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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    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 !

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

  37. 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! ;-)

  39. 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.
