Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

I don’t have too many photos with interesting reflections, and I had used most of them for Jake’s Sunday PostΒ  ‘Reflections’ challenge, but here are just a few more that I found lurking in my photo file.

No prizes for guessing where this one was taken. Of course it’s owned by the guy with the most famous comb-over in the world. πŸ™‚ When it was completed in 1983, this 58-storey skyscraper on 5th Avenue Lower Manhattan, was the tallest building in the world. Donald Trump lives in the penthouse of course, and other residential parts of the building are occupied by some of the wealthy elite of New York.


In complete contrast to Mr Trump, here is another duck, although this handsome fellow would rather be called a Great Egret. He is usually the first bird I see every morning, as I look out of my bedroom window.


Here is some of the a lovely countryside, on our journey from Umhlanga to the Drakensberg mountains in South Africa.


This one was also taken in the same area.


This image taken in our Jeep, shows just how hot our South African summers can get. Thanks goodness for air-con.Β  I can’t make out the weird reflection, but I suppose it must be me taking the photo. I don’t usually look like that. πŸ™‚


Lastly, I was looking through some photos of our son’s wedding at Lake Tahoe, and found this one of me about to make my ‘descent from the clouds’ into the garden where the ceremony was to be held. I had never noticed the sky reflection before. πŸ™‚

  2. I love the color in the lake with the clouds. The one with you walking out of or through the clouds is too cool as well. These were all great choices! marsha πŸ™‚

  4. The trump tower made me feel dizzy just looking up at it! (don’t you just love vertigo).

    You look absolutely stunning in that photo πŸ˜‰

    • Thanks so much, Dianne.I can’t imagine living so high above the city, Dianne. Imagine taking your shopping bags all the way up in the elevator. I suppose that Donald doesn’t have to worry about carrying his own groceries. πŸ˜€

  5. I see you have begun to follow my blog – thanks so much, I really appreciate that. I envy you in your ability to travel so much, and the opportunity to take so many great shots all around the world. Thanks again.

  7. I used to live in one of the penthouse apts. in Trump Tower but decided to move because the neighbors were too noisy. (Ok, of course I made that up) πŸ˜›
    Guess that egret is looking for breakfast and I love those views in SA!
    You are certainly a vision of loveliness as you descend into the clouds! πŸ™‚
    Excellent series of pics Sylvia.

    • Yes, I can’t imagine living in such opulence on the 58th floor. I’d love to see inside his penthouse. I like the word “serene,” but can’t remember if that’s quite how I felt with my son about to get married. πŸ™‚

  10. You look beautiful in your “descent from the clouds” (you’re so clever!), and very, um, interesting (!) in that rearview mirror. I really love the photo of the lake in your journey from Umhlanga to the Drakensberg mountains in South Africa, too. πŸ™‚


  12. I’ve never seen the tower of Mr Trump. Wow..amazing πŸ˜› And then especially your photo, beautiful πŸ™‚ My warm regards to you @Adin, thank you very much
