La Tour Jean-Sans-Peur (Weekend Reflections # 386)

Paris, France                    (John the Fearless Tower)

 The tower, the sky and the other buildings were reflected in a shop window across the street (Rue Étienne Marcel). This one almost fooled me. I had to double check to make sure it was a reflection. :-)

By my standards all of the buildings in this reflection are old, but the tower in the middle is very old. It was built in the early 1400s.  I've walked passed it several times over the years but I haven't been inside.

Happy Reflecting!

Coups de Coeur (Weekend Reflections # 385)

Lyon, France

So what is it? 
Well, it's a reflection in a window of a closed shop that had one of those pull down chain link gates behind the glass. The reflection is an illuminated building with a big red beating heart in front of it. The bottom of the heart is obscured by silhouettes of the people watching the show. People were able to touch a console that allowed the heart to match their heart's rhythm with light flashes as love songs played over loud speakers.   
This was one of the installations at the Fête des Lumières. Click HERE to see a 30 second video of the installation.

Happy Reflecting and Happy Valentine's Day!

Arsenale di Venezia (Weekend Reflections # 384)

Venice, Italy

This is the entrance to the Venetian Arsenal, a former shipyard and armory complex. As you can see it was a very foggy night and the water was agitated, but I managed to capture a few distorted reflections.

This place looks very impressive and it's full of history. Click HERE if you would like to read more about it.

Happy Reflecting!
