Images from our trip to Italy ~ these are from Florence. We began one evening at dusk at the Piazza Michelangelo above the city, walking and shooting as it got darker. We walked into the night ending up at the area around The Duomo, the large dome on the right in this first image.
Walking down the path toward the Arno River
Heading towards Ponte Vecchio. This bridge totally enchanted me with the little shops. In days before, the butchers and fish mongers had their shops here but now each little space is for an artist.
And one view, even closer. I loved the light coming from the shuttered window.
Please click on images to view them larger. It was a wonderful night walk in Florence.
Sure, we had to lug our cameras, tripods, and equipment ~ but it was no problem, really, when you had views like this. I am enjoying processing my images from the trip.
Spring is here in all it's glory. Flowers are poking up and spreading out, but so are the weeds.
These calendula/pot marigolds come up every year, sometimes in unexpected places. But their warm colors are most welcome. The same for the camomile, it self sows readily.
I'm quite fond of putting things in place and keeping everything neat and tidy, so I enjoyed tucking these into the box frames.
William and Jenny have announced their engagement. I could not be happier for them. Jenny will be headed to law school in August and it seems that William may be leaving for Galveston for that teaching job he has been hoping for. Plans should firm up over the next few weeks.
Until then, a mini celebration | BBQ with Jenny's family and ours this weekend.
