Merry Christmas 2011! (Weekend Reflections # 118)

Florence, Italy 

This is a slightly distorted reflection of Vicki and me in a Christmas decoration in the window display of the Salvatore Ferragamo store in Florence, Italy. There's a larger reflection of me in this picture too. The Christmas Tree is from Picnik.

I've tried capturing a reflection in a bauble and never really succeeded so I'm quite envious of this shot.

Carolyn Ford said...

Merry Christmas everyone!

Don't you love round reflections? It is fun to see things all distorted. Nice add with the picnik tree.
Happy Christmas James.

Antonette said...

Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to get some really good reflections. So I used one from early fall. The bird gives off a ever so slight reflection in the shallow water.

Ann said...

I like the tree, how did you do it?

Merry Christmas, and thanks for an enjoyable year.
