Photographer's Note

I visited Florence for a day and waited for most of the four hour wait for entrance into the Uffizi Gallery. When I wasn't waiting (and my friends were holding our places in the queue) I used the excuse that I was going to buy us pastries to go take some pictures and get out of the line.

This is the Ponte Vecchio which crosses the Arno river. Originally made of wood, it was destroyed by flooding in 1333 and rebuilt in stone. It is now the oldest all stone arch bridge in italy.

In world war II when the germans were retreating from italy, they destroyed every bridge in the city. However, due to what is believed to be orders from hitler, they did not destroy Ponte Vecchio.

Shot in raw, sharpened, 50 % opacity color burn history brush on the sky, overlay history brush on Ponte Vecchio and The water.
