The Leaning Reflection of Pisa (Weekend Reflections # 288)

Pisa, Italy

It felt a little surreal to see this tower in person because I'd seen so many pictures of it over the years. Sort of like seeing the Eiffel Tower or the Empire State Building for the first time.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter and thanks for hosting :)

Awesome reflections!

Adrienne said...

Perfect capture! I love how iconic landmarks like this are often surrounded by the day-to-day life of the locals. That feeling comes through as you capture the reflection in a shop window...Local color and tourist spot all in one. Thanks so much for hosting this link up - I enjoy it so much! (If you hadn't noticed!)

For some reason, I'm surprised to see that there's a shop window close enough for this reflection to be possible. Happy Easter, James.

Bizarrement , il me semblait qu'elle penchait plus!
As-tu aussi pris la classique photo de quelqu'un qui semble la tenir ?.. :o)
J'ai decouvert la dame sur ma photo seulement quand je l'ai agrandie sur mon ordinateur !
Joyeuses Pâques !

RedPat said...

That is wonderful! I've never seen it but I can imagine it must have been thrilling to do so.

Is it me or are you leaning slightly too? :-) I've yet to go to Pisa! Joyeuses Pâques à tous les deux !

Mama Zen said...

I hope that I get to see it in person some day!

Halcyon said...

I still haven't seen it yet, but will do it one day!

What a wonderful opportunity and I assume you have seen the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building along with the Leaning Tower of Pisa. What a life you must lead. I am happy for you and just a bit envious. I would have tilted my camera so the tower wasn't leaning in the picture ... that would have cause a bit of a stir, Ha! Another great post, James.

I like how everything is leaning a little in this reflection!

Valerie said...

Hey it's not leaning! Love your window shots James.

Valerie said...

Wonderful image James! I am ancient enough to remember having climbed the Tower's inner stairs - long before it was closed to such tourist activities; it was a weird sensation! Bless you James for your continued dedication to hosting this site which clearly brings joy to many. Happy Easter.

I've managed to get there twice so far. I only walked it once though, that's enough. :)

I always enjoy your reflections of iconic places.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Yes I can imagine how it would feel.. unbalanced :) I really like the whimsical touch of the chandeliers in the reflection.

Alexa T said...
