Weekend Reflection #16



James of Newtown Daily Photo is the host of Weekend Reflections Go over and visit him to see "Mr. Blue Sky" a marvelous reflective post you'll love!


This is the cropped image of a corner building in New York City somewhere. This is the side of the building where I suddenly realized as I looked at the picture that the fire escape reflected in the windows of the second and third floors. It's amazing what you find when you look close at the pictures you've taken with completely different ideas in mind...

I thought the photo would look good in black & white because there wasn't much color in the original.

Yes it's funny how looking back at photos we seem to always discover a different aspect.
Very nice in B&W

This is a great shot! I love the reflections and the details of the building. And I love the angles of the stairs, they add so much interest. And it's perfect in B&W. Kathy

This is a really good photo Mary. I like the composition and of course I like the reflection. I took a photo similar to this the other day but it was a shadow of a fire escape.

I really like this photo, Mary. Point of view does change interpretation, doesn't it?
