Silly Sunday

By ChiliMan
Oh man…the comments on yesterday’s upload… GrinGrinGrin

Mick, how was the meal which came out of your wife’s new wok? Did it wok your world?

-----

Alrighty, people, yesterday’s upload was the end of the pan series…but I’m gonna stick with the reflection theme and see how this one pans out. This was taken in a shopping centre called Causeway Point. The ramp you see on the left heads down to Basement 3 where I was parked. The travelator on the right leads to Basement 2 parking (where you can see cars behind the glass)…then the metal bit above my head is the travelator taking you up to Basement 1 in the shopping centre where the shops start.

You all still awake after that riveting paragraph? Excellent.

V2: The mirror with the surrounding wall.
V1: The mirror with the wall wiped out.

By the way, that ramp on the left is very smooth. One time, I wore my cheapo moccs and skidded a bit as I strided up the ramp. Never one to ignore a smooth floor, I was like, “Way-hey-hey!”

I got to the top of the ramp. Took a few steps back and did a short running start…and then went *skkssshhh* as I skated down about a third of the ramp…before traction engaged my cheapo soles. Bah. Never mind…it was a nice slide while it lasted Grin

Your camera is always with you at the right time...especially when you see good opportunities just like this one Grin Is there a cctv camera behind it? If there is I wonder what they were thinking...either a crazy man taking an image of himself or checking out the security for a future raid Tongue

On reflection I'm glad that you are looking out for more reflections. They form such a good accompaniment to your written introductions Smile
And then every day will be a Silly Sunday!

Enjoyed deciphering the backwards writing almost as much as reading your write-up and viewing the image!!

If you pointed a camera and took a few snaps in my local shopping centres you'd end up getting in trouble with the security and your problems would soon escalate if you tried to reason with them!Sad A very apt image for a Silly Sunday and not a saucepan in sight!Grin

Good shots Andrew.
And the stir fry was fine,
although she never put enough soy sauce in it
and I had to add extra !!

Your uploads and narrative are always fun, Andrew.
I like V2 with the wall showing, it helps in understaning how the picture was taken.

Diane, you MUST tell the 'Queen' about self-reflections in random shiny things. It is her ticket to becoming a Professional Photographer Crazy Person. And who wouldn't want that??

PS...going to go look at quoted comments now... Grin
