Lovely shot, great eye for detail.

YSL 3/6

I reckon you took the picture from the top of the dome - I walked up there when visiting Florence with a buddy and afterwards had to promise him we wouldn't climb any more stairs the rest of the trip...

Best regards,


Diane on March 28, 2013

Haha, that's a great story! No, I had no desire to climb the dome or the campanile. This was done with zoom and without a tripod, with a new and average-quality camera. So, it's a miracle I got such a good shot! ;D

Thanks so much for the YSL!

Thank you, Mirjana. Oh, no, he died so young - what a tragedy! Of course, the whole country would be in mourning for quite awhile.
