Reflections Of Amsterdam - Morning Glory

Unedited mobile phone cam shot of leafs in a puddle and the reflection of a biker and people outside the Magna Plaza, in Amsterdam. No editing, no magic tricks, no Photoshop :)

I usually don't like it when my phone cam focuses on the things outside the puddle instead of the actual reflection, but I do like this one, probably because the things inside the water are still visible and at the same time the Fall'ish vibe of the leafs adds a nice touch of color. As always, the people walking by my puddle were torn between assuming I'm a Madman that is doing unspeakable things to the wet spot, wondering if they should call the police (but then realized that the cops in the best city in the world mostly limit their work to molesting bikers without lights and it was broad(ish) daylight, hehe ;) and just pretending that they can't see this wicked Reflectah&his mobile hunching next to the water and leaving me alone, I mean this is Amsterdam after all and it takes a lot to freak people out :))

I wish I had all day to spot some nice places for my wicked reflections, right after taking this one I had to hop back on Bikey and hurry to work or risk coming late and having to explain to my boss that I missed the exquisite pleasure of Monday morning work just so that I could find puddles and play with them, lol ;-P

Almost weekend!
