Salt Lake City Reflections

I never set out to get a reflection but after I take a photo of a beautiful building and or of water, there the reflections appear as if magic. This is the Salt Lake City Public Library in the downtown area.  The water features around the building draw you in.

This is what is called "The Gateway" in downtown Salt Lake and I was trying to capture the fountain that squirts streams of water up into the air automatically and there I ago again - another reflection.

I've never been to Salt Lake City. I like the feel of these photos, and especially the reflections. And since I'm getting ready to start an etsy shop, I am very interested in your display in the sidebar. How did you do that?

I was in Salt Lake City once, way back in 1977. I don't think any of this was there at the time! Those fountains look like so much fun. Great reflections!

I love both if these! The first one with the blues and the reflections, and the huge water area right downtown, not even in a park!

Beautiful reflections! On a side note; congratulations on finding your grandfather. I am sure it was an exciting discovery.
Have a wonderful week.

Very cool shots! One of these days I should visit Salt Lake city because my mother was born there and so were her parents and grand parents and maybe even great grand parents. :-)

oOOOOOOOOO, those were very nice photos, Ruth. Great job, whether you meant to get the reflections or not.

Glad you are doing some traveling this summer.

Thanks for your visit and comment, too. Susan
