Boutique de Montres de Luxe MATY (Weekend Reflections # 415)

Paris, France

A reflection in the window of  MATY, a watch and jewelry store.This picture is 100% reflection plus there are lights reflected on the wet road so maybe it should be considered 110% reflection. :-) 

I know it's sometimes hard to tell reflections from non reflections without some perspective or clues. In this case the clues are the words on the street signs and on the side of the opera house.

I'm praying for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Happy Reflecting!

Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses (Weekend Reflections # 414)

Newport Beach, California

This is a reflection in a shop window on Balboa Island. 
Summer is fading like the reflection. The cars and buildings are reflected and the "Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses" sign is actually a pillow for sale inside the shop.

I'm praying for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Happy Reflecting!

Newtown Reflections (Weekend Reflections # 413)

Newtown, Pennsylvania

Brick buildings, a streetlamp and a few other things reflected in the window of a restaurant. Yep, you guessed it, it's an Italian restaurant. :-) The flag was inside the restaurant and is not a reflection.

Have a great weekend!

"Get Your Head Out of the Gutter" (Weekend Reflections # 412)

Florence, Italy

I've heard the saying as "get your mind out of the gutter" and "get your head out of the gutter". Of course no one has said either to me.  :-)
I thought about saying it to the man in the reflection as a joke but I don't speak Italian and I'm pretty sure it wouldn't translate even if I did. :-) 

Have a great Weekend!

Dallas Reflection (Weekend Reflections # 411)

Dallas, Texas

This is an old photo from when I lived in Dallas.  The bird on the left was enjoying the cool water while standing on a tree branch reflection.  :-)

My old back is starting to feel better, and it's not very hot so I need to get out and find some new reflections. 

Thanks for all of your kind comments last week. 

Happy Reflecting!

Neshaminy Creek (Weekend Reflections # 410)

Newtown, Pennsylvania

The shallow water was moving and a breeze had just started to blow when I took this shot. 

Sorry I wasn't around last week. I've been having back problems. :-(

I hope you enjoy the reflections and have a wonderful weekend!

Palazzo Vecchio (Weekend Reflections # 406)

Florence, Italy

I was about to re-enter the Uffizi Gallery  from the rooftop terrace when I noticed this partial reflection of the Palazzo Vecchio. The couple seemed amused that I was taking their picture. I'm sure they didn't realize that I am reflection addicted and they were engulfed in a reflection. :-)

Happy Reflecting!

1776 Historic Reflection (Weekend Reflections # 405)

Newtown, Pennsylvania

July 4th 1776 was the day that the United States declared independence from England. Five months later during the Revolutionary War, General George Washington and/or his staff were inside the white brick building that is reflected in this window.

From a historical marker: "Prior to 1750, there existed a dwelling on this site, 1 East Washington Avenue, which had been built by Shadrach Walley, Newtown's first settler. Amos Strickland, a farmer and entrepreneur from Philadelphia, bought the property in 1760. In 1763, he built a two-story brick residence, firing the bricks in his kiln on the outskirts of town. During the American Revolution, Strickland hosted George Washington's staff and captive Hessian officers in December 1776."

Happy Independence Day to the USA and Happy Canada Day!

A Cracked Window (Weekend Reflections # 404)

Newtown, Pennsylvania

No earthquake damage here, just a reflection in a cracked window.

This is the top of a building, a tree, the sky and some power lines reflected in a window. All very normal; however, if you look closely, you should be able to see a crack in the window that makes the building look cracked. Can you see the crack? It starts near the top left corner, goes in a semi circle, and splits through the reflection.

Happy Reflecting!

Stepping stones ? (Weekend Reflections # 403)

New York, New York

Mistaking this reflection for a stepping stone could cause one's feet to get wet.

There's a Light Fixture in My Coffee (Weekend Reflections # 401)

Trevose, Pennsylvania

One Saturday morning at Erwin's Country Kitchen...

Me: Waitress, there is a ceiling light fixture in my coffee! 

Waitress: Don't worry. It comes free with every cup. 

Sorry. I couldn't resist.  :-)

Cool Springs Station (Weekend Reflections # 400)

Oatman, Arizona

This is a reflection of a desert mountain in a restroom mirror.  The W/C was inside but the place to wash your hands was outside which made for much nicer views. :-) 

Happy Reflecting!

Hôtel de Ville, Lyon (Weekend Reflections # 399)

Lyon, France

This is Lyon's city hall building reflected in a shop window in Place des Terreaux. The shop was closed as you might have guessed because of the gate pulled down behind the glass. Lyon is a fun and beautiful city. I'd love to go back someday.

Happy Reflecting!

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!

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!

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. :-)

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.  :-)

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!
