Be Sure to Look Down...Weekend Reflections


My last morning in Florence, February 2009 afforded me this lovely composition right at my feet as I headed back to my hotel in the Piazza della Repubblica. Other than framing, and putting my blog logo on the photograph, this is SOOC.

This is my second entry into WEEKEND REFLECTIONS hosted by James. Please join in this wonderful meme.

The effect of rain on the urban environment is wonderful, Erin and you have captured this. Not only do I like the relection in the puddle, but I also adore the large pavers.

Brava!

Oh, that clean took my breath away, Erin. It is an AMAZING shot. I also love the oiliness in the puddles beside the reflection and the cracked pavers ahead. Please tell me: what is POC? Jo (North Africa)
