Le Chat Qui Rit (Weekend Reflections # 143)

Venice, Italy

This isn't the clearest photo so I'll explain. It's a narrow walkway in Venice with a large window on the left that's reflecting the stuff on the right. The hanging sign with the picture of a laughing cat says "Self Service" and below that in small letters it says "Chat Qui Rit" which is French for Laughing Cat.
I hope you all  oops I mean y'all have a great weekend! :o)

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

Great reflection! The narrow streets and alleys of the old towns make interesting photo ops.

Great reflections, James! Have a great weekend!

Linda said...

That is a neat reflection - glad you explained it though - I thought it was another look-alike alley! Like the treatment!

Susan said...

I love seeing your scenes from abroad. They make me a bit jealous, but love them just the same. Those narrow alleys are tricky, but you nailed this shot. I love the BW too. Happy weekend James.

Lúcia said...

I love alleys, we always find many cool and different things in these places!
Have a great weekend James! ;-)

Reader Wil said...

God bless you!

Does this mean you are a Texan in Venics?
True, Venice has some very narrow alleys, but it makes that city so quaint, among other things:)

Someone told me that the food here is both overpriced and overcooked. Your photo, on the other hand, is perfect! Hope you have a good weekend too, James.

Dina said...

It IS complicated. Glad you explained.
Great result, this picture.

Now that is a great reflection.. Love the old world charm.

Nita Davis said...

Fantastic reflection and wonderful photo. And a lovely weekend to you as well, hopefully it isn't too hot.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The narrowness of the alley way offers a great opportunity for an unusual photo that almost looks like a detailed fantasy sketch! Beautiful!

Leovi said...

Excellent photo in B & W. I like this reflection, it almost seems a duplicate, very good.

Pat Tillett said...

Fantastic shot James! You must have been excited to discover that scene.

Carola said...

namaki said...

This is very close to "le Chat Qui Peche" which is a tiny alley in Paris.

This is a clever shot and I love seeing all the details in b/w!

Bises,

Marvelous shot! :-)

Valerie said...

A great shot James (your explanation did help) - the B+W treatment tops it off. Wishing you an enjoyable weekend, and thanks for hosting this excellent community blogsite.

Becky said...

An absolutely awesome shot! So interesting.

Carole M. said...

I'd love to be there seeing too ..

NixBlog said...

Great reflection, James. Works well in B&W.

Thanks for hosting!

I love cats, and this shot really "speaks to me."
Every week I am tickled with your continuing this meme.

ruma said...

Hello James.
Labyrinth of Europe is fantastic.

raf said...

Excellent, James! Captures all the charms of such a place.

Elisa said...

It´s great. And so are the explanations (lol)
Have a nice weekend

I love it!

That is a wonderful reflection shot, James. Camera Powershot 595 noted. I am wondering which camera in the series this is....

Stickup Artist said...

That sign is pretty funny. I can see how it caught your attention. I love all the metalwork on it as well. It's kind of amazing how Europe can retain centuries of charm, while here in the USA, all too often, just 50 years old is discarded, abandoned, or demolished. I like it when people respect history and try to keep it alive for future generations to enjoy.

JM said...

Brilliant reflection shot, James!

Gine said...

Tout à fait exceptionnelle, et bien sympathique !
