The obligatory postcards: These are the ones that you just can’t capture with a silly little phone camera. (Yes, all the rest of the pictures from the trip were taken with my trusty Nokia E71, which is all I take on trips anymore. No separate music player, camera, calendar, etc. I have a translation app, a flashlight app, and even an ebook reader on this thing! Love it!)
Still, the little cheesy camera just can’t get those big, grand shots. Plus I forgot to take it on the day we were in Firenze (Florence)! I’m not too proud to scan a few postcards! These are not my shots and I do not claim to own the copyright. Here’s that magic shot of the Ponte Vecchio reaching across the Arno.
Here’s what the front of the Duomo looks like:
And here’s the shot showing the tower and the dome:
And another shot showing the some of the city:
And a final lovely view of the Tuscan hillsides:
