Torre del Mangia (Weekend Reflections # 131)

Siena, Italy


 -Attention: Linky Tools is working again!

Sometimes you have to look down to see what's above. This is the Torre del Mangia reflected on a car. The Torre del Mangina is the second tallest bell tower in Europe. A few months ago on my other blog I posted a photo of the tower from the opposite side. Click here if you want to see it.


Please only link posts that have picture/s of reflections. 

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

Oh, that's brilliant, James! We see alike! Reminds me of my car reflection in Vienna shot. And I clearly remember your wonderful monochrome Siena bell tower image, too.

I always appreciate a clean car for a reflection! Nice.

Malyss said...

Thanks to you, I'm travelling back to Italy, and I remember the mood, the scent, the air..Ooops, encore oublié de parler français!:o)
Bef, j'adore retourner en Italie grâce à toi, merci!

Ellie said...

What a lovely clear reflection you captured there. That car must have been very clean.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

James, I loved that area of Italy and remember Siena well. Your reflection looks like a fish-eye lens - fabulous!

I have been posting reflections on my Friday posts but been too busy to be able to properly participate. I leave for Paris on Sunday but will be online for sure! Please send me an email. I have a question.

Susan said...

Ah, the ol' reflections on the car trick...great one. This one you got a great mirror. I'm not usually out shooting in the right light for these...but when I try to capture one, always get strange looks. I can handle it thought. Happy weekend James.

Alexa said...

Interesting perspective on the tower, James. I've only ever seen it from the Piazza del Campo, but I love your reflective view!

Gine said...

Impossible de mettre un lien, alors que 31 l'ont pu avant moi !J'en trépigne !
Alors, en attendant je commente ta photo. Je savais la place en pente, mais de la voir à l'envers : très fort et très beau !

What a great reflection shot! Love how much of the bell tower that you can see.

Linda said...

Love, love, love that shot! What a magnificent image reflected! I will link up in the morning...maybe Mr. Linky will be better by then!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Adore how the reflection seems to arch a lower frame of the Piazza reality! Interesting colours and defined shapes!

Still can't link up so here's mine:

Cool shot James!!!

Melissa B. said...

Everything in Italy looks like it came right out of a painting, doesn't it? Bravo!

A Capital Idea!

Lúcia said...

You're a very good observer indeed!
It's so difficult to take a different photo of a touristic place, but somehow you always get it! ;-)

Scrappy Grams said...

I am so happy that you continue to host this meme. I think it's my favorite one. ~hugs~

Owen said...

Hi James,
Hoping all is well in your part of the world, just slipping in here late on a Sunday night in Paris, earlier where you are I guess...

I think it is great that you are keeping the reflections flowing, I certainly keep an eye out for them when out and about, with you in mind.

Wren said...

Wow. Great photo.

imac said...

Tinsie said...
