Reflecting Balls

We have this bowl on a table in our Living Room that sits near a window.  I noticed the balls reflecting in the daylight.  You can see me in the left one and the window in the right one.  You can see more reflections at Weekend Reflections #25

Those are very eye-catching. And, reflections have been captured that most people would never notice. Good one!

I could make a joke about us both having reflective balls this week but I won't. :) That's a cool reflection and I really like the fact that we are seeing so many reflections since the meme started.
I look forward to seeing more of your 50mm shots.

You found some neat reflections in those balls. Nice composition. I see you used a good normal lens.

I love the perspective of my 50mm lenses. I have 4 of them. I used my 1.4 SMC screw mount Takumar for the shots I posted. I have a couple more from that roll that I'll use. I took one with the lens almost wide open to compress the depth of field. Worked out perfectly.

I like that the window is in focus, or so it seems.

Nice. Two reflections for the price of one.

HELLLLOOOOOOOO!!! You got the 50mm 1.4. Yay for you. That is so exciting and here you just tried to slip it in with no one noticing.

Great catch Wayne! This is a fun reflection shot, most people would have walked right by it. I think James has opened all of our eyes a bit! Kathy
