Weekend Reflections: Friends and Strangers

I took this photograph on one of the last warm days in late October.

I liked this sign in the window of a bar, so I stationed myself where I could catch reflections of strangers approaching from each side. 

Just as I began to push the button, the girl in the center recognized a girl in the approaching group, broke into a big smile and opened her arms for a hug.  Decent timing, I thought.

That's way cool. And a good way to look at life though of course one might be disappointed...

I love the effect, especially when combined with the quote on the glass (seems to match the emotion of the girl). Great shot.
