Pyrex Fruit Bowl Levitation in Afternoon Light

When I get home from school I put the kettle on and make a cup of tea. Or a cuppa as some friends say. Unwind.

And I sit at the kitchen table, wait for the water to boil.   I saw the fruit bowl reflected in the diner print.

I am sure it has been there before but today I saw it.

    I really like this photo a lot. The rays of sunlight and the reflection are terrific. Good eye!

    I can’t help but wonder: What is all of that stuff on the door knob? String?

    • That is an “alarm system”. Ha! String and bells attached!

  11. The photo is fun but what my eye went to was the window sill and trim and the door knob. You must live in a wonderful, older home.

  12. That eye of yours is always working, isn’t it? Another great, clever shot!

  13. Neat! Great capture. It’s good you noticed it.

  14. Neat! I used a reflection like that once to stop my daughter from getting into something she had no business touching over in another room. I had no direct line of sight, and she was shocked that I was able to see her. I told her, “I have eyes in the back of my head, I can see EVERYTHING.” She later told my husband, “Did you know Mommy has BACK EYES?” lol!

    Great photo!
