Colorful Reflection

On my way to our bank I spotted this exit ramp from an underground parking garage with bright primary color stripes... and I thought of James and his Weekend Reflections

Manila, 2010

I couldn't pick just one to post. Which image do you think tells the story better?

The first has more mystery. The second tells more, but is less "more" in this case?

I agree with Kay, the first one is the mystery one and sometimes mystery is better than the obvious!!
Have a beautiful weekend, Francisca!

Wow, I'd be so dazzled by those I'd probably crash my car just looking at them! Agree with the first two, the first picture has more punch.

cieldequimper said...

I too agree. The second one is a nice explanatory footnote! Incredible colours!

Very colorful, Francesca! Good it's in the parking garage and not under a bridge or something like that! I know (from own experience) when taking pics we want the pic!

Jacob said...

So, you've never heard of flipping a coin? ;-)

Nah...they're both good but the first one is my favorite as it compresses the essentials in a red-tinged vitality!

Pat Tillett said...

I prefer the second, but they are both good.

Cezar and Léia said...

I think I prefer the first one.
I am sure I would quite distracted by all those lines and vibrant colours!

joo said...

I prefer the first one, but both are cool! Really interesting post Francisca.
Hugs:)

I think you need both photos to complete the story, Francisca! The bright colors are amazing! Is this the entrance to the circus parking lot? ;-)

Evelyn said...

The first one for me. Love those colours. Happy weekend Francisca.

I like the first one. Unfortunately, for me, I am a "KOPI OH" driver. I am not in a habit of looking into mirrors.

Thanks for feeling for me. The news affected me more than I thought it would. Now I am waiting if they are going to flood the dam.

Dina said...

From the first photo I'd never guess where all those colors came from!

Thanks for your interesting comment on the choirs. You might enjoy this too:

I like the composition of the second photo. To show the mirror image and what it is reflecting tells the
story and the creative process.

Great colors on this shot !
Stunning !

Dina said...

To answer your question, no, I didn't pay the 90 shekels to hear the concert. But my nun friends got free tickets and they told me how good it was.

Fabien said...

Great colours and original point of vue

Birdman said...

Some wonderful colors here. Ya never know when you get a chance to catch one of these shots.

VP said...

This is the kind of pictures (and reflections) I like more. Almost casual shots you 'see', ready to be caught!

Pagan Sphinx said...

They're both excellent and beautifully composed. Amazing how such ordinary things can make such terrifically creative photos. Well done!

That is so neat! I like the second photo so much better. What great colors.
