A reflection of downtown

Terrific reflection, as if the building reflected lacked confidence.

Reflections force us to look at things from an angle normally not allowed, to see things from a perspective not thought of before.

Paula said...

Really nice. I wouldn't have realized it was a reflection without your title. Gray skies in Ocala? Guess it happens to all of us. :)

Los Angeles Suburbia said...

What a great capture of reflection and geometrics.

Small City Scenes said...

It looks like you are looking through a window not seeing a reflection. Very good. MB

magicpolaroid said...

wow really nice capture! well done!

VP said...

My first impression was the same of MB, then I realized this is an almost perfect reflection. I like how the pattern of the red bricks is slightly skewed by the glass panels.
An excellent image, Jacob!

Bibi said...

Very good! You've broken my stereotype of Florida; I always think of this state as having only more recent buildings!

Jim Klenke said...

I like the old reflected in the new.

Kate said...

An amazing reflection; at first, I thought it was another building.

Hilda said...

Love this shot!
Of course, James is going to ask why you didn't save it for his Weekend Reflections. :)

B SQUARED said...

Very nicely done. It causes me to stop and 'reflect.'

Dan J. said...

There is a cool contrast here between two periods of time. It makes for a very interesting capture.

Halcyon said...

Very nice reflection. The only thing missing is a blue sky. :)

Rose said...

What a reflection! Didn't realize it was one till I read your title.

Three Rivers, Michigan said...

Nice shot, but with the grey sky and brick building looks more like a northern city than like Florida!

Speaking as one who has been overly acquainted with grey skies, I'm hunting for sunshine.

A nice geometric image for today.
I agree with Brattcat it gives the brick building some power.

Jarart said...

Wow! Great shot Jacob! I wish my windows were that clean.

JM said...

Great reflection of that lovely brick wall.

Daryl said...

Love it, my favorite photos are reflectives

Love BC's comment and the dark side of Ocala.

Memphis MOJO said...

This shot must have been amazingly hard to take. Good job.

Lois said...

Fabulous shot Jacob! Such a clear reflection too.

EG Wow said...

That's a very cool reflection. I like all those dividers created by the...hmmmm, what do you call those horizontal and vertical pieces that hold in the panes? I like this one a lot, Jacob!

bfarr said...

Cool shot, Jacob.

tapirgal said...

Funny, I was just thinking the other day, I wonder how many older buildings you could find in Ocala. Here's part of the answer, and a very nice pic. I'd love to see a street scene of downtown, or maybe it's here somewhere.

Steffe said...

Cool.

magiceye said...

beautifully captured!

Trillian said...

A really nice reflection!

Virginia said...

I love old/new shots like this one. Nicely spotted!

Wonderful photo.
