Auto Reflection – Old Meets New

Photo taken while a passenger riding through downtown Minneapolis. It is a reflection in the window of the car next to me while sitting at a stop light.

It is a reflection of the historical old Milwaukee Road Depot and Freight House.

This is the street level view of the old Depot.

Part of it is enclosed for indoor activities and part is still open to the outside.

Thanks to James for hosting ‘Weekend Reflections’! You can see more ‘Weekend Reflection’ photos from around the world by clicking here!

  2. Double reflection! The clock of the freight house looks like it has been superimposed on the window!

  3. Great catch!
    The driver's hands are both off the steering wheel like she doesn't want to touch it. :)
    Great shots of the old Depot.

  13. Hey....thank you all, for stopping by to say hi. Love the comments and appreciate you taking the time to leave them. They are a big part of what makes blogging fun.

    Also glad many of you are liking the new banner photo! Thank you Carolyn and Jay for your nice comments on that.

    Carolyn, I do believe it was picked up at Target last summer or spring. Might be able to find one by just looking around the Internet too. My little grandson has a couple 'Mr. ...what have you' shirts.

    OH - and about the banner since some of you have mentioned it. It is my Grand Retired Racing Greyhound Ruby and my Grandson (it is his Greyhound and he calls her Roooby Doooby).

    Have a great weekend all!

  24. Nice reflection in the car window. How could you spot it so quickly, I assume the car wasn't staying there for long.

  25. The thing I"m loving about this meme (Wkend Refl.) is that it shows so many different and new ways of looking at things! your post is a perfect example. I never would have thought of making that picture, but it's very effective.
