Florence, a Panorama

January 20th, 2011

This is a panorama of the older part of Florence, Italy, which I find to be the most beautiful city in the world. The panorama was taken last October from the top of the Piazzale Michelangelo.

It is put together from 26 separate photos and the size of this low-resolution version is 5019×500 pixels (the high-res version weighs in at 375 megabytes with a size of 24073×4094 pixels).

For you Assassin’s Creed fans out there, has the old city changed much since the 15th Century?

More coming soon!

The Ladies & the Gelato

November 23rd, 2010

I’ve been a little busy of late, and not had much time to prepare any posts. Am working towards fixing that, so please bear with me!

I made this shot in Florence, Italy, just before I headed up the hill to the Piazzale Michelangelo. These three German ladies were sitting outside a tiny gelateria, enjoying the sun and the first-class Italian gelato. I love the texture of the wall behind them.

On another note, check out the following:

More coming soon!
