weekend reflections



It's Friday, the sun is shining, and I just won two additional Winning Play tickets on my Green Bay Packers Winning Play scratchcard.  I'm so lucky.    And...it's time for Weekend Reflections, now how about that?   Things are good. 




That's a crowded storefront in Bayview, a groovy little area on Kinnikinnick Ave.  just north of where I live.   Can you say that three times?   The buildings across the street being reflected weren't near as festive, but you see that large hanging ball up there, just right of center?    Well...


there I am!   Standing on the sidewalk out front,  snapping away.    I probably could have done better with this shot, but oh well.   It is what it is.



This one was taken in Racine, a small city south of here on the shores of Lake Michigan.   It has one of the best main streets around, having preserved most of its historical buildings.   All the horizontal and vertical lines caught my eye, and I got a reflection as a bonus.   A cold front was moving through when I was there yesterday, and it was wicked  (as my buddy Susan from Maine would say) windy, so I didn't spend a whole lot of time walking around.     I did go to the Racine Art Museum though, referred to around these parts as Ram.    So.  If I was at an art museum, you know what that means...   



Yep...a selfie in the women's room.  Were I so inclined, I could put together a book of nothing but selfie's in public women's rooms.    Why, it's just such a natural spot for that sort of thing,  don't you know?    This one was particularly nice too, with its own little gold tinsel tree.    I thought that was a real nice touch, it being the holidays and all.

Well that wraps it up for another week of reflections.    Thanks for stopping by and checking them out.   Head on over to visit James to see what other people found in their reflection spotting this week.    Happy Friday everyone.   Go have a fish fry.

I can't even say it once.
I was disappointed at first as there was no selfie in the first photo. Then you pointed out the Christmas ball selfie. "Okay" I thought. "Better than nothing." And then you let it all out with another restroom selfie. Great!! You know, that is a awesome idea. Just making up prints and doing an art show with them would be so advant garde. The mini-blind shot is really nice. I wondered if it could be done without the sidewalk and awning, just the blinds and reflection only but probably the angles didn't allow that composition. Great post Becky. Have a great weekend and I hope those Play tickets turn out to be Pay tickets.

Yessuh...wicked good reflections this week. I love that bathroom selfie. Do you sing in there too? All that tile makes most any singing sound good.
I love that first shot. It's one you look at more than once and see more and more with each viewing. Great to point out you snapping away in the round.
Your storefront shot reminds me of a neighboring town that also has retained lots of it's historic buildings. Unfortunately at present many are vacant. I love the combo of the horizontal lines with reflection.
I owe you an email and I will deliever. Happy day!!

Cool collection of reflections, the selfie is nice!

Lily said...

Doing a book with selfies in the ladys room - why not?

Love the little golden christmas tree and that someone put it there. Little things can do so much to influence the feeling of a room.

Hope you get your white Christmas.
We had today the first snow for this winter.

I like them all, but the one with the blinds behind the street refelction is awesome. Also, thanks for the tour of your fine city! Hope you are doing well...

Gemma Wiseman said...

Enjoyed how you took us on a wander through a streetscape and pointed out quirky points of interest along the way! Love the dimensional reflections in the golden ball! And the mirrors in ladies' rooms always seem so much bigger than the domestic ones! More opportunity to include some interesting decoration!

I love your pics. Glad you got the packers winning tickets. I'm a Dallas fan and miserable right now.

I love your restroom selfie pic. I took one pic of myself in the a restroom. I was all by myself, fully clothed and all that and just took a pic of me in the mirror and my bloggie friends tore into me for taking a picture in a public restroom. So I'm glad I'm not alone.

Karen said...

Great captures! Doesn't look like you have snow either? A Christmas tree in the restroom, that's pretty fancy! Have a great weekend!

Molly said...

I love the reflection of you inside the Christmas ball, Becky having a ball, I love it.

Rambling Woods said...

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

Love groovy Bay View! One of our very favorite restaurants is there. I grew up in Racine :)

Leanne said...

I do love these reflections- I like the second one-christmas decorations are great for reflections aren't they?
Selfie in the bathroom is gorgeous too- & how special to have a golden tree in there!

Fun reflections for this Christmas season.

I have yet to post the reflections from the creek. Hmm. I think I might have to take photos of rest rooms now... our old train station, the Fulton Theatre... You clever gal! Enjoy your fish. I had eggbread French toast for lunch. Not to sure about my supper... As I'm dining alone this eve. Cheers!

James said...

Thanks for the reflections! I like them all.
A public restroom selfie book sounds interesting. If it takes off you can travel the world and do selfie photos in restrooms in Paris,Rome,Tokyo etc for the second book. :)

Dianne said...

the window blinds give the reflections a wonderful texture

love your self portrait

seabluelens said...

You do that book and I'll buy a copy for my coffee table! I love your selfies.

Randy said...

That would make in interesting book. Love the photos and the shop in the first shot looks appealing.

Francisca said...

I'm joining the choir singing YES, YES to your "selfie" book idea... and James added the perfect idea for the second edition. Check out this: http://www.blurb.com - a self-publishing site, and there are many more like it. When I saw the top image, I immediately noticed the big shiny ball... and hoped you'd get in close on that... and you DID! Enjoy your weekend, Becky, rain or snow!

Evelyn S. said...

I'm really enjoying your "women's restroom selfie" photos! I should try that sometime! Fun post!

colleen said...

I take pictures in Ladies rooms too. Must window shop soon.

becky said...

The reflection in the window w/ the blinds looks like one of those realistic painted murals.
A gold tinsel tree in the bathroom... now that's fancy!

The top one is quite creepy. And I wouldn't have noticed the reflecton in the ball if you hadn't drawn attention to it. It's interesting when there are hidden elements like that in a picture.
