Look closely, Mel Gibson

This post is about reflection, and I’m hoping Mel Gibson is doing a lot of it. He sounds deeply troubled. I know divorce is a crazy-maker, but yowza. I went through my divorce around the same time as the Brad Pitt-Jennifer Aniston debacle, and the whole time I was so grateful my breakup wasn’t done in the public eye. Can you imagine having your divorce being played out on the cover of every tabloid? Blech.

Now for a different kind of reflection….

Reflection 1

I took this in downtown Lititz, PA, in the early afternoon. The sky was crystal clear, so there were lots of reflections in the shop windows. I liked the look of the chandelier, then noticed the trees mirrored in the background. I moved until I had them together, which is tricky when you want to keep yourself out of the picture.


Downtown Lititz again.


I’m just now noticing the fabrics are red-white-and-blue. There were lots of flags and stuff left over from the Fourth of July. I love the look of flowers in white pitchers. Old architecture too.


Downtown Lancaster, PA. There’s a short stretch of very cool stores north of downtown in the 300 block. I liked the neon KOOL cigarette sign and the memorabilia in this window. Then I noticed the reflection of a guy and his dog across the street and snapped this when they paused on the sidewalk.

So, next time you see something you like in a display window, look a little closer. As for Mel Gibson, well, hopefully he’ll look into his soul and fix a few things. Soon.

Have a great weekend, everyone….

    Via the Joy Behar Show page on Facebook: “Great news. BP says the well is finally contained and no more oil is spewing out. Now, if only that same technology could be used on Mel Gibson’s mouth.”

    Great pictures, as always!

  2. Great pictures! I’m only a couple hours from Lancaster, and I don’t think I’ve been there since I was little. I think a road trip is in order.

  3. Thank you. This was my first visit–had heard about the Amish country for years, but never made it. Have fun if you go!
