At The Louvre (Weekend Reflections # 181)

Paris, France (A reflection in one of the smaller pyramids.)


I'm back from a long and wonderful trip! I went to London, Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Paris and Versailles where I had the pleasure of meeting a blogger friend called Cieldequimper. I'll do a post on my other blog about that at a later date.
I took lots of pictures and probably too many of them are of reflections but hey that's what I do.

Thank you all very much for the nice comments. I read everyone one of them and they really mean a lot to me.

I hope you don't mind a little bragging. While I was gone one of my reflections was published in Dallas Modern Luxury Magazine! In fact my photo is the two page centerfold! :-) Click HERE to see the online version.

I'll be posting more photos from the trip here and at my Something Sighted blog for a long time.

Have a great 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!

I love that strong line in this image, maestro. Wow.
Congrats on the Dallas image. I HOPE you received money for that. It is worthy of being rewarded. I love how the silhouette echoes the bend in the statue's knee, yet contrast with the statue's posture. Brilliant.

Voilà un reflet selon un angle peu commun ! Bien, l'originalité !!!

Je suis bien contente de savoir que d'une part tu es de retour, d'autre part ton voyage t'a enchanté, et enfin, c'est chouette que tu aies pu profité de ta visite à Versailles pour rencontrer cieldeQuimper !!! Tu as dû nous ramener de magnifiques reflets, encore... J'ai hâte de découvrir !
