Such a wonderful shot. It is so true that some people forget to look for the beauty in seemingly ordinary things but if you really opened your eyes .... you will see so many nice things to appreciate. Thank you for sharing this photo with us and for the comments regarding the photo. Have a great day :-)
rick wallace30-Apr-2006 23:15

excellent one, i must say this is one of the best in your wonderful collection in terms of simplicity of the subject and colours and great composition. grest capture,Adrian. my V!
Niall O'Shea05-Apr-2006 19:48
This really should be set to a Smiths song, like "This Night has Opened My Eyes." Calming but melancholy - the mood is as strong as the aesthetic appeal, here.
Steve England04-Apr-2006 21:37
Another v coming in..sublime work Adrian..
antidote304-Apr-2006 13:12

Sharon Rogers04-Apr-2006 12:28
A wonderful range of colours there. Your story reminds me of the line from a Faithless song... " don't need eyes to see you need vision." A vote for your vision!

There is nothing really that I can add, except my vote. This is just fabulous Adrian.
Guest 01-Apr-2006 22:37
Adrian, thanks for the kind comment on my still life. I understand what you mean. People see through whatever "lenses" they happen to favor. I see you favor lifeloving color and perspective lenses. Excellent work. Luke

Hurray! FANTASTIC image and commentary! So happy you had opportunity to engage the woman and highlight the beauty to be found everywhere. It is in the perspective and perception. Bravo.
Roger Richards01-Apr-2006 14:01
That is a brilliant reflection. The colours and the gentle ripple on the water are beautiful. voted
Celeste C.01-Apr-2006 13:50
Fabulous colors!
David Royall01-Apr-2006 13:05
I find it hard to talk about photography with people,
You just have to show them....
.... I doubt that the woman in the 'takeaway' will ever see this, but I wish she could.
AL01-Apr-2006 12:57
Thanks to your great eyes that we got to see this stunning relection :-) Beautiful colors and distorted silhouettes. Voted.
Eckhart Derschmidt01-Apr-2006 12:50
Brilliant reflections, and a funny story that sounds familiar to me. Many times I have heard something like "What are you doing here, there is absolutely nothing worth taking a picture of..." Unfortunately it is diffficult to proof such people they are wrong. The old lady in Griffitstown probably never will see this excellent image...
JW01-Apr-2006 12:45
Voted by the way! Gotta be one of the best reflections on PBase!
JW01-Apr-2006 12:43
Superb picture but even better when topped off with your story. Good for you!

(My son has a friend who aspires to photography but hasn't taken any pictures since September because 'it's winter, nuffin to take'. Ric showed him PBase - he was amazed!)
