I found it so intriguing to watch and interpret the actions of this young family reflected in the wet pavement in front of a box store.

The Dutch Photomagazine Focus. www.focusmedia.nl has a new app for the iPad called "foto-van-de-dag" ("Photo of the day” ). Today, July 20-2011, they are featuring this photo.

After much negotiation, the mother and two kids headed through the sprinklers being used to keep all the plants and flowers fresh in the outdoor garden area while the father went into the store, most likely, to check out tools, electronics, automotive and sports & recreation items etc. Of course, this is all conjecture on my part :-)

 

While naturally distorted reflections provide anonymity for the family, flipping the reflection achieves a rather pleasing painterly quality and texture, in my opinion, to the series.

 

Hope your Tuesday is going well. Thanks for the visit.
