A Venice Canal Close-Up (Weekend Reflections # 124)

Venice, Italy (Reflected buildings)

It almost looks like I was standing in the boat but I was actually standing on a little bridge above the water.

  5. J'ai mis du temps à comprendre pourquoi toute l'image était à l'envers alors que le bateau est à l'endroit! :o)
    Cela ferait un joli tableau souvenir!

  11. Beautiful James, simply beautiful, one of your loveliest photos... Can see you had a fine time in Venice, it must be simply paradise for reflections, looks like you must have had a field day...

    Will be digging through some photos to see if I can't maybe find a reflection to share before the weekend is out... always a pleasure to stop by here.

  18. James: I can just imagine my husband standing on one of those little bridges in Venice — his dream destination — taking photos of the boats, the ripples, and the reflections. One of these days...
    Meanwhile, your photo is fabulous. Venice is fast becoming one of my dream destinations, too.

  27. This looks like a gorgeous interpretation by an artist's oils. Even better, it is the photographer artist, James!

    Venice makes a camera happy.

  35. Beautiful shot with the slight distortions, so clear but dreamlike ar the same time. Isn't Venice a grand place for photography?

  36. Surtout ne pas bouger... Superbe!
    Troquer les pixels contre de la gouache ou de la peinture a aquarelles et cela devient une formidable peinture abstraite.
