Time Portal Gaurdian (Weekend Reflections # 149)

Florence, Italy

I had just walked through the Ufizzi Gallery Courtyard when I stepped over this puddle on my way to look for reflections on the Arno river. Good thing I decided to look back. It almost seemed like a gateway to another time.


Have a wonderful Weekend!

That is a fantastic view, James ! It quite looks like if we were about to be carry to the 17th century !

Exactly what I was thinking: the gardian of a secrete door leading to an other time...Everywhere you look at in Florence, everything is beautiful..

Hey, I know this guy! And I love your upside-down puddle portrait of him.

I bow down to your reflection awesomeness!! Amazing photo and beautifully processed as well.
I missed last week, but just did a little sneak peek of your shot along the water. I like that you left the buildings upside down.
Happy weekend James. Hope all is well.

Wow, that is a beautiful, clear reflection and it certainly does look like a portal to another time. I recall visiting the Ufizzi Gallery in 1971 when I was leading a tour group for American Youth Hosteling.

C'est ce qu'on appelle ' Baisser la garde '. Bravo !

Lois said...

Excellent shot James. It is like looking in a mirror.

Austine Etcheverry said...

Your photos are always so amazing. I love this new one.

Stickup Artist said...

The sculpture looks as if it is being formed out of the liquid! Like a metamorphosis. The variety of texture is gorgeous and I love the subtle earth tones. Quite an original image to say the very least. I don't know if I would have been able to deconstruct it without the narrative...

Fifi said...

Cette image est tout simplement fantastique ! Bravo !!! Quelle chouette idée un blog rien que pour refléter :-) Merci pour la visite chez moi !

JM said...

This is brilliant! Great job, James.
