Happy New Year! (Weekend Reflections # 222)

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This is the base of a lamp in a shop window in Philadelphia called Luxe Home. The photo is a combination of two of my favorites things, reflections and street photography.

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays and I hope my French and British friends are okay after the terrible storms this week.

I wish you all a great weekend and a happy New Year!

You're so bold with your street scenes. I get quickly self-conscious when I notice someone noticing me taking a photo...have to get over that! The ipone helps...a bit sneakier, but I sacrifice quality! Anyhow - wishing you a happy new year as well...and love that you'll {perhaps!} be sharing some photos of Phili!

I love street shots as well. But, I have to say that I have tried many times to take a reflective picture of a rounded object and could never figure out how to get myself out of it ... So, is that you walking by with your camera or do you know the trick that I don't know ... Just asking :) Hope your New Year is great fun and is the beginning of a wonderous year of life and adventure ...

I just love the expression on the man face... Excellent pic ! I don't wish you an happy new year yet, cause it is bad luck to say it in advance, but I hope you will enjoy yourself on new year's eve. ^^

Le vent a soufflé mais nous sommes encore là... il y a toujours des intempéries en fin d'année, certains ont les pieds dans l'eau. Une belle réflection de rue pour cette fin d'année... encore quelques jours à attendre.
bon week end,

Ava

Absolutely delightful!

Your street shots are so clever as they usually involve passers by. I always wait until they have gone before taking a photo hence the reason yours are so much more interesting.Happy New Year James and thank-you for hosting this meme.
