Taken at Lake Merritt in Lakeside Park, Oakland, California.
Does your eye go first to what’s on the inside or the outside of the shop?

Some images may appear to be so similar as to be the same, however, if you look closely, they are not. Some show more, or different, reflections than others, or show more of the inside structure of the shop. Enjoy!
I took this photo of Purple Fountain Grass against the bright blue of the hood of a parked car this afternoon. To my surprise, when I looked at the photo this evening, I discovered that there was the reflection of clouds on the hood of the car. I’ve played around with the color a little bit, both to emphasize the contrasts, and to have a little fun. But this isn’t far off from the original. The striking blue of the hood of the car was what made me think of creating an angle for the shot that would show the fountain grass against the car.
*Look closely in the bottom right hand corner and you will see the curve of the hood of the car. Look in the lower left hand corner and you will see some white in the background. That is one of the headlights.
The big reveal of the Big Orange Bird. If you haven’t read yesterday’s post with the Big Orange Bird, you should do that first. The birds are in the shop window that was closest to me when I took the photo, although the back one in flight did not show in the original post. The green trunk and other display items are in the farther window. The rest of the things you saw in yesterday’s post were reflections. Or perhaps Just an Illusion.

What’s inside? What’s outside? Is the orange bird even real?
Stay tuned to see the big reveal of the Big Orange Bird tomorrow!
