauty. Our weather hasn't been particularly encouraging for any activity that requires sunlight, but I did catch one rather busy and interesting one in our breakfast room window -- obviously a favorite place of mine! There are not only the reflections in our window, but a reflection of a reflection in a new window to be installed in our neighbors house. Then a couple of old favorites that I hope you enjoy -- again!

I always really enjoy your skywatch photos but just wanted you to know that your
reflections are really neat too. Esp. the glass and the sunset. Ah.... Have a happy weekend.

Xavi said...

Your photos are fantastic, the third is the one I like more, like a Monet painting.
Have a nice day Sylvia!

It is quite a set you show us here, once again... The first one is really my favourite : the reflection of the plant is so funny !

Malyss said...

I love the mixed colors and shapes of your 1st picture!

RuneE said...

That last favourite I'll be happy to see any day!

Cezar and Léia said...

I love the first one, there are delicate and several details in this picture, it's awesome!
Well...you are very talented with your camera and your compositions, adorable set of pictures!
Hugs and a nice weekend,
Léia

I love the duck on the log looking at her reflection, while the male swims nonchalantly around, not worrying whether his wife has her makeup on right or if she's getting wrinkles!
But that first photo takes reflections to a whole 'nother level, Sylvia, a reflection in your neighbor's uninstalled window. How cool is that? And how often does the opportunity arise? The glassware and plant reflect beautifully, especially the plant. And I see a chair, too, as well as the table.
Yep, reflections R U, Sylvia, without a doubt.

Tricia said...

Nice colorful reflections in the 1st one & I love that 2nd is beautiful! WoW! Love the lil duckies too!!!

Clytie said...

I love that you caught the reflections from the inside looking out. I don't think I've ever tried that perspective!

Oh, and I LOVE your colored glass pieces!

Buona serata :)

I see a beautiful flower arrangement too! Those colored vases are very attractive!

Have a good weekend

Greyscale Territory said...

Beautiful range of colours in these photos! Especially love the 2nd photo's glorious light in the sky and water!

EG Wow said...

Lovely reflections. I just love the duck in the last photo!

Elisa said...

Johnny Nutcase said...

lotsa great reflections. Cute mallard and i like the colorful glass jars, too!

jennyfreckles said...

Love all those gorgeous glasses. I bet they look pretty when the sun catches them too. And I laughed at the ducks - I wonder what's going on between them?

Dianne said...

the colors are so pretty
and I love the duck

Rebecca said...

Each photo is unique in its own way.

Al said...

I love all three of these photos, Sylvia. The first one certainly has a lot of reflections. The second one is simply gorgeous, as I've said before I love your sunset water shots as we don't have anything like that for hundreds of miles where I live. And the third one is like an impressionistic painting. I hope you have a great weekend, better than mine as I have to work (although I'm happy I still have a good job in this economy).

Wonderful Reflections!

Evelyn said...

Hi Sylvia - lots of reflections in your post.

It's raining but we are going out today. It's my husband's birthday, and I've lined up a movie and dinner date :).

Have a nice weekend, Evelyn

Cildemer said...

Gorgeous reflections!
Love the second one. Thanks for sharing.

Have a marvellous weekend, Sylvia
and thanks for visiting****

michael bird said...

Love the first one, Sylvia. Very impressionistic - somewhere in France, no doubt...

Linda Reeder said...

Ah, a blooming Christmas cactus! Not a CHRISTMAS cactus.

Genie said...

Both shots are beautiful, but that first one is a fantastically composed photograph. The water is lovely, too, but all of those reflection is the first shot are something else. Thanks for the comment on Abbott Lake. Buddy and I are always off hiking somewhere beautiful on the weekends.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh my gosh! All stunning. I like when you re-run old favorites, b/c your photos always teach me so much. The first one is a stunner. I guess that's a Christmas cactus?

George said...

I like the reflection from your breakfast room window, but all of the reflections are great.

Sylvia K said...

Hi Sallie, yes, it's supposed to be a Christmas Cactus, but it thinks it is a Thanksgiving Cactus because it always blooms in November. And then to further confuse things, it blooms sometime during the spring and summer, not as wildly as it does in November, but still lots of blossoms. It's an oddball and fits in perfectly here with me!! Thanks as always for your visit/comment! Always appreciated!

Pietro said...

Sylvia, these are very beautiful reflection images, I enjoy them all!
Have a pleasant weekend :-)

Gattina said...

That's funny ! the first picture is like mine, through the window except you don't have a cat sitting there, lol !
Nice reflections !

cloudbusting2 said...

The reflection pool looks so much more cuter when you add couple of litle birdies in there.

Irene said...

Oh, what a lovely sunset! Wish you a great weekend!

Love from Irene in Norway

Jane said...

Beautiful! I especially love the sunset. Sunsets always "move" me...

LakewoodDP said...

I love all of the reflections in the first picture! It looks so neat!

SquirrelQueen said...

Each reflection is beautiful in a delightfully different way. The reflection in the window is so pretty, I really like all the colored glass. I love the last one with the reflection distorted by the ripples on the water, these are my favorite type of reflections lately.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Judy

Nessa said...

Is that a blooming Christmas Cactus?

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great pics as usual. I just absolutely love the first one.

cieldequimper said...

Hello from rainy, dreary Versailles Sylvia! So you can imagine how much I'm enjoying this post!

jabblog said...

I really like your first photo - really interesting and colourful :-)

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Love your reflections, and particularly the cactus with the colorful vases. Thinking of you this week ahead...

Bises,
