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!

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

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

  19. 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.

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

  21. 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.

  29. 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!

  42. 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...
