La Tour Jean-Sans-Peur (Weekend Reflections # 386)

Paris, France                    (John the Fearless Tower)

 The tower, the sky and the other buildings were reflected in a shop window across the street (Rue Étienne Marcel). This one almost fooled me. I had to double check to make sure it was a reflection. :-)

By my standards all of the buildings in this reflection are old, but the tower in the middle is very old. It was built in the early 1400s.  I've walked passed it several times over the years but I haven't been inside.

Happy Reflecting!

An astonishing clear reflection of these lovely Parisienne buildings and ancient clock tower!

Such clarity - I was hunting for the reflection!
Must have been a very clean window :)

I did think you might be "cheating," but found some faint but superimposed images. Very nice perspective. Funny that in the US our idea of "old" buildings might be those from the 1600's - 1800's. I doubt that anything survived the 8 years after Columbus in the 1400s and not much from the 1500s either!

That is amazing! How lovely to see such history reflecting back at you. Such a clear shot also without any distortion. You have such a good eye for the perfect reflection. I wonder what started you out with such a keen eye for good reflection. Most photography tries to avoid the reflection! I love it.

cool to be so unsure. That means a very good reflection :)

Unbelieveable that this is a reflection! Amazing picture!

Beautiful old buildings, James and perfect reflections! It pains me hearing what Paris in the last years is going through:( Although through the centuries they had a history or riots, overturns, etc. there.

Obviously a reflection (hey, it's yours!), but if I didn't know I wouldn't know—you know? :~}

what a clear reflection...and that is a marvellous tower!

oui, cette tour est très vieille et c'est bien de la conserver, et qu'elle soit encore en harmonie avec son entourage.

Have a nice weekend

belle vue sur la tour Jean-sans-peur qui m'a fait relire à l'instant l'histoire de ce personnage historique ;)
bon weekend

Had to look twice to see it is a reflection, excellent photo

Great reflection but I would have preferred something that shows us that it is a reflection like a little piece of window frame or little piece of the facade.

It definitely fooled me! What a fantastic blue sky against the tower. :)
