Here's a more uncommon Central Park view on an overcast evening looking at The Central Park Boathouse Restaurant from a man made lake in the foreground. I'm always mesmerized by reflections- in mirrors, windows, glass, water- everywhere that they may be. It's seeing a a duplication of a picture through light- with variations that are so unique to me - whether it's a distortion with a twist of view or an optical illusion. It always makes me think about what I'm seeing and its reference to our surroundings. A reflection is a flash from a moment in time -never to be seen again, but rather an echo of life with new threads.
A reflection is an echo in life with endless ripples that tell a story.
Here's the infamous Bethesda Fountain from behind- a view typically not seen in pictures.
And a reflection from the wooden restaurant dock with its evening light aglow - creating the most beautiful marbled pattern in the dark green water.
And one of my favorites - the sky and tree leaves' view as a reflection on the water.
Look carefully for what our eyes tell us isn't always what we really see.
Sometimes it's what we want to see, and other times, it's what we don't want to see.
The very best view is what puts the most outrageous smile on our face and lights up our heart with fireworks that makes our soul aglow.
