At the Uffizi (Weekend Reflections # 300)

Florence, Italy

From this angle it looks like I caught her taking a reflection selfie.  In reality she just happened to be passing by as I snapped a shot of the painting and its reflection.

Have a great weekend!

Wow! This is more than a reflection - it's an optical illusion! The way you caught it makes it seem like the passer by is gonna walk right into a wall! Cool shot - and LOVE the deep red walls of the museum - painting really pops!

Good one, James! Looks like she thought you were taking a picture of her. Well, I guess you were. :~}

So who should be unhappy here ... her for having her picture taken or you for her walking into your picture ... hmmm. Great picture and what is the reflective wall made of ... just curious :)

That's called perfect timing as far as I'm concerned James, although I'm not sure your young lady agrees :) Super arty reflection!

Our Hermione is in Philadelphia, then in New-York.
If you go there for new reflections, ask for my daugther; she's on board ! Her name is Auriane.
