Florence

This is the second time I've been to Florence since we've been living in Italy and I still haven't gotten to see as much of it as I would like. This trip I focused on the main area, taking pictures of some sights I'd seen before and also going to the Accademia, where the statue of David is at. I was disappointed to find out you couldn't take pictures of David, but it didn't ruin my trip.

Ok..let me just preface this post by saying that I am not able to edit with Photoshop as it is being shipped to me, so I'm not 100% happy with the editing on these. That being said, here are some of my views of Florence.



The campanile right next to the Duomo. It stopped raining for a few minutes and blue sky appeared.



I love taking pictures of the different door knockers.



Bicycles on the square



Reflection of the Duomo in one of the many puddles



Locks on the Ponte Vecchio bridge



A quiet street in Florence



I actually took this picture on my last trip, but it is the best picture I have of the Duomo.



The ceiling of the Duomo. It depicts the Last Judgement.

Hope you enjoyed some of my views of Florence!

I could stare at pictures of FLorence all day. Funny story: so you may not be able to take pictures inside the Acadamia, but...um....that didn't stop me. I held my camera up, snapped a shot, and the only part of David that I got was...um...the essence of David!
