When I walked into Piazza della Signoria in Florence on the #GrandTourista I was overcome by the beauty of the endless amount of emotion circling around me in these statues. What must it be like for Florentines to walk by these breathtaking pieces everyday? I was very surprised whenever I brought up the beauty of the art, the locals were just as proud as I was in awe. Even though they have lived among these works all their lives, they still see the power and passion.. and how can you not?
PS- remember Statuesque from the MET?…

it’s amazing! I was just there in November…wanting to go back already!
Such majestic art. And so perfectly captured in your photos.
I went to Firenze two times this year and I still make postings on my blog about these trips ( http://fernsatbalcony.blogspot.gr/ ) . I would gladly go back again and again. I took loads of photos with my pocket digital camera that I treasure, yet I can’t help but admiring your eye for detail as well as your camera!…Powerful city, powerful photos, capturing its essense to the core. Thank you so much for sharing! I really hope you make more postings on my fav city!
Fabulous… wonderful details… and a beautiful reminder of Florence… xv
oh wow, you can just feel the power radiating from the images here.
I’m studying Art History. And I have to learn the whole Piazza della Signoria. Really enjoyed these pictures. You captured the beauty of it perfectly.
It may be beautiful but the violence depicted turns me off…
