Trapped in a Reflection (Weekend Reflections # 297)

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Men in the window: "Why is that strange guy taking our picture?" 

Me: "Because if there is one type of photography that I like more than reflections, it's street photography. I couldn't pass up this mixture of both."  

Well, at least that's how I imagine it would have went down if I stayed there long enough. However, when doing candid shots, I like to stop, click, then keep walking. :-)

Happy Reflecting!

The expression on the guy on the right is hysterical.

really cool. :)

Adrienne said...

I'm getting braver....but I'm still not so bold as to snap a shot if I feel "caught"!! Great expressions - and love that we've got both nature and man made in the reflection. Happy Weekend!

Great capture, James! I tend to be a bit chicken in these situations—but maybe it's easier when your subjects are trapped behind glass. :~}

Lew said...

Great reflection and you caught the moment - cannot wait for people to pose for these shots!

Did they chase you down the road? Love, love the face of the guy on the right!

With the look of the guy on your right, I'm surprised that he didn't come out with his dukes up.

This is fantastic. I can really imagine how the men are talking and wonder.

Halcyon said...

They certainly look surprised by you!

Andrea Priebe said...

It's the hit and run that makes them wonder. In this day and age, you never know what you are capturimg. Maybe a secret meeting or a passing of money, secrets, or ... anyway, the bottom line is, you caught the perfect expressions on both of their faces. That made it all worth while.

Great combination of effects!

Valerie said...

Ha ha love it! I am very familiar with click and go street photography but I have never managed to combine it with such a good reflection.

It's really a great capture, James, but you may have had gotten away with something there - like hearing what the guy on the right is calling you. ;)

Jim said...

Love the surprised look on his face.

The look on the faces - great!!!

Jackie Mc Guinness said...

This is fantastic. I must say I would feel awkward if someone was taking my photo!

DawnTreader said...

Very clever! :)

cieldequimper said...

This is a fantastic one James. You know if it had been me, I'd have run after you to make you bin it though!!!! :-)

Great reactions. I always try to sneak my shots, but you confront humanity head-on. The responses are well worth it!

So good shot ))
