Default Reflections - Puddles from the World Expo !

This area at the World Expo in Shanghai is a huge blessing, both for parents of young children bored with queuing and looking at buildings, and for those of us having walked upwards of 20 kms a day !
My daughter and I slipped off our walking shoes and enjoyed a lovely 15 minute feet cooling paddle in this maybe 1/4 inch (say 1 cm) deep paddling pool - as you can see, we were far from alone !

OK - the one of the little boy doesn't have a full reflection .. but I really liked the shot !

What FUN! Both the pictures and the joy on the faces of those enjoying the water.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments - yes it was great to watch, so much happiness from something so simple as a (football pitch sized - it is the World Expo GW ) puddle !

Especially for Ronny here are a couple more of the toddler in the last shot above. She was having such great fun splashing her sister & mother but eventually fell over and was carried off with tears running down her face (more at leaving the water than the fall i think) !

Looks very refreshing. Something we could use some of right now. Rain! Hopefully later today.

I really like the last one in the first series. That is a top notch shot.
