A massive thank you to all who took the time to comment on the last image, I had no idea that it would get that response!
This is not what I intended to post however, a few things beyond my control made me re-think!
I thought that I would show some images of York (my home town).
While I was taking this reflected image of the minster a lovely couple from New York approched me and asked, why I was taking photo's of a puddle! I explained why and they were facinated by the technique and said "Wow, that's really cool" we went on and had a great chat about why they were in York and their vacation in general. They then proceded to take their own reflected images of the minster with the IXUS that they had and I must admit that some of the stuff they took looked great on the display. A further discussion was had about the states etc and we parted the best of friends.
I wandered into town looking to capture some images elsewhere but was not really feeling in the mood for it, so decided to head home about an hour later. As I was leaving the city centre my eye was taken by the same couple pointing thier camera into a puddle outside the Punch Bowl (a tudor oak framed building, now a pub). I felt a little guilty that I had shared this technique, I chuckled to think of them showing friends/familly their shots of the uk in puddles!!
All the best Mal
