La tête dans les nuages - Reflection


Not sure whether we have "our head in the clouds"


but we are all a bit "fragile"


Bon weekend!


Spotted in a vacant store window on Rue de Turbigo. The shop was being renovated and these "fragile" models had been covered and protected for the transformation.

To see more reflections, go to James' Newtown Area Daily Photo.

So true! x

My 'tete' is definitely not in the clouds, but rather looking down at all the snow and ice so I do not slip, for I am 'fragile'!

Magnifique photo artistique, Genie! J'apprécie beaucoup.
Un jour, j'ai acheté des mannequins vierges, comme ceux-ci, et je les ai peints. Chacun différemment, en laissant faire mon imagination. Je les ai disposés dans ma galerie, entre les tableaux, et j'ai eu beaucoup de succès.
Donne-moi ton email personnel et je t'enverrai des photos.
Bonne journée!

Wow! The illusion of heads in the clouds is there. Nice capture Genie.

One street inside the window shop! This picture is perfect, amazing clods and so beautiful sky reflected there!
Very well done!
Léia :)

Challenging composition, Genie. And you're right; we're all fragile, some more than others.

Forest Dream Weaver said...

WOW again,a powerful image Genie.It could easily be a contemporary art installation!

Elizabeth said...

How interesting! Good juxtaposition.

Jacqueline Howett said...

At first glance in its thumb image it looked liked mountains and people as big as the mountain reaching to the sky. It s larger image is another thought and fragile as you say,suits it well.

I thought they were headless for a moment. Love the cloud reflection. Good spot on this one Genie.
Bon weekend,

"Fra...gee...lay, that must be Italian!" "Uh, I think that says FRAGILE, dear."

Every time I see the word fragile, I think of the scene from A Christmas Story.

Very cool picture.

Très jolie photo... au hasard d'une rue on a souvent de belles surprises mais il faut voir et tu vois les choses, car tu as la sensibilité du coeur, des yeux et des mots...

Bien vu, vraiment ! Superbe, l'opposition entre les mannequins encore emballés et le ciel...

Great photo! I don't think my head is in the clouds but I'll be the first to admit, I'm fragile.

Sylvia K said...

What a terrific capture for the day and what marvelous reflections! And, yes, I frequently do -- even after all these years -- have my head in the clouds! Great post for the day, Genie! Have a fun weekend!

What an interesting reflection - a perfect capture.

James said...

This is awesome and sort of similar to my Something Sighted reflection. :)

Clytie said...

Love it! You made me smile out loud! What a great Reflections shot!

biebkriebels said...

Very nice photo with the heads in the clouds.

Lucy the Cat said...

Perfect verbiage for this shot! I love the clouds and buildings in this reflection!

Alexa said...

I know exactly how they feel! :~} Great capture, Genie, and I love the way it almost seems like a b&w image with spots of red.

Karen said...

It's marvellous!

Lesley said...

oh, very good observation!

Cildemer said...

He he he! Love it!

Big bisous et belle fin de semaine, Genie****

Rajesh said...

Fantastic reflection and very well said.

M said...

Truly the coolest photo I have seen in a long time! Love the cloud reflection and how it makes the mannequins appear headless. And, yes, we are all fragile so we must handle with care.

Jack said...

Genie, a very special image. I'm sure we all know fragile people with their heads in the clouds.

Randy said...

That's the way I felt today thinking about the weekend ahead. Nice reflection.

Shell Sherree said...

What a wonderful image, Genie ~ and philosophical at that. Next time I'm feeling fragile, I might slap a little of that tape on my forehead and see if it makes a difference. Bon weekend!

Gine said...

Excellent ... fait pour les rêveurs ... Attention, ne pas casser !

Pat Tillett said...

To all, I have been in airports and meetings for the past two days but I loved reading your comments (and compliments!)... I have visited each of your blogs and wish you each a wonderful weekend.

Many thanks to all of you lovely, albeit fragile from time to time, people and sweet animals!

Bisous,
