Get the Balance Right (Weekend Reflections # 125)

Florence, Italy

This is a window display at the Louis Vuitton store in Florence, Italy. Look at the gold ball. Can you see me? I'm there but my reflection is tiny. Maybe you can see the building that's behind me. It's the same building that's reflected at normal size further up in the photo.

Sorry James, if you may like to delete no. 38 -something went wrong in the internet connection:(
Good you mentioned where you were standing -I overlooked that one! Happy weekend!

Alexa said...

Peekaboo, James—this shot is brilliant!

Bibi said...

A reflection within a reflection within a reflection....wonderful colors, too.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Wonderful sense of illusion and reality enigmatically embedded! And what great carnival colours!

Dorian Susan said...

James I bow down in honor of your amazing reflectioness! This is magnificent. The display in the window is amazing in itself and then to add your reflections to it takes this over the top. You better print and frame this one! Well seen and captured. Happy weekend my friend. Maestro.

namaki said...

Wow ! What a scene ! a puzzling reflection ! Great job !

Dianne said...

the window is fantastic!!
the striped curtain adds such a wonderful dimension to the reflection

NatureFootstep said...

lol, really a cool shot. Love it.

Kay L. Davies said...

Fabulous photo, James. It can't be that you're always in the right place at the right time, it must be your great eye for a good shot. Or a combination of both.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Only you could find two reflections in the same shot and have them be different images. It's like a sixth sense for you, isn't it. Both fascinating.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Beautiful photo.
The reflection is amazing.

Regards and best wishes

Karl said...

WOW !! This is really great!!

Marie said...

Excellent! I think I can see your reflection in the big bowl :-)

s.c said...

First compliments for the display. Seconds compliments for you capturing this incredible reflection and display. A great one James.

Kaori said...

So many details in this photo! Awesome shot. And also very cool I just walked past the same display at our Vuitton here in Tokyo :D

Jientje said...

A perfect double reflection shot James, I love the reflection of the building in that ball. You have a great eye for reflections!

NixBlog said...

What a fantastic capture, James! Reflections galore as well as an extravaganza of colour and form.
Thanks for hosting this meme!

Dina said...

That's so clever, your photo and the way of advertising the bag.

Small City Scenes said...

Fantastic. Very creative. MB

Southwest Arkie said...

Fantastic reflections!

TheChieftess said...

Fun shot James!!! Well done!!!

Carola said...

Awesome shot. A master piece. The reflections with this colors, magical. But the small reflections from you in the ball are art work.

Mama Zen said...

Wow! Amazing capture!

Halcyon said...

Very cool reflection! I especially like the auto-portrait in the ball. So creative!

Stickup Artist said...

Great colors and patterns at play here. And with all that going on, I noticed the tiny reflection in the ball right away. Quite an impact on this gloomy, gray morning!

imac said...

Really great and interesting reflection James

Owen said...

A double reflection ! Excellent. If you had brought a large mirror with you, you could have set it facing the window and the gold ball, and created a reflecting refection to infinity between them... In any case, great fun, though I wonder what is in the bag that makes it heavier than two elephants ???

Tito Eric said...

Utterly splendid shot!

My entry #87 - Panglao Island - was made erroneously. You may delete it if you want. The actual post I have in mind I will enter on the next list.

Sorry.

Thérèse said...

Awesome! I presume that the stores have the same Theme all over the world. I admired the one in Scottsdale as well...

Sar@h said...

I like the color and the reflexion looks like ghost ! Nice !
