Photo of the Week--6/23/08

Our first major trip after relocating to London took place in January 1999. My parents brought my grandmother over for a visit—thus proving you're never too old to try new things, for at age 80, this was her first trip to Europe. We then headed over to Italy and started exploring the lovely city of Florence (or Firenze, as the locals call it). This is the city of Michelangelo's David, and it was filled with architectural marvels. The Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, many beautiful Piazzas, and of course the marvel that is the Duomo. This cathedral, covered in green and pink marble, was lovely from every angle. But I particularly liked this shot, looking up from the ground, for the quality of the light and the clarity of the sky.
