5351km to Bangkok or.. where there's a lampost there's a seagull!


 
The signpost to the left (you may have to pull in) showing the distances from here to other cities around the world is a popular spot for photos at Hillarys Boat Harbour. Two lampposts two seagulls, enough said :) What I love best about this area of the marina are the London Plane Trees, pale green in late spring/summer, orange/brown in autumn and here almost naked skeletons in winter.. ever changing sentinels of the seasons. They are reflected here in the window of San Churro.. not a bad spot to indulge in a winter warming hot chocolate! Wishing you skies of blue this weekend, take care and stay safe...

  5. I was a little confused by the photo, until I saw the word 'reflection'.

  6. Thanks Grace, I think it's rather amazing just how much more we notice whilst studying a shot such as this. Thanks also for the links - I've been all over the place this morning and enjoyed my 'trips'! Wishing you a lovely weekend, xoJoy

  8. It does looks like a great place to sit and watch the world go by and that seagull has found a perfect spot to see it all.

  11. A difficult reflection, what is real and what is reflected?

  12. I didn't quite get that this was a reflection until I saw your caption, I was wondering if the orange design was a sculpture. Perhaps I need to take a nap!
