Lost in Reflection

Lambertville, New Jersey

One day while I was out photographing reflections this man appeared in the window for a split second just as I took the shot, then he disappeared.  It happened so fast that I had to check the photo afterward to make sure I really did see a face. He kind of reminds me of Rasputin.

  2. Eerie and wonderful at the same time. An apparition! One of those shots you couldn't have planned if you tried. I can't get over how he's staring straight into the camera!

  5. Love it! Is he inside the room peering out at you or is he a spirit floating above the building behind you and you caught his reflection? Great shot!

  6. He does indeed look like Rasputin ... hopefully he doesn't wield the influence over viewers of this picture that he did over the Tsar :0 This was a wonderfully unexpected catpture ... you were lucky on this day.

  15. What a great capture! He really reminds one of Rasputin but I guess he would live somewhere more fancy.

  18. Your timing is always right on. Maybe it was Rasputin's ghost.

  21. I'm sooooooooooooo envious of this W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L shot that I could cry James... :D
    Congrats, it's the kind of pic that make me say "wow", even though I do it quite often when I visit your blogs. ;-)

  22. That was a lucky shot! I also like your photo of the Paris umbrella. I have two Paris umbrellas, one black and one white, but the white one is different from the one you show. I think I showed it in one of my post in August 2013 called Rain in Georgia, after it had rained here for more than 6 weeks. Of course any Paris umbrella will show the Tour Eiffel!

  25. Oh My. And that strange, ghostly face (more apparition) is framed perfectly in that one empty shape through window and reflections.

  26. That''s what I was thinking! He looks like a crazy ghost. Great capture.
