Weekend Reflection: mural and tiles

After I took a picture of this mural, I noticed it reflected in the tiles on the building across the street.  Since I also love the old tiles that decorate so many of Oakland's buildings, I had to take a picture of this one too.  I like the abstract, watercolorish, fractured quality of the reflection.  But I agree, without an explanation, you don't know what you've got here.  For more reflections, visit James' meme Weekend Reflections.

  6. I love hand painted tiles and never get to see them here in South Carolina. There are things about California that I do miss!

  10. They say after you take the shot you wanted, to turn around and see what's behind you. You proved it! Great shot.
