Photo Challenge — Reflect This - Day Three and Ruby Tuesday

hosted by Mary The Teach **

Reflect this is hosted by Quilly - this week only, until 8/23!

I wanted a combined entry and this is what I got... after struggling with a red ruby tea light in the pool and checking the position of the sun to see if I could get my own reflection on the water... It isn't easy to get the wanted snapshot at all!! Here is my make-up mirror, contributing with a reflection for the cause...

For those of you wondering about yesterday's reflection: it was my son taking a shot of myself but it was him reflected on my goggles...you can see my red scarf too, now that I think of it, I could have had a re-run today and a quiet Monday afternoon!!

Award time: the wonderful June from Spatter honored me with the following award.

Thank you very, very much, June!! She is a brilliant blogger herself, she has a fantastic blog and is a wonderful photographer. I never follow the tagging rules because it is so hard to select just a few bloggers. But...since it is the third Brillante Weblog I receive, I think everybody in my google- reader list should get one...!! Happy Tuesday!


  1. Two for one - aren't you clever!
    This is a lovely shot!

  2. Boo Hoo! You did what I wanted and couldn't find a 2-for-1. Great job!!!

  3. Just been checking your reflections - love them all, but the colours really stand out on this one.

  4. A two-fer! Well done! You're very welcome re the award...surprised but not really to hear you've gotten this one twice before. Totally understand about the tagging part...

  5. Oh you know you wouldn't have missed out on the FUN and the challenge of trying to get that desired shot! LOL! This one is beautiful though!

    Congrats on the award! :)

  6. Congratulations on the award. Didn't I give you one a few weeks ago??? Anyway. Love the picture too!

  7. Very nice ! Two in one, just like "Wash & Go" !
    Mr. Gattino will be green of jalousy when I tell him that Mr. Mar will attend the Formula 1 LIFE !!! That's the only sport he watches on television and NOBODY (not even cat Arthur) is allowed to make a noise !!

  8. That's a beautiful reflection and it looks like it would be a hard one to get right. You did a great job. Congratulations on the well deserved award.

  14. Mar, you never stop surprising me.
    The diversity of what you present on your blog is eminent.
    It's allways some surprises, good stories, new places, new facts,excellent photos and a good life.

    btw. I could not believe it: La Crosse and St Olaf College. I'll post about the college later this month.
