The Eternal Flame(s)

Here is a shot of The Eternal Flame that you can read about here and here. In this photo I took three days ago, you see the tip of the tower reflected in a puddle created by recently melted snow. The days since there have been very spring-like...no surprise; it's officially spring today! Hurrah! Where's the color??

This post is part of Newtown Daily Photo's Reflection Weekend.

I'm sorry to see the disrepair but I do appreciate the effect and the couple walking together complete it.

This is wonderful! How did you do that? What an eye!

Nicely done, Bibi! I like your inclusion of the people for a sense of scale. Happy Spring -:)

Happy Spring, Bibi. If it stays warm there like it is here, you'll see green and sprouts in no time.
Like the reflection in this photo, clear, but a little grimy.

The color is in the puddle too!
It's coming Bibi, it's coming: aren't you patient enough? I know it's easy for me to say? :)

Wow Bibi, amazing skill as always... and the way the picture loaded meant I wasn't even prepared for the wonderful reflection in the puddle :)

Oh, PERFECT!!! You've gotta get this in a Beograd tourist brochoure.
As for me...I remember the symbol on Dinars. I also associate it with RTV Beograd...but I probably have it mixed up with the Pobednik. - I can hear the end of programming musik - tum, tum, tum-tum-tum, tum, taaaaam, tum tum...
I tried searching for it...but came across this instead: "Ду ју спик српски?" Pretty funny.

The fragmented image in reflection looks fascinating! It almost looks as if it has been sculpted there!
