ponte vecchio

Ponte-Vecchio-Florence-Italy
please click on photo to see bridge details up close


G is for golden, just like the light shining on this medieval bridge in florence. we had a lot of ground to cover in the short time we were there. luckily everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. ponte vecchio actually means old bridge, the oldest of its type in europe. read more about it here.

Have taken countless photos of this bridge (and thanks to the German general who refused to obey Hitler's orders to destroy it), but yours is unique for its golden hues. Well done.

It is one of the many things on my "future agenda" - now I'll have to move it further up!

And G is for Glorious, like your photo, Lily. I love the higgledy-piggledy look of some of the structures on the bridge. I bought some beautiful little coloured-leather coin purses as souvenirs in a shop somewhere there.

My grandmother had a painting of this bridge in her living room when I was a child. Only years later when I visited Italy did I realize where it was. Lovely lighting here.
