    On saturday I ventured out on the bike to a place called the Leslie street spit. There is an old lighthouse at the end of the trail, and I thought maybe I could get some airshow shots from there but if not, maybe a good shot of the city.
    Caught the first image , off the mirror on my bike, of this lady catching a breather and enjoying the view .

    The first shot is amazing... such clarity in the reflection. Awesome. I love the second photo too - the boat and the sky really makes the picture.

    how do you do it all the time??? the mirror shot is just unreal... i thought you had frames with some pine needle back ground..then realized it was the ground....unbelievable..

    the city shot with the ship in the picture would make a post card shrivel in embarrassment....great shot there, chiller.... that one needs to be framed.....

    These are nice, and it is almost uncanny that you have only recently taken a photo of someone with the help of the mirror of your bike, when I took a photo of a couple of kids today reflected in the mirror of my car!
    Would it be this thing about the great minds and all that, you reckon? ;)

    As previously stated, the city shot with the boat and sky is quite stunning.

    But I personally like the mirror shot more. Unique. It's like you are looking through a portal to another place. The mirror blurs at the very edge. Reminds me of a sort of motion picture type effect. Like a witch looking into a crystal ball or a glimpse at a dream of another place. I dunno, but I like it. :thumbup:

    Good eye on the first, but the 2nd really moves me. Great contrast of old and new. Even without the boat its a good picture of T.O., the boat is the icing on the cake.
