      Thanks so much and yes I utilized as much of the puddle as I could to capture a big flooded feeling in my image.

    Great picture @JerrySimmons! Did the RiteAid parking lot flood? I don’t get out much anymore :-)

      Thanks very much! The corner of Dawson and California ave had and perhaps still does, a big puddle.

    I’m struck by the photo too.    It would be great if Jerry Simmons could describe what was going on and how he captured this image.

      Art is to be interpreted differently, what you may see someone else may see something different.GREAT picture!

      Thank you! I got down really low and touched the top of the puddle with my camera and clicked the shutter button.

        You should consider submitting to the Seattle Times Reader-Lens and their year end contest.

          Hello and thanks for the comment Alex! I will check into the contest as well since I take many different types of images.

        Wow, what an interesting and cool photo. Kind of surreal and dream-like, and somehow seems to capture the strange and disorienting times of ‘wait what day is it?’ 2020, nice work!
