Florence - Conclusions

Tonight I'm tired. I have blisters on my feet and a wound on my heel where I was whacked with a trolley at the airport. I also have mozzie bites all over my breasts and upper arms - lovely!

But Florence was amazing - my brain is still processing all the amazing things I saw. The artistic highlights for me have to be Michaelangelo's slaves at the Uffizi and the Brancacci Chapel. In both instances I lost myself for a while, and you can't ask more from art than that.

I feel footsore from reliving your trip through your photos - which are fantastic by the way - I have always wanted to return to Italy and thanks to you, at least I can do it vicariously on your blog! lol

Welcome back to warm beer and rainy mondays.....

You tell a fantastic story. I realy enjoyed the photos especially the ice cream domes. I laughed at Iona's face after the limocello and the quizzical look on J's face. I have only seen Donatello Mary Mags in books -beutifuly lit -here she looks like the bag ladies you try not to get near.f

Thanks for all the kind comments. I feel that I've got my photography 'mojo' back - so thanks for all the nagging.

So...where to take my camera next?
