Weekend Reflections 2 - Nice


The fountains in front of the Acropolis Centre in Nice look like the spaceships have landed as they send out an eerie glow at sunset....


Perhaps a touch of Dali's famous Mae West lips in the form of a sofa in white instead of red also spring to mind...

What springs to your mind?? Anyway, this is my contribution to Weekend Reflections this week - check out the rest of the shots submitted by clicking here........Enjoy!!

Hello Catherine, I read your comment on Owen's 'magic lantern' about the meme Taphophile Tragics, and thought to contact you directly. I am Julie and I started the meme. If you also are a taphophile, I would invite you to join us starting on Tuesday each week. If you have anything from Mexico left to post that would be great, although around the Nice area would also be good. I am glad the concept is of interest to you, and hope that you can see your way clear to join with us one of thes days.

My warm regards

Magical reflections from a wonderful part of the world .... Yes! Very much like Mae West's lips.

Owen said...

These fountain reflections are simply surreal... angelic almost, visions which are hard to grasp, as so strange...

Catherine said...

Owen - yes it was one of those magic moments at a place which normally looks quite mundane....

Catherine said...

Hi Julie thanks for stopping by and yes will certainly participate over at taphophiles....soon...

C'est très beau, à l'ancienne, mais le reflet est parfait !

They do indeed look like spaceships.

Peter Olson said...

The space ship is obvious; perhaps a bit too "cold" if you refer to the Mae West lips? What else? Have to think about it! Enjoy your weekend!

(I'm also a bit of a taphophile. As you know, the Menton cemetery is fabulous for photos.)
