Aquila nera--love how things sound in Italian.
Great reflection of her.

Lovely photos, as always. I wonder about the black eagle. There must be a symbol on the building somewhere.

VP, Hiding in the harbor is good if it's not raining :)

VP said...

@ tapirgal - There are a couple of places where you can. I am going to post a couple of pictures taken just while it was raining.

Like Dina, I really like how it's name sounds in Italian too. A grand building and a wonderful reflection in the dark waters of the canal.

Beautiful reflection of of the building. Beautiful architecture of the Black Eagle too, it sure has an interesting history for its name.

Great looking picture. the building goes so well with the wonderful sky. The reflections are truly beautiful.

The boats sitting between building and reflection introduce a slightly disconcerting atmosphere to the top photo.

Your reflections are always so nice, so clear, and there's always a glorious sky above. I envy you for the nice weather and the clear waters :)
