Boy Reflecting amid Reflections by 

I took this picture on Apr. 23/08 in Nathan Phillips Square (the City Hall Square) here in Toronto. The Square has a large pool, which is used as a skating rink in winter and as a reflecting pool in summer. In between those two season, as then, it is simply empty. In the morning of the day I took this shot, it rained for a while. However, by the time I got there in the afternoon, the rain was well over, but several huge puddles remained in the otherwise empty pool. The building reflected in the pool is Toronto’s Old City Hall. (The well known new one is on another side of the square.) The boy in the image had been playing in the pool with 2 other youngsters. They were running about and often stopping to pose and look at their reflections in the puddles. Then, for some reason, the boy decided to sit down in the pool for a few minutes. I grabbed the opportunity to take this photo.

I’m a photographer living in Toronto, ON, Canada. I enjoy photographing the architecture, street life, plants and water fowl in my home city. I also love travel photography and capturing reflections on all possible reflective surfaces.
