Weekend Reflections: les amoureux

Lovers on their way back from the Palace are reflected in a bus stop with Versailles' coat of arms (more info about it? Click on the 'heraldry' label below). To see reflections from all over the world, visit James at Newtown Area Photo.

Almost perfectly centered.

Gunn said...

Well seen and well done!:)
A photo with atmosphere.

Jacob said...

Another of your most excellent reflection shots! I think I see a Segway in the background or is that merely a reflection, too?

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Excellent reflection shot, Ciel.

Woody said...

Splendid shades of blue and gold and a grand reflection!

Diane AZ said...

Your timing is amazing, cool shot!

Bob Crowe said...

At first glance they looked like they might be in a test tube. Since the people are clearly lovers, there might be a little extra symbolism.

Randy said...

Lovely reflection. I like the way you got them in the shield.

So sweet----lovers--I like the idea. MB

@ Jacob: if a Sedway is one of those pumpy things on two wheels then yes. And yes, reflected.

LD said...

I couldn't tell at first if "amoureaux" meant armor or amorous.What a great shot!

Diane said...

Lovely and romantic. xx

VP said...

A Segway at Versailles! You gathered a lot of things in this reflection!

Malyss said...

Bon, moi le segway, je m'en fiche, surtout depuis que je sais que le mec qui l'a inventé est tombé avec d'une falaise il y a un mois.Faut être bête pour utiliser ça a coté d'une falaise.. Par contre, je voyais un joli couple, le preux chevalier et sa gente damoiselle rentrant en leur château après une échappée romantique..Comme quoi, le regard de chacun etc.;

Cezar and Léia said...

The romantic couple is inside the "BLASON", it's wonderful!Lovely post Ciel, very well done!

Very Well Done.

Jacob said...

Hi Ciel...re the Ritz. "Historic" in Florida means it might be two or three years old!

Nah, I'm kidding. I don't know when this place was built...I'd guess back in the 30s.

It was sold at auction about a year ago and now serves primarily as a bed-and-breakfast.

Not that great a place.

Jacob said...

Hi again! Re Lake Reunion...yes, all the little lakes in Stone Creek are "artificial." And they are all stocked with fish. You can fish in Lake Reunion but it's catch-and-release. Some nice big bass, though.

And lots of golf balls!

Halcyon said...

I love this one! A perfect reflection. :D

T. Becque said...

This is beautiful and a bit quirky with the Segways. Romantic with the building, tree, couple, coat of arms, then the oddness with the Segways. I like the combination!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, great, romantic reflections! Terrific capture as always, Ciel! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

BaysideLife said...

Great reflection and great shot. You captured the perfect moment.

'Tsuki said...

Aux armes, aux armes ! Et l'écu fleurdelysé de nous renvoyer à un glorieux passé, auquel ces amoureux pressés de vivre leur présent n'ont sûrement pas songé en passant devant... Belle photo en vérité.

Hilda said...

Perfect capture! I adore the particular blue shade of the coat of arms.

Louis la Vache said...

Fantastic capture, Ciel - «Louis» loves the inclusion of the coat-of-arms.

Francisca said...

Cool, Ciel!

Dina said...

What a perfect shot! And even a segway in the back, no?

Olivier said...

Inverness Daily Photo said...

A bus stop with a coat of arms. Super stuff.

Shirley said...

A great addition to Weekend Reflections! Great capture!

EG Wow said...

This is very cool! Love the fleur-de-lis on the label. Reminds me of Quebec. :)
