A form of completed jigsaw puzzle in CBD

This take-and-go shot was made in Sydney CBD when I was walking there at lunch.  I thought it was quite beautiful that reflected architectures fit well in the surface of the building frame on this angle.

I like this building to check what’s displayed on or how the displays look like at the time (because they look differently by the conditions) and I enjoy to take photos of other buildings / architectures displayed by the reflection.  Due to its design of the building, when one of those small squares which are office windows is open to outward, the whole reflected picture is made looking like a incomplete jigsaw puzzle that mismatches one piece (or the number of pieces as the number of windows are open).

Well, as for today, looks like all pieces matches.

Swans made good reflection in their stillness

I caught this in my morning walk at in the park nearby where my family lives.

This park is popular among locals and visitors, and the pond is busy with boats and swan boats floating and cruising, and I really like visiting there in off-peak time and watching the reflection made in the still water.

And I made this photo my contribution to this week’s

Afternoon light leading to Luna Park

This was taken on the same time when I took these photos.

I was not particularly interested in this when I was scanning through all the photos I took on the day.  However, I came back and took a look at the photo again just by coincidence, which happened while I was tidying up my storage space, I found it interesting at the part, where the glass panels reflecting afternoon sunlight took a role of leading line reaching for the gate of Luna Park Sydney.

Also, edge of palm tree leaves that came into the frame, looks like as if it tickles the nose of her face.  And it may become why I feel a bit favor to this photo, I guess..  🙂

Stillness on off duty time

This was photographed at a local park in Tokyo where my family house locates nearby.

It was rather still early and the recreational boats were all rested at small bay on the pond.

The boats interested me as subject to catch because of their gathered form which was nicely aligned.  I took some photos from various angles.

This photo was my contribution to this week’s

By the way, the pond had Swans boats too.  They also beautifully parked in a row.  I would like to post the photo of them soon.

Sunset at Centennial Parklands

These were photographed sometime beginning of summer last year.  I headed down to Centennial Parkland after work.  I arrived at the park a little late and I had only an hour and plus a bit minutes to the dusk.  I trotted across the park trying to photograph as much as I could.  A couple of photos (here and here) I had introduced in my old posts were taken at the time.

Luckily I caught scenes at sunset.

It was breath taking minutes.  It stopped me from making move and my feet were stuck on the ground completely.

I came back to myself and I trained my camera to the scene, then, I noticed that there were two ducks near me who were busy with pecking the ground for dinner.  One of them stopped from pecking and stared at the sunset for seconds.  This coincidence brought me smile to the face, because we certainly shared the moment witnessing the sunset, even though the duck would have not recognized at me watching the sunset together.

It was a nice little episode and was made a nice memory.

The duck on my left stared at the sun setting in (well, to me, it looked like doing so..)

Thank you for stopping by.

Chasing reflection on the morning stroll in the Park

I took a morning stroll in the nearest park from my mother’s house.  It was pleasant warm morning that a mild cool and dry breeze stroked my cheeks gently yet you could feel early summer that was being right next to you.

The park has a pond in the center of the premises. It’s being busy with boats and swan boats ‘cruise’ around by visitors during day time.

The one I saw in the morning was incredible, the surface on the pond was sleek smooth as if a mirror installed on the pond. 🙂  Sometimes the mild breeze stroke raised small ripples on the surface of the water.  Evert ripples produced different touch on the water and objects of which were reflected on were seen with various effect.

It was the morning making me proud of myself for catching up this beautiful world of fresh green, on the last day with the perfect weather.

A morning on the beach

Another photo taken at Manly beach.

I like the way how a surfer came into the frame.  The guy nicely made himself in a silhouette due to the water with sunlight.

Picture frame

I like photographing reflection.  Reflection seen in nature is of course fabulous as always  but reflection seen in urban area / city are great too.

Here are one of recent reflections I caught by the beach.  Morning light made the beach spot nicely reflected on the window(s) of a local restaurant.

Due to the design of the windows and outlook of the restaurant building, which simple square windows just aligned in a row, it reminded me of something like, as if I see images in picture frame, or, images in film neg.  I thought it interesting in either way.

Not sure how you interpret them below, but it will be great you enjoy in any way.
