Excellent photo. The reflections are a nice bonus.

You're good, my friend! Very good! Fantastic shot and fantastic reflections. But what is a "baptistery" in this context?

Julie said...

Love the simplicity of the balcony, but what on earth possessed them to put the fake grass around!!

The reflection is just terrific. Lovely distortions and the clarity is spot on.

Good post, VP. Again.

Col reflections! They almost look like cartoons drawn on the glass. I like this photo a lot!

Wonderful shot - and the reflections are perfect.

Awesome!

@ Jacob - Sorry, I forgot the link. Catholics were baptized here, in this case almost all Florentines until the end of the 19th Century.

VP said...

@ Julie - You are right, I have posted a detail of it.

Love these. The balcony shot is gorgeous, the reflections are so clear. And that beautiful blue sky reflected in the window is a bonus. Wonderful! Kathy

Wow, the door really reflects at a very high level, are they mirrored? I also like the iron work of the railing. Beautiful!
