The Past



The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

ABC Wednesday - I



ABC Wednesday - I for Italy


This is one of my favourite photos of Italy - a street scene from Pisa - I have used this as part of the header for my Blog " Pictures of Italy ". A Blog that I have now ceased to update.

A very typical Italian scene.





Florence and the famous Ponte Vecchio - crowded with shoppers and tourists even on a wet winter day.

Another favourite photo of mine.
