LAPC #207: Seeing Double

Art has a double face, of expression and illusion, just like science has a double face: the reality of error and the phantom of truth. ~Publilius Syrus

A warm welcome to Jez, who is guest hosting this week’s Seeing Double challenge. This theme is perfect for Jez, who loves shooting reflections with his crystal ball. His photos are terrific, so be sure to stop by his site and take a look.

In response to his challenge, I’ve come up with several of my favorite reflections from my archives. Click on the image to enlarge it.

I shot this last image earlier this week when the sun poked through the clouds in English Bay and highlighted the Engagement sculpture. As you may have guessed, we’re now in Vancouver, visiting our son. It’s wonderful to be together again.

As I wrap up this post, I want to give a special thanks Aletta Crouse for hosting LAPC #206 last week and giving us a glimpse of her treasures in South Africa. Her Treasures theme inspired many wonderful responses. Thanks also to those of you who participated and shared your treasures.

We hope you join Jez’s wonderful challenge this week. Be sure to link to Photos by Jez and use the Lens-Artists tag.

What’s up next? We hope you’ll join all of our talented guest hosts this month:

July 16, Andre of My Blog–Solaner is thinking about Summer Vibes.

July 23, Tracy, who posts at Reflections of an Untidy Mind, has chosen Surrealism.

July 30, Sarah Wilkie, who hosts Travel with Me, asks you to share Three Favorite Images.

During the rest of July, I’ll be taking some time off to recharge my creative “batteries,” relax, and enjoy some time with our son. I’ll be back on Saturday, August 6th with the rest of the Lens-Artists crew. Anne Sandler will lead our first challenge in August. Her theme is What’s Your Groove? I’m looking forward to joining you all then and sharing our creativity.

In the meantime, I’m wishing you plenty of good health, good weather and sublime inspiration! πŸ˜€

  1. Terrific post Patti – as always. I’ve not seen many B&W reflections and I loved that one especially. I haven’t quite figured out your composition with the bean – how in heaven’s name did you capture that? I’ve seen so many images of it but never anything like that. So creative! I also loved mirror mirror. Wonderful response – enjoy your family and your break and we’ll look forward to seeing the marvels you’ll be posting when you return!

    • Hi, Tina. Many thanks! I could see the Bean from the street in the winter. It was quite a surprise to see it there! And I am delighted we’re spending some time with Alex. Thanks again!


    • Hi, Anne. You can see the Bean from the street. It’s directly behind the skating rink. Without the trees/leaves in winter, it was visible. It was quite a surprise! Take care and have a good week.
