Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

REFLECTIONS = the experience, to see something in a second variation – like a thinker, who changes the point of view too …

  1. Wow, that was fast 🙂 Beautiful shot!


    • hi Tina,
      let my add some non-photographic reflections about the city PADOVA, where I took this photo:

      Pathetic places need horse (or gondola) races; this one gives a chance for modern roller-bladers too, I think. The magic scenography of the large elliptical place PRATO DELLA VALLE in Padua (Padova, Italy) is a variation of the big amphitheater of this town which already has been well known 4 hundred years before Christ. Though deleted completely in the year 600 by the Logobardes this city is still living. The foundation of the university (1222), where Galilei worked, the big city walls (16th century) or this powerful urban construction PRATO DELLA VALLE (= the photo above, fragment of the old circle for horse races, built in the 18th century) is a visual sign. Nowadays the architect Libeskind has built a September Eleven (2001) memorial – or Kengo Kuma’s architectural work is presented in the old town-hall PALAZZO DELLA RAGIONE (12th century).
      now a (philosophical) REFLECTION: Something to criticize? Yes. The pope put away the statue of GARIBALDI in Padova’s center piazza. In the middle of the place of Garibaldi now we can find a Madonna-statue… (forgive me, I would prefer to meet for an interview Garibaldi more than to meet the current pope Benedetto XVI.)


      • I spent some time in Padova two years ago and thought it was one of the most beautiful cities I had seen in Italy. Your photo really captures that!

        but a meeting with the Madonna might be best of all 😉 several dimensions to your reflections all bathed in a liquid amber light

  27. Such a beautiful photo .. and thanks for adding the non-photographic reflections about that city – it’s highly interesting for me as I’ve not been there yet.
    I’ve just started exploring flickr and it seems to be a great place to store and share photos. I keep mine with fotki.com since 2007 but I think I’ll be using flickr as well.
