PhotoHunt: Upside Down


This week's theme is "Upside Down." Fun theme!

Pretty much everyone who goes to Venice with a camera ends up taking reflection-in-a-canal photos; it's just irresistible. Plus, you never know what you'll get since it all depends on the time of day, the position of the sun, etc.

I took these on a cold and cloudy winter day on Torcello, a beautiful island in the Venetian lagoon. I've flipped them upside down. The red brick in the upper right corner is the sidewalk I was standing on when I took the photos.

In this next one, you can see the bell tower of Santa Maria Assunta, Torcello's thousand-year-old cathedral, down in the bottom right corner. It's upside down because I flipped the photo! It's also covered with scaffolding for restoration work.


You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

Those are both beautiful reflection shots. Happy weekend.


These are beautiful pics for the theme :)

Now I'm confused which is the original object... it looked as if you purposely turned it upside down.. haha :P Nice one Annie. :)

Very good, Annie! Reflections are indeed upside down. It'll be fun to see what this week's participants will come up with.


I love reflections, yours are wonderful!! Great choices for the theme.

I love the reflections. Beautiful photos!

great reflections. there could be a meme solely for reflections don't you think?

wonderful take.

Great photos!

I leave for Venice in a week and will be going to Torcello for the third time. Lucky me!

This is my ninth Italy trip, so my ninth trip to Venice. :)

I don't know when I have seen more stunning reflections. Flipping the photos upside down was a nice touch.


I love the way you capture the beauty of Venice. I wish upon a *star I can go there someday...

Please drop by to visit my entry for this week. Thank you!

Happy Weekend! :)

Nice reflections. The second one actually gives me a little vertigo since you can tell you are upside down. Have a great weekend.

This is a beautiful image and a clever way to interpret the theme. I love this Torcello teaser and hope to see a blog entry soon. ;)

Have a fun weekend!

Lovely photos!

Here's mine... kinda wordy today. I didn't want to go on a trapeze bar and I have no pics of mountains. :S

Have a great weekend!

It took a while for the photo to appear and before the part below the rocks appeared, I was starting to get vertigo!

The from the rocks up looks like a beautiful silk-screen...

Very beautiful photos!!

Beautiful photos!!

Great shot - apparently we, who are lacking an upside down reflection in the canal image, have to go back just to correct that error.

It is like an optical illusion! Very cool! Love both of them :)
