Another great reflection shot! 85 euros? What is that mirror made or - gold? I'd want at least a 10% discount for accumulated dirt and the effort it would take to remove said dirt!

akarui said...

Tres sympa comme photo. Bien vu!
J'aime beaucoup.

Paulie said...

Great reflection shot! Must be an anyique to cost so much. . .

Natural Moments said...

Reflections expand our view of life in more ways than one.

Love seeing the grounded view of the legs too.

Woody said...

I'm with Jacob, the price seem a bit steep. Is the owner willing to haggle?

Very clever shot!

Bob Crowe said...

€85 for a speckled reflection of legs and feet? You can get it in the window for free. But the dollar is rising against the euro. I might be tempted the next time I visit Frame.

And by the way, this is very well composed.

Louis la Vache said...

So if it's 85€ to buy it, how much will they pay you NOT to buy it? ;-)
(Answer: at 85€, it's not really for sale...)

Lily Hydrangea said...

what a great shot! I love how you've captured the women's shoes as opposed to their entire figures.

Tash said...

talking feet...love the photo esp. reflected. The mirror's frame is lovely too.

gogouci said...

Excellent capture.

tapirgal said...

It IS funny. I wonder what they're saying.

Olivier said...

pour 85 euros, il pourrait le nettoyer, mais bien vu le reflet

Chuck Pefley said...

A fun image. What is it that cost 85 Euros?

Dina said...

An original angle with an overvalued mirror. These ladies are wearing no boots?

Cezar and Léia said...

Looks like a good price. The frame is certainly interesting.

Great capture of the Audrey Hepburn legs and feet with those LONG skinny, white shoes!

Leif Hagen said...

I think Dominque and Jaqueline are having a nice sidewalk conversation, non?
Bon weekend!

James Mark said...

Cool shot, and so typical. Perhaps exchanging tartiflette recipes.

brattcat said...

Your weather must be getting milder, judging by the foot and leg wear. I love imaging the rest of these women and what they might be discussing. Wonderful shot, Ciel.

Small City Scenes said...

Excellent reflection. Great idea---you are looking in all the right places. LOL MB


Regarding the horses on my post. I forgot their names but all work horses have perfect names--don't they. MB

Lee Spangler said...

Maybe your photo should be worth 85 euros!

Halcyon said...

I certainly wouldn't pay 85 euros for that old mirror. But I am glad it served you well. They look like an interesting pair. A very creative take on the reflection theme!

James said...

Very cool shot Ciel! I took a picture very much like this a few months ago. I need to find it. :)

Carolyn Ford said...

I like the composition of this very much! Seeing the price adds interest...interesting reflection.

Very nice, a window into everyday goings on.

Malyss said...

Carletta said...

How wonderful! Even though we can't see their faces we can imagine these ladies deep in conversation.
Everyone doesn't seem to like the mirror but it looks a little like beveled glass and is probably worth all those eros. Resilvered it would be beautiful. :)

Lucy Corrander said...

I'm really impressed by this photo.

Cool capture and reflection!

Susan at Stony River said...

Jeez, €85, I thought Ireland was expensive! But I like how the price takes the foreground in the conversation between the ladies -- I wonder what they're talking about?

Cergie said...

Un de mes amis bloggueurs, qui ne bloggue plus comme il arrive parfois et pourtant il était bien installé dans la blogosphère, il n'est qu'à aller au début de certains blogs, et qui me manque... Cet ami était un excellent photographe mais très timide alors une fois qu'il était venu à "Paname" et que nous avions fait un "safari-photo" il m'avait dit ne pas oser faire de photos de personnes dans la rue, il me disait qu'il fallait faire des photos "au jugé". Et cela donnait des photos du style de celle qu'a faites ce miroir mais qui ne manquent pas d'intérrêt...

awarewriter said...

Very subtle. Amazing how legs and their postures can imply an entire story.

mbkatc230 said...

Great, creative reflection shot! I wonder if they are discussing the price of the mirror? Kathy

paulboo said...

I like this angle and those legs, they appear to be having a very serious gossip session :o)

Hope the price includes cleaning... ;-/

Serendipity said...

What a fun reflection!

Ebie said...

Are they debating whether to buy it or not? Yes, I would grab it without second thoughts. What are real bargain!

This is a very great photo and a fun reflections!

Shoes, no boots? I hear the shoes saying "What happened to all the snow?"

Thérèse said...

Very French!! :)
