Reflections of My World in Orvieto, Italy-February 2009


I loved the reflection(s) in these two captures. The sky was beautiful and filled with huge and billowy clouds when I visited Orvieto, Italy in February. I thought you might enjoy. Aren't the painted poppy platters gorgeous? I was so tempted but, refrained.

Please stop by and visit the MY WORLD MEME hosted by the fab team of Klaus | Sandy | Ivar | Wren | Fishing Guy| Louise. We had over 100 visitors last week.

How gorgeous. I wasnt even paying attention to the reflection. I was wonderfully distracted by the colorful painted pot and plates.

What a lovely place, and your photos are wonderful! The reflected sky in the window is beautiful--and suddenly I have an urge to paint my window boxes LOL

Oh this is so lovely. Love the beautiful designs on the planters.

Karen said...

Re the US OUT banner in my post...as you and a number of posters pointed out, there is a check mark next to the words, so it should be read as 'Check Us Out'.

OK, that makes sense ... to an American. However, I'm originally from New Zealand and there, that mark is a tick mark ...so my Kiwi brain was getting totally confused!! :-)

Tammie Lee said...

These are wonderfully colorful images that capture a different time and place for me.

Daryl said...

The first literally took my breathe way!
