The aged patina of history is deeply embedded in the Ponte Vecchio! There are so many layers of shapes, textures and nuanced colors within these little earthy shops. What I truly loved this day, however, is that the bridge was primarily backlit against the glowing, opposite shore. Buildings at my side cast a bluish shadow through the foreground, as the sun skipped across the bridge’s jutting forms from left to right. What a beautiful melody to behold!
