Photographer's Note

I apologise in advance for this not being an original POV of the Ponte Vecchio, but…….Last night my wife and I were looking through our shots of Italy and reliving the trip to Firenze we did last year, reminiscing about the fantastic week we spent, eating, drinking wonderful Italian red wine, and taking in the sights. We’d had a fabulous day, stood in line at The Uffizi for two hours, then marvelled at the art displayed in this incredible gallery, wandered down to a brilliant restaurant by the river for a late lunch then walked up to the Piazza Michelangelo to take the view out over Firenze. It was getting quite late into the afternoon when we walked back across the Ponte a Santa Trinita to head back to our hotel. The sun was getting quite low in the west, bathing the Ponte Vecchio in late afternoon light. We stood in the middle of the Ponte a Santa Trinita for quite a while waiting, hoping, for the gentle breeze to drop and give us a wonderful reflection of the Ponte Vecchio in the river, but, not today. How I love this beautiful city. When I come back in my next life I want to be an Italian living in Firenze.
