Beauty in Unexpected Places


  1. What in the world IS that? I am no good at deciphering this sort of puzzle. But you're right, it is very beautiful, and wherever it is, for me it certainly will be unexpected.

  2. I think it's the sun reflecting off the bottom of a pool with a small tile pattern on the bottom. Probably not taken today...I thought it was cold in NZ!

  3. just as Sam does, wethinx its water (with movement/ripples/yadda-yadda) and its in some type of tiled pool.

    since there a straight edge on the right-side, we'd say its either a wading pool,
    pooled water in a shower; which would account for boththe apparent shallowness AND the water-movement.

    dooze weeze gotz da prize? :-)

    thank you for another intrigue, Kathy.


  4. Proof that the Romans arrived in the land of the long white cloud but then got a bit side tracked.

  5. I love water...so peaceful. Washes all the cares away. Love the photo.

  6. Realised I haven't stopped by in a good while. How nice then, to land back here and see such a fantastic, arresting image. Great stuff.

  7. With that grid, it must be a window reflection.

  8. Footbath at the local swimming pool, complete with halogen lighting?

    It is lovely though! ;)

  9. awards for you on mine!

  10. Thanks for your comments everyone. It's midsummer sunshine sparkling on a fountain in the heart of Auckland city. (Just outside the art gallery of course! Where else would I go? )
