Weekend Reflections

 
Posted by Picasa


So much candy, so little time! These candy jars were reflected in the beautiful marble countertop of the soda fountain at the Wakulla Springs Lodge just south of Tallahassee. My grandson, James, did finally settle on which candy he wanted--Tootsie Rolls! To see more wonderful reflections from all over the place, don't forget to visit the other James at Weekend Reflections.

What a terrific shot. Brings back memories of when I was a kid and all the corner shops in my neighbourhood had huge jars of lollies just like that. Sadly, these sorts of shops are rare these days.

The store keeper is being so cruel to the boy. How is he going to choose?

That must of been a very very difficult choice for a little boy to make! Reminds me of the penny shop with so many choices :D

What a lovely shot, Lois! Very well composed and the colors are super.

"Snow flowers." I like. Your grandson's very creative. I wonder where he gets that? :-)

This is a vision from an old fashioned paradise! I love those jars, their contents and the portrait of the pensive James, my namesake.

What a wonderful capture! I love that your grandson's eyes are almost level with the counter. He's getting a close-up view of all his choices. This has such a cozy, old fashioned feel to it -- I like it a lot.

How could he decide with so many choices???? I'd be a basket (jar?) case!
He is so cute. And I totally agree with JM - a very fine composition.

I think I'd have a tough time deciding too! Love this, Lois.

Oh my, too many choices. What a predicament. MB

When given a wide variety of choice like that I tend to pick something ordinary, too. :)
