creative reflection, Vicki!
somehow reminds me
why I left the urban scene 🙂

Not sure what the matt red is….paint? Ehrrr….blood?
But the shiny colours are the red, yellow & white reflections of shop neon signs on the wet pavement and the shiny blue is a reflection of the sky.
Glad I don’t live in Melbourne city itself. There are dozens of high-rise building construction works and cranes everywhere….and the smell….of cigarette smoke, chemicals and perfumes are disgusting. Bad for my MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) some days and after doing my errand, I usually don’t stay long. Have often taken the camera home un-used in recent months.
I need to see the birds and the sky.
Incredible photo, Vicki. You are so gifted. I’ve probably already told you this but am going on an indefinite blog break + trying to avoid internet as much as possible. I am sick to death of my own words!
Be well, Julie. I must say the 8 days I had without the internet last week were quite refreshing in some ways.
Sometimes I think it would be good for everyone to have plenty of long breaks from modern technology. I got sick of writing words so made this B & W blog ‘images only’ for a break.
Wow! This is stark and intense….You still loving your Sony? Have a great day/night,vicki!Steve 🙂
At first glance it looks like a murder scene! But looking closer, that vibrant red in the reflections is very beautiful. I love red. And reflections. 🙂
That’s a bit sinister
It was much brighter than I’ve usually seen shop light and sky reflections that’s for sure, Trisha.
Maybe a change of post title to ‘Pavement reflections’ will take is out of the sinister connotation?
thanks for the sharing the details!
when i lived outside of Oakland
there was a lot of shooting.
i’m happy to live
closer to nature now,
as you do 🙂
There is nothing quite like capturing reflections ~ and you create such a great sense of possibilities with this shot Vicki. Great photo.
I love reflections in puddles, but after being abused a few times in the city (for stopping in the middle of the pavement to photograph them), I don’t do so many these days. Well, not in the city centre anyway.
Rather macabre ….. Great image.
Definitely macabre, but since it’s only the red lights of a shop reflecting in the puddle I think we can feel at ease. Maybe the matte areas of colour are paint (on the footpath)?
