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!
