Port of Rochester/ Weekend Reflections

Port of Rochester, New York (U.S.A.)

The ice and water in the harbour reflected the brick buildings at the Port of Rochester last Saturday when I was visiting relatives for a few days in Upstate New York.  To me the reflection almost looks like a shiny plaid fabric. What do you think?

It's very pretty. I've never been to Rochester, but have a feeling I might get up there sometime in the near future!

I agree and See You There's comment took me back to my own plaid wearing days!
Love the shot! The seagull swooped in at just the right time.

The colors are so cold on your shot... I can almost feel the frost... Brrrr... I'm going to heat some soup, now.

Plaid, yes, you're right and the gull placed itself perfectly for the composition.

The color and the repeating windows make nice reflections. I like the bird too. :)

The repeating patterns in this shot, including the "plaid" effect, make for an eye-pleasing photo. I would have to add that it looks absolutely frigid!

I think this is a wonderful photo. And plaid works for me.

Oh so lovely. The red roof reminds me of Tadoussac in QC!

Oh, yes, polished cotton plaid, absolutely. I remember loving polished cotton when I was in junior high and learning to sew. It was much more expensive than regular cotton, but I did get one skirt, and now I can't remember what color or pattern it was, but it may have been plaid. Mom and I loved tartans.

I see the plaid resemblance. Wonderful colors in that reflection!

Pat Tillett said...

What you said is amazing, because when I first glanced at the photo, I thought the reflection looked like a plaid tablecloth!

Randy said...

Chilly but great reflection!

Jacob said...

I'll go with what you think. Another very creative shot. And the bird finishes the picture perfectly!

Jack said...

The votes are in, and "plaid" wins by a landslide! Nice reflection photo.

I agree, it does look “plaid.” The red brick color is adding a spice to pale wintry landscape. Beautiful reflections! Thank you.

Nice, but I wonder how it looks this weekend with the heavy storm over the past few day :-(
