La Reflection-teria (Weekend Reflections # 279)

Florence, Italy                               at night


This woman was too interested in the gelato to notice the two reflections right next to her. Reflected advertisements for Carrera and Fendi sunglasses. Unfortunately for her the gelato shop was already closed.

I hope you have an excellent weekend!

This is the place to see and share reflections. Click the rules tab above for more information. 
A Reflection =  An image given back by a reflecting surface.  A PHOTOGRAPH of a REFLECTION.
 Please don't link written reflection posts or photos that don't have reflections. Thanks!

I confess, I might have been paying more attention to the Gelato too! It's been many years since I had the real Italian stuff while walking the cobblestones... Just a note to thank you for this link up. I love all the things that pop out to me because I have the notion of "reflections" always in the back of my mind. A true journey of discovery that I so enjoy!

It has a great "Big Brother is Watching" feel. That guy really has his eye on her!

Oh no! There's nothing worse than not being able to get an ice cream when you desperately want one :)

I love the reflections. The design your own ice cream sounds good too.

Just dreaming aout what she missed! Great story, great reflection!

Valerie said...

Good enough to eat? Brilliant capture..

Poor lady must have been confused by all the sensory overload. I'm off gelato for the moment as I am losing weight and that would really kill my diet!

Nora said...

Wonderful reflection and story!

Norma Ruttan said...

those reflections are rather eerie! I have had gelato only once...and yummy it was!

Was the shop with the sunglasses still open??? Na, that would be my " gelato"!

jeannettestgermain said...

Yes, gelato and prosciutto with mozzarella cheese are my fave food in Italy... and these Gelaterias can be closed early!

A Quiet Corner said...

Yeah! "eye catching reflections"! I would have been more interested in the Gelato as well...:)JP

Quand on voit écrit Gelateria on pense toujours à l'Italie et à ses bonnes glaces: quel dommage que la boutique soit fermée !
bon week-end,

Who could blame her ... like the child with her nose pressed up against the candy shop window ... gelato surely takes precedense over a mere reflection. Wonderful, charming capture, James ...

This is the start of a thriller, right?

Valerie said...

Yep, I'd also be "eyeing" off the gelati, trusting I was wearing the right glasses!! Another fun post James. Happy weekend to you.

Cool shop.

Looks like bieb looking inside but she was not in Italy recently as far as I know. Last time 2012.

I'm a day late, but you photo takes me right back to my fave town for gelato. Have you been to Vivoli?

wounderful reflection

lorik said...

I like the your clever play with reflection...and the way the man seems to be watching over, maybe guarding..the gelato. I can imagine how she feels too:)
