When my son brought his Argentine fiance to the USA for a visit, they had to go to a donut shop so she could taste a donut for the first time. They don't have donuts in Argentina, but she had seen them on the Simpson's and was curious about them.

Such a clear reflection. We have Dunkin Donut in the midwest. I couldn't wait to taste my first Krispy Kreme Donut.

The reflection is so clear and perfect, I like a lot the bus with the orange signs and the sunny street.Charming reflections!

Tim Horton's is the doughnut shop of Canada. I'm not so fond of doughnuts though, so I don't frequent the place much.

You've caught a really nice reflection here! I really need to visit Hartford one of these days. I love the architecture.

Great reflection shot. That glass looks like a mirror.

Excellent reflection on this. It's so clear.

Dunkin Donuts is everywhere! Except San Francisco. I'm always shocked they don't have one. Still, It's almost strange to visit a town in New England that doesn't have one. My town of 8,000 people has 4 of them. Two are within 100 yards of each other.

When the picture came up, I thought I was in London England-England.

That is ironic...yesterday when I was grocery shopping and looking at coffee I saw a bag of Dunkin Donuts coffee and thought to myself are those shops even still around...and then you post this today.

By the way, that is an awesome reflection shot.

Never seen one in France (thankfully - sorry about that but we have enough McD's, KFC's and Starbucks around now for my palate). Believe it or not, I've never yet set foot in one in the USA even though I adore Berliners (which I guess is the original doughnut).

The reflection is awesome!

I know Hartford is a good place to visit :-) but my ties are in Washington and Oregon... ;-)

What a contrast between the lowly donut shop and the wonderful stately building reflected in its window! Another winner.

Very nice reflection, Jack, but being a Southern girl, my heart belongs to Krispy Kreme, especially when the "hot" sign is flashing. Well, to be honest I have not had one in years but they are delish.

Bon weekend,
Genie

Of all the Dunkin Donuts, only one captures that lovely scene.

Very pretty reflection! The Dunkin' Donuts shop here closed down a long time ago.

Great reflection! Save me a chocolate donut!

Essence of joy for the sense of sight and taste.

Please have a good weekend.

Great reflection. I can't remember the last time I had a donut. I miss them every now and then.

I love the way you captured some of that city spirit on this display... Nice work.

Farmchick said...

Well....I am a Krispy Kreme kind of girl myself, but would not pass up a doughnut here. Can you say, "Lemon creme filled doughnut"? THE BEST!

Let's say that coffee is quite a different thing for us: we are probably the only country without Starbucks!
