Toscana Part 1: Firenze

When I initially arrived in Florence, I wasn’t a fan of the city AT ALL. Mainly because my first day wandering the city left me feel assaulted by both locals and tourists alike – I was pushed, shoved, stepped on – like, WTF people!? But then on day 2, things started to look up and by the time I left, I was totally down with Firenze and its amazing Duomo. I LOVE this building – it’s one of the most stunning pieces of architecture I’ve ever seen and I started (and ended) every day standing right in front of it. How else was I going to get the perfect shot?

Sometimes, you manage to get a perfect shot simply be looking up. Great light, beautiful architecture, and lovely floaty clouds to complete your composition. What more can you ask for? This one reminds me of an HDR image but it’s not – I shot it with an iPhone and applied no filter.  Now,  you really should be careful when  you’re walking around staring up at the sky – those over-sized Montreal pot holes are just waiting to swallow you up. I should know – I tested it out myself. Ouch!

And on an unrelated note, it appears that no amount of yoga can make up for the shit-streak that I’ve been on the last 2 weeks, so I found this to be bloody well fitting of my mood lately – at least the one between 9-5…!
