Great reflections!
Happy weekend.

Sharon said...

A lot of contrast in this shot. Contrast between wealth and poverty.

Halcyon said...

Super reflection. Lots to look at here.

Cezar and Léia said...

Perfect capture, the reflections look as a mirror!

The person has made a neat little closet.
I guess it will always be that way, that some have sailboats and some are homeless.

Gine said...

Sommes-nous dehors ? Sommes-nous dedans ? J'aime bien l'ambiguité de cette image.

Jarart said...

I agree with Sharon, much contrast between wealth and poor. The reflection is perfect.

Terrific capture as always, JM! There is indeed such a contrast between wealth and poverty. Superb reflection! Hope you have a great weekend!

Very interesting picture, which tells a lot: terrible contrast between fortune and poverty, and strange mix of in and out..

Francisca said...

As others have noted, lots to reflect on here. Good capture, JM.

Pat Tillett said...

Very nice photo! they are everywhere these days, sad...

Lois said...

That picture says so much JM. The reflections are beautiful!

A thought-provoking image.

Jacob said...

Very sweet photograph! I love boats so I really love this reflection! What is all that stuff piled in the corner? Looks like the belongings of a homeless person! :-)

It also looks like an overcast and kind of gloomy day...

VP said...

A nice framing with a sour touch. Actually the harbor is the only place where you won't find homeless people here.

Julie said...

I agree. The contrast is thought-provoking, which I take to be deliberate. I wonder if it gives the homeless person some consolation to be among all that 'glitter'.

Nice social commentary, Jose ...

Cildemer said...

Photo muito nitida!
O contraste entre a miséria e a riqueza deixa uma espécie de "mal être" (mal estar? o meu português está cada vez mais fraco!).

Feliz fim de semana****

Fascinating image. A perfect reflection with a statement.

Inger-M said...

Great capture!

Jack said...

My first reaction was to be sad, but perhaps this homeless person has a better location and situation than many others. It is certainly a though-provoking image. Thank you for visiting Hartford Daily Photo the last few days and for your very kind comments about Susie's photographs. I am proud of her.

Lovely photo JM! Will have to visit sooner or later:)
Happy weekend to you!

Mama Zen said...

Great capture!

James said...

I'm more interested in the reflections of what look like sailboat masts. Nice colors in this shot too.

Randy said...

What a great reflection in this poor person closet.

tapirgal said...

Reminds me of the homeless camps I saw on the steps of the Trocadero in Paris for some reason. . . .

T. Becque said...

It's sad, but a lovely composition too.

Kate said...

The harbor looks busy and also prosperous, unlike the onlooker in the corner.

brattcat said...

This speaks of humanity so eloquently. This picture truly is worth a thousand words.

Fabien said...

Une composition originale, bravo !

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful reflective shot. Reflective in many ways. MB

Very moving picture in its sobriety... It allows to imagine hte life of the homeless, even if he(she) isn't present on the picture... Very strong : I love it.
