A Towering Reflection (Weekend Reflections # 390)

Bologna, Italy                            Asinelli Tower


Like last week, this is a reflection in a window. This impressive tower is 97 meters (318 feet) tall and was built in the 12th century. 900 hundred years old, wow! My wife climbed the 498 steps to the top and was rewarded with a spectacular view.

Unfortunately, the blue sky and tower are not the only things reflected. There are also power lines and scaffolding.  You can also see light fixtures and an air vent but they are behind the glass and not reflections.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Piazza di Spagna (Weekend Reflections # 389)

Rome, Italy

This is the Spanish Steps, Trinità dei Monti church and other buildings including Keats House which was under renovation with a false facade and a Calvin Klein poster. All of this is reflected in a Dior window.  

A few weeks ago s.c (sccollections) mentioned that he prefers to see a little piece of window frame or little piece of the facade, so I left both on the right side.  :-)

Happy Reflecting!

Fashion Island (Weekend Reflections # 388)

Newport Beach, California

What might look like a strange floating head is actually one of several mannequins on the other side of the glass.  They are mixed with the reflections of trees and people at a shopping center called Fashion Island.

Happy Reflecting!
