Whitehall Building (Weekend Reflections # 395)

Newtown, Pennsylvania

This is one of the historic buildings in Newtown probably built in the late 1700 or early 1800s. You've probably guessed that this is reflected in a barbershop window. I think it used to be a hotel but nowadays it's home to a couple of restaurants, a candy shop and few other things.

Have a great weekend!

Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore (Weekend Reflections # 394)

Rome, Italy

This a reflection inside of  Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica. Note the famous "all seeing eye of God" window in the center and the paintings on the ceiling. This is reflected in a marble column exactly like the one in the reflection. Can you see the column? It's on the right side.

Have a Happy and Blessed Easter!

Altare della Patria/Altar of the Fatherland (Weekend Reflections # 393)

Rome, Italy

This is the National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II reflected in a puddle. I flipped the reflection upside down because I think it looks better and I didn't want Victor Emmanuel to fall off of his horse. :-)

Have a great weekend!

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!

La Tour Jean-Sans-Peur (Weekend Reflections # 386)

Paris, France                    (John the Fearless Tower)

 The tower, the sky and the other buildings were reflected in a shop window across the street (Rue Étienne Marcel). This one almost fooled me. I had to double check to make sure it was a reflection. :-)

By my standards all of the buildings in this reflection are old, but the tower in the middle is very old. It was built in the early 1400s.  I've walked passed it several times over the years but I haven't been inside.

Happy Reflecting!

Coups de Coeur (Weekend Reflections # 385)

Lyon, France

So what is it? 
Well, it's a reflection in a window of a closed shop that had one of those pull down chain link gates behind the glass. The reflection is an illuminated building with a big red beating heart in front of it. The bottom of the heart is obscured by silhouettes of the people watching the show. People were able to touch a console that allowed the heart to match their heart's rhythm with light flashes as love songs played over loud speakers.   
This was one of the installations at the Fête des Lumières. Click HERE to see a 30 second video of the installation.

Happy Reflecting and Happy Valentine's Day!

Arsenale di Venezia (Weekend Reflections # 384)

Venice, Italy

This is the entrance to the Venetian Arsenal, a former shipyard and armory complex. As you can see it was a very foggy night and the water was agitated, but I managed to capture a few distorted reflections.

This place looks very impressive and it's full of history. Click HERE if you would like to read more about it.

Venetian Grandeur (Weekend Reflections # 383)

Venice, Italy

This is the 16th century basilica San Giorgio Maggiore reflected on a vaporetto (water bus) window.  I was more impressed with the outside of the church than the inside. However the view from the bell tower was well worth the short boat ride.

Happy Reflecting!

Window Dressing (Weekend Reflections # 381)

Florence, Italy

One evening as I was walking around Florence I noticed an interesting antique shop with a fancy old mirror.  Unfortunately the shop was closed so I took a picture through the window.  As you can see I only focused on the reflection. :-)

Happy Reflecting!
