Outside The Sleeping Bear Inn last summer (which is totally abandoned, so… you know… it’s not like that). Have a great weekend, everyone!

I thought this was Darth Vader at first
glance but what a fine offering my great
friend, a reflection within a reflection,
so how cool is that idea? 🙂 🙂
Have a wicked one today SIG 🙂
‘Luke… I am NOT your father. No. Really.’
Thank you very much, Andro! I hope you are having a good one as well, sir!
Wow I was actually the first to comment, now
that is definitely a first for me, I think? 🙂 🙂 🙄 lol
Have a wickedly exciting rest of weekend SIG 🙂
Hmm… I’m not sure if that’s happened before or not, Andro…
all I know is that every comment you leave is very kind (and sincerely appreciated)!
Many thanks, sir – I hope you are having a good one as well!
Fabulous! So mysterious! Love it! Have a great weekend! Robyn
Thank you so very much for your kind thoughts, Robyn! I hope you have a good one as well!
Ninjas can only be seen as a reflection. Sheez, they don’t call me little grasshopper for nothing!!!
(so… um… I hope ‘Google Translate’ was in the ballpark on that one)
It’s a reflection in a reflection. Creepy cool! At least we now know you’re not a vampire!
Hope you have a great weekend.
Hahaha… I considered telling everyone I shot this in Bon Temps…
(thank you very much, Ms. C! I hope you have a good one as well)!
WOW!! Inky – so creepy coooool!
PS: I’ve misssssed you! Hope you & the beautiful ‘Belle are doing wonderfully. 😀
Thank you very, very much!
I had some ‘technical issues’ a while back which was kind of a bummer, but everything has been resolved and we are doing okay! I hope your family is having a wonderful summer, too, Dishy! Thank you again!
I feeling like I’m spying on the neighbors across the road wit binoculars.
Great image, Sig…you know I love like silhouettes.
Have a great weekend! 🙂
It does feel a bit like that, doesn’t it? Fortunately no one’s been at home here for quite a while, or else I’m sure I’d have been in trouble!
Thank you very much, Deb! That is very kind of you to say! I hope you have a good one as well!
Thank you so much!
Fantastic! I love it. Great composition.
Thank you very much! It was just kind of luck… I walked in closer to check out this amazing light, and the window seemed to take care of all the rest!
I echo the other sentiments, Robert. Cool, creepy, and fantastic all in one reflective shot. Most excellent. Glad I caught this one – it’s been ages since I’ve entered the blogosphere. Life is calling me in other areas. *sigh*
Thank you very, very much, Ms. D!
I know that feeling – I’ve been there and done that myself! I just hope that you and your family are doing well (and having a wonderful summer)! 🙂
I have always had a liking of reflection images.
I sometimes almost get the feeling they’re like tiny windows into a slightly altered reality…
there’s something a bit different about the ‘feel’ of everything in a reflection…
(maybe it’s just the way things are mirrored, or layerd, but it’s kind of strange in a way).
I can’t figure out how you got this shot. Wow. You just blew my mind.
To tell you the truth I’m not really sure how this all happened, either, Peg…
just a happy accident (which is a nice kind to have)!
You put more layers in an image with your keen eye alone than most people can manage with Photoshop… Great composition, processing.
How incredibly kind of you to say, sir!
I really can’t take to much credit for the layering here – it was just a very happy accident! I was drawn over by this incredible golden light (and when I got closer the rest just kind of… happened…)!
Thank you again, sir! Very, very much!
Ha! Accident! No such thing. The best street photography is born of an unpredictable mix of serendipity and sheer luck.
But, you are only as lucky as you make yourself. Thank you 🙂
All I know for sure is that you make it look much, much easier than it is! Wonderful talent, sir!
Thank you very much!
Robert, this is riveting. I feel like you’ve taken me to another dimension. I don’t know…I don’t think I’m setting foot in that place. I happen to believe in ghosts, so I’m not taking my chances. Unless, of course, they’re nice.
It’s a very interesting looking place (from what I could see from the outside, anyway). I don’t think I’d want to hang out there by myself at night though. Just in case. Safety first when it comes to potential hauntings, right?!
Glad to know you’re not a Peeping Tom. 😯
I had the same thought as Nancy. Have a great weekend!
Great minds, Patti!
And thank you – I hope you are having a good one, too!
Hahaha… yeah, it occurred to me right as I was about to post this one that I should probably clear that up…
You always take great shots! Very nice composition on this one.
Thank you very much, sir! You are always incredibly kind!
This does have a creepy feel! I agree with Binky on both counts 🙂
Thank you, thank you, Mary!
It’s so spooky. It could be a ghost, or it could be someone in another dimension staring at you through some sort of bizarre interdimensional window. I like.
Fortunately I have it on good authority it’s a pretty laid-back ghost, Madame (mostly just haunting pillows… is it time for a nap yet?)!
So when you screw up and get in your own shot, you just make a name that make people think it was on purpose? haha
Ha! Like, totally, dude!
Very nice. I thought that that man is you. How cool.
Thank you very much, sir! Yes… it’s me… kind of (it’s a little warped from the glass, but… something like that, anyway)!
Very Kool! I was trying to do something similar the other day while waiting for my carpoolers. (I was bored). I noticed how the reflections reacted on the designed glass in my door. Unfortunately I didn’t get a shot anywhere near as nice as this. I just couldn’t capture what I was seeing.
This was just all kinds of luck – I really can’t take credit for most of it at all! To tell you the truth I originally walked over because I saw this really great, warm light bouncing around on the glass… and then… this just… kind of happened! I don’t really have the first clue as to why or how, but I thought it was kind of interesting in a way! Just a lucky day, I guess!
Layers! I love it, Robert. 🙂
Thank you very much, S.E! It was a happy surprise… I had just headed over to check out some really cool light when this unfolded…
So beautifully balanced and so mysterious!
This place really did / does have a very interesting ‘feel’ to it…
Thank you so very much, Ms. K!
Would be a good one for the ‘In The Background’ Weekly Photo Challenge 🙂 Like the reflection within a reflection!
Many thanks, sir! I might have to investigate getting back into the photo challenges… it was kind of fun (when I could think of something that was appropriate-ish, anyway)!
A ghostly figure in a deserted inn. Nice
Hahaha… that might explain all the Scooby prints…
Wow! Amazing shot! A frame within a frame within a frame!
Thanks Cristina! It just kind of worked out that way on it’s own… kind of lucky!
Excellent shot. Eye catching & mysterious.
Many thanks, sir! The whole little village is kind of mysterious… in a way. And pretty interesting, too… a lot of history.
