Moving Reflections (Weekend Reflections # 153)

 Florence, Italy (Piazza Della Repubblica)

This is a carousel in a public square in Florence, Italy. I was standing in the rain watching the horses go around and remembering my childhood when I noticed that the horses were decorated with little mirrors. So voila a reflection.  Actually I didn't stop with just one reflection so I'll post more from here in the future.

 Have a great Weekend!

Quand j'étais petite, il y avait une série animée pour enfants à la télé qui s'appelait: 'Le manège enchanté'. Tu l'as donc retrouvé !

This carroussel but be something to see ! That's a strange place to get reflection, but our picture is a proof that we can get them anywhere...

Surrounded by that dreamy, pastel cloud, it seems more like looking thru a hole in the clouds, or a portal, rather than a reflection!

Becky said...

Simply Awesome! You have a good eye!!!
