Default Reflections of

Mirror images double your viewing pleasure.
Reflections of-dscf6884.jpg
Reflections of a once vacant quarry send back a houseboat resting in its lair.
Reflections of-dscf6883.jpg
A void has been created, a home built. Its reflection, spoiled, hindered.
Reflections of-dscf6880.jpg
I recall leaping freely from its uppermost thrust into its icy cold heart below.
Reflections of-dscf6879.jpg
As I sit along its southern most edge, I notice how clear, how smooth the water now is without the play of children.
It's beauty reflects twofold. Reflections of, the way things used to be.....

You are poetic in your descriptions.

I agree the house is kind of an eye sore...but imagine the view *they* have *from* the house.

I remember visiting a quarry once as a teen to swim...your comments brought back that memory.

It's nice to reminisce isn't it....and equally nice to receive such kind remarks.
Now for a bit of play..... Can you see them? See what? You might say...
Hmmmmmmm Take a close look, a real close look at the cliff and its reflections and tell me what you see.

When I first read that, I thought you might've meant can you see (imagine) the kids playing in the water. It was late and I was too tired to figure out what you meant.

Now, I'm just *guessing*, but the perfect mirror images make me think of bugs, butterflies, and such. Not sure what it is you are seeing...same as me or not. Kinda like Rorschach inkblot tests...I think we all may see something different. ...In one of the first two pictures, I thought I saw the shape of a frog with outstreched limbs.

Now you're on the right track Dapjwy.
I see something entirely different but for now I'm going to leave it open so others can pull in their own images....

I'm going to take a leap back to see if I can pull in your frog.

I SEE him....He's in the first photo and he's doing the breast stroke!
Good imagination Dapjwy! It's kind of like visualizing what you see in the clouds in a way isn't it.

Yup, that's him.

Cool idea...I'm looking forward to seeing what you were thinking about when you asked.
