Mysterious Reflections in Italy
Tourists line up at every monument, fountain and church on the “must see” list from their tour books. There is a sea of iPhones and iPads held over people’s heads at every turn and dreaded selfie sticks blocking the views of many special sites.
There is an entire world of landmarks one misses by keeping their eyes down at their guidebook or their mobile device.
Looking up will allow you to see parts of Italy you would otherwise miss. Some of the photos from the Italian chapter of “Reflections,” a photo book planned for release in 2016, show wonderful views in reflections.
Often the view from the sidewalk will allow you to see the upper floors of a building on a narrow street. And this view offers a totally different perspective.
On my recent trips Home to Italy I found the reflections where ever I traveled became far more interesting than any selfi. And the view in the reflection was something I often could not see from the sidewalk.
