Giotto's Campanile (Weekend Reflections # 174)

Florence, Italy  (Giotto's Campanile)

This is a reflection of the bell tower at the Florence Duomo (Cathedral).  The reflection is in the window of an ambulance. Last April I posted a reflection of the dome of the cathedral reflected in an ambulance that was parked next to this one. See it HERE.

I hope the ambulance drivers had good windshield wipers! :-)

Thanks for sharing your reflections and please have a wonderful weekend!

Please only link posts that have a photo or photos that contain a visual reflection.  Reflections can be on water,glass,metal or anything else as long as we can see the reflection.If needed, click the link near the top right corner for instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

This is super, James! (Did you know that those ambulances belong to the Confraternity of the Misericordia, who have been helping the sick in Florence since the mid-1300s?)

Great reflection! And a nice way to take photos of tall buildings without getting a sore neck.

wow, doesn't this beat all for a beautiful and confusing reflection! I'm with Lew for saving the neck to see such a tall building. One more surface I need to look. I've done it in my own, but somehow didn't think to check others' windshields. have a great weekend, James!

Carola said...

Awesome reflections. Again a master piece James! So real, so good.

Great one James. Nice that cars are colored with a shining paint. It gives a lot more opportunities.

Liz said...

Thanks for hosting.

Halcyon said...

Very cool reflection!

Kara said...

That is a really cool reflection. Funny to think that even whilst on holiday you were thinking of reflections. i just hope you were not in the ambulance.

Marie said...

Very creative! Was the tower reflected in the windshield?

Adrienne said...

Such a clear, striking reflection! I love these old European buildings in your reflections...lived in Paris for 12 years, and they just bring me back!

Malyss said...

Ma voiture est rarement si suffisamment propre qu'elle puisse attraper un reflet aussi parfait! :o)

tapirgal said...

Wow on both reflections from Florence. Not only are these some of my favorite buildings, but the reflection is real enough to make me look twice, and more. The oily-watery-floaty impression is suerb!

TheChieftess said...
