That is one of the better photographed reflections I have seen in a long time. Well done Jack!

Those are some sharp, reflecting sunglasses!

Tanya Breese said...

A worthwhile retirement pursuit.

Sharon Anck said...

Botanical Gardens rely on dedicated volunteers like Mike.

Cool reflection in the glasses Jack.

Lowell said...

He doesn't sound retired to me. He looks like a nice, intelligent person. A lot of principals are not that way. In fact, working with flowers would be a good pursuit for some principals I suffered under - they were bloomin' idiots!

I'm sure that when he was a principal, pupils used to call him "Hawkeye" ! :o)

I tend to agree with Lowell where principals are concerned, but this one surely doesn't look like one of those!!! And what terrific sunglasses! A great reflection for the day!!! Hope you have a super weekend, Jack!!

A high school principal? Not good memories of mine, but I like the perfect reflection in his glasses.

GREAT reflection catch!

Lew said...

Love the reflection of the listeners in the sun glasses of the speaker - great job!

That's quite a crowd you've captured there Jack :) nice one!

And Mike's sunglasses are awesome ! They look a bit like Robocop shades... ^^

RedPat said...

Good one, Jack!

Ruth Kelly said...

There I go again reading about Mike and wondering where the reflection was until I looked up and saw those magnificent reflections on his sunglasses.

Fun60 said...

He's gathered quite a crowd for his tour - must be good.

Karl Demetz said...

Fantastic reflections in those glasses, Jack.

Good catch, though those reflecting lenses remind me of cops who wear them so you can't see their eyes. Subtle effort at gaining the upper hand. Something a high school principal might use in his bag of tricks, too. Sometimes these occupations aren't all that different, regrettably.

I'd love to retire and do just that. Nice reflections!

William Kendall said...

An excellent portrait!

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

A very clear reflection. So there is life after teaching - I can't wait!

Randy said...

You captured a really nice reflection in his glasses.

Are you kidding? I love the reflection and the blue skies you share with the left coast.

EG CameraGirl said...

Seems like this is a great job for a former school principal who loved flowers!

I love the reflections.

Nice reflection shot Jack. I'll bet Mike finds life at the jardin botanique much calmer than high school!
