Hi all, I haven't been writing on this forum for ages!! Last December I relocated, I came back to Rome, my home town...since then I did not have time to make any nice pics, too much time to set up my new house and to start my new job...but in the past days I went around Italy and now I have so many pics to post, I'll try to prepare and post them step by step! They are all shot handheld, with my "ancient" Dynax 5D, with my Minolta 100 f2, 35 f2 and 17-35 f2.8-4.



I'll start with Florence, an amazing town I just visited for the first time! It is really amazing, if you have the chance you have to go there!!



I will start with some pics of Santa Maria del Fiore, the amazing church:



#1







#2







#3







#4 A Pano from the tower of Giotto, my first try...







The buildings are truly amazing, here you can find some details of what you can find in Florence:



#5







#6







And now some details of the ceilings:



#7







#8







#9







#10







#11







#12







#13







That's all for today...but I have many more pics from Florence and other fantastic places that I will post in the next days!! I really hope that I succeeded in describing part of the beauty I saw!!



Ciao!!

Your shots bring back some great memories. I was lucky enough to spend my honeymoon in Italy. I think I saw "David" in Florence.

I remember taking a number of photos with disposable cameras while I was in Italy. How stupid was I?? It was in the days just before affordable digital cameras; when digital cameras cost more than the round-trip plane ticket to get there and back.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your photos. Thanks for the memories.

Hi all, as I promised before here you can find some other pics from Florence!

I will start with some arts: there were so many statues around that I couldn't make a picture to all of them!! Here you can find some pics of the David by Michelangelo, one of the most famous statues:

#1



#2



#3



Another attraction in Florence is the Ponte Vecchio, an old bridge where there are only small jeweliers:

#4



#5



#6



#7



#8



#9



Going around Florence is still possible to see small craftmen shops...like a typography...

#10



...a leather shop...

#11



...and a small carpenter shop...

#12




I hope you liked them...C&C are very welcome!! Ciao!!!

Great set! I wish I could stay in Florence more than just one day! I didn't have a chance to explore all the cool shops you photographed!

Hi Girello - nice to see you back and two very nice series of shots from Florence. I have never been but it one place I would love to visit.

The culture and scenery is a bit more inspiring than MK then?

Nice series Girello. Thanks for sharing.
I'd liked to see some more cityscapes if you have them.
The Ponte Vecchio set I would have liked to see some more WA effect, was this possible ?

Thanks for your comments guys...the following is the widest pic I have of the bridge (and yes, it is from the other side!):



I was wondering...is it the correct section of the forum where to post or is it better the "Open views"? If so, my apologies...I'll post the next pics there....please let me know!! Ciao!!

Great set #2. The old shopps are great, and your PP on them is lovely. Gives them the old time feeling.

I love Florence!
