sketching florence

just outside the wall of firenze lies the piazza michelangelo. it's quite a hike to get up here by foot..but once you do, its just this vast open space that has a spectacular view of this historical city. up top by the steps sat a student who was sketching the duomo..possibly for some architecture or perhaps for art. whatever his intentions are, there is no doubting that this city, rich in art, history, and culture, can truly inspire anybody.

    Super shot. I wish we had more ART culture here in the States. I know we have quite a bit in pockets in our communities, but for me it is overshadowed by advertising art.

    Michael Besant that may be true, but i have to say that Italy is following that captialistic trend as well. just look at what's going on in venice (huge ads everywhere)
