Florence in all its gritty glory and grandeur.
The Pretty Façade of the Florence Cathedral
The level of detail worked into the duomo’s façade was amazing – an elaborate 3D wrapper with a fine mix of Gothic and Renaissance design.
Stunning Architecture of the Florence Cathedral
The duomo in Florence is a timeless piece of architecture. Dressed in an eye-catching mix of red, green and white, it looks grand even to this day and age; completion of its construction must have been nothing short of a miracle back in the 1400s.
The Casual Ambience of the Piazza del Duomo
A touch of carnival is in the air with the colourful carousel spinning in a languid eternity. Fancy restaurants surround the square from all four corners, with friendly, enthusiastic waiters beckoning you in as you peruse their menus.
The Grand Baglioni Hotel
Probably just another normal hotel through the eyes of a local, but I thought it looked kind of pretty.
I Wonder what She’s Wondering About
She makes me wonder about her life, as she gazes out at the river all alone in silence.
Serious Discussion about Gelato
A rainbow assortment of flavours and colours entices from behind cold glass. To complicate matters further, there are the rows of cone and cup sizes to decide on. Hmm…
A Morning at the Uffizi
A morning well spent exploring the art pieces and admiring the architecture of the grand Uffizi, albeit being herded about like sheep amongst a sea of curious fellow-tourists.
Wandering Down the Hallways of the Uffizi
Loving the complex details of the ceiling in contrast to the plain geometry of the tiled flooring.
Pretty Little Human Sculptures
Pretty little carvings spaced out perfectly on a wall at the Uffizi.
The Sleeping Ariadne
Returned home to the Uffizi after two centuries, this beautiful sculpture has been chiselled meticulously into the organic shape of a woman.
Captured at Corona Street 55E
Dressed in a casual singlet and shorts due to the blazing summer heat, a shopkeeper of a simple produce store takes some time to rearrange his wares.
Lonely on the Outside
A quiet little street cafe, with an Italian menu scribbled simply on chalkboards.
More than just David
There’s more to see in the Accademia apart from Michelangelo’s renown David masterpiece. Filled with many colourful paintings and sculptures from the Bizantine and Gothic fourteenth century, to the art of the Renaissance era, it is worth exploring further.
A Sickly Tinge
Couldn’t find any information of this art piece online, but it just caught my eye in a sea of paintings thanks to its comparatively neon hues, and the sickly colour of the man on the cross was interesting.
Out on the Streets of Florence
An abandoned bicycle laden with a brilliant basket of fake flowers, parked casually on a street in Florence.
Another Day at the Bridge
Another picture of the bridge and brick houses in Florence, this time in bright daylight.
