I don't have a great deal to say about this shot other than that it was one of my many attempts to shoot something for the Photo Friday Sunset challenge. In the end though, I decided that I preferred the shot I put up on Thursday. Nonetheless, I do quite like this one.

A friend's wife once told me that I have a very strong destiny. I don't know how much of that I believe, but I do believe that we meet certain people in life for a reason. Whether it be for me to help them or them to help me.

Cool shot

Thanks Rannie. As for destiny, I think I'm with Karl Marx on this one:

"Men [sic] create history, but not under circumstances of their own choosing."

Nice one! Again... Is that your hand to the left? And if yes, where's the rest of you?!!!;-)

Carlo: yes, it's my hand. As for the rest of me: I guess that's the great thing about reflections, some things are recorded while others are not.

By the way, has nobody noticed the ghostly face yet?

I can see the ghostly face faintly on the left. It's very faint though!

Such a magical photograph. Beautiful, as always.

I see two faces... go me. And at first I thought that orangey-round thing was a hood someone was wearing and it really freaked me out. Just a little.
I like this a lot. Nice

Hey... is that Jesus smiling on the left?

Thanks everyone.

Jessyel: I suspect not ;-)
