Rowing on the Arno River (Weekend Reflections # 123)

Florence, Italy

Thankfully I have lots of photos in my archives because I haven't taken any pictures this month/year.
I really need to get out there. 

I hope you all had a great week, but if not, hopefully the weekend will make up for it. :)

 
If needed, please click the link near the top right corner for Weekend Reflections instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

Florence is so beautiful. I could fill up a blog just with photos from Florence. Love your reflection today.

Oh that boat looks tiny, caught between 'two worlds' !

Dina said...

That's what archives are for -- great photos like this one.

Ah, l'Arno.. "Chambre avec vue", de E.M. Forster! que de beaux souvenirs, aussi bien litteraires que rééls!Un rêve!

Your reflections shots are always an inspiration James!

Laura said...

I like what dawn treader said, it is what I was thinking too!

MarieElizabeth said...

I know what you mean, I've been caught up in other life things and new photos aren't coming as quickly as they should! Your archives are lovely.

Super reflection James - looks wonderful.

Lew said...

Clearly you still have some great reflections from your trip! And also clearly the US flood plain rules do not apply to the Arno.

sherri said...

a lovely scene. the reflections are fantastic.

Dianne said...

absolutely beautiful
I especially like the reflections of the 2 people, sweet

Alexa said...

I'm in the same boat (so to speak). But you can show me Florence any time!

great shot! :)

Dorian Susan said...

Yes indeed you better get out there! I'm counting on your awesome eye....where this week's image provides a perfect example of what I'm saying. The kayakers provide a wonderful scale to show off the buildings. Well spotted and captured.

Gemma Wiseman said...

A striking detailed reflection! Love how the reality is half the image and the reflection is the other! Very dramatic!

Valerie said...

A marvellous reflection James. Very busy and interesting. Thanks for sharing your photographic images and for hosting this site - in my book, it matters not whether the pix are current or historic; the merit is still there! Happy weekend.

Carola said...

Wonderful reflections. James, you realy are a reflection master.

Emille said...

What I like is that the reflections have a different color than the real buildings! Hope you're doing well, James?

Mama Zen said...

Beautiful reflection! I would love to visit Florence.

NatureFootstep said...

that rowing boat looks so small on that river. Almsot lost in the reflections.

namaki said...

Beautiful ! reflection through a painter's eye ! The colours of the buildings are delicious !

Linda said...

Loved the photo! I wanted to participate in the weekend reflections, but I have a self-imposed 1 blog a day rule, and I already participate in Friday's Fences...seems there are too many things to link to, and participate in. I could spend all my time just blogging! Anyway, I enjoy the photos. Happy weekend!

Carolyn Ford said...

such an awesome photo...wOw, I love it!

judi/Gmj said...

Thanks for continuing to host fun stuff.

Deb said...

I'm hoping to visit Florence some day. In the mean time I can enjoy your lovely photos! I love those colors, so Italian!
It's been a while since I played, but I found a good one this week. I'm doing project 366, so I've taken a lot of photos lately! Hope you're well?

Catherine said...

this is a lovely tranquil shot - quite beautiful....

Marie said...

Very beautiful picture(s). That is the reason why I like ancient architecture much better than modern architecture...

Southwest Arkie said...

How small one must feel sitting in that tiny boat! Beautiful photo!

Stickup Artist said...

Oh Wow, how awesome! My brother and his wife just got back from Italy and they raved about it. Hopefully, I can get there one day. Your pictures are the clincher and I've been totally knocked out by each and every image you post from your trip...
