It recently rained in New York for the first time in ages, and offered up some wonderful opportunities to capture reflections in the pools of rainwater. Here are a few rainy day reflections of New York modes of transport.

As there has been no weekly photo challenge this week, I’d love to offer this up as a theme for anyone wanting to join in. Just title your post ‘Reflections’, tag it with ‘postaday’ and add a pingback to this page in your post. I’ll publish any pingbacks I get into the comments stream so anyone else who participates can find your entry too. I’d love to see your interpretations. Pass it on!

Here’s my Reflections post from my nature blog.


About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    Ailsa – what gorgeous reflections! They look more like paintings – the sort of wonderful abstract ones you’d see in a gallery, with the paint all kind of daubed and blended!
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my contribution:
