My Travel to Florence in B/W
We visited Florence and went to see the Famous Statue of David by Michaelangelo. On our way to the art gallery we had a short stopover on the hill overlooking the city of Florence. I run out of color film again so I had to use the spare B/W films that I carry along in my photo bag. This time I took a photo of the replica of the statue of David and made it look like he was standing on top of our motorcoach tour bus that we were riding around on our tour of Europe. It was parked near the plaza where the replica statue stood. Then we all boarded the bus and proceeded to the city where we can go and see the original statue of “David”.
From Florence, we also passed by a small medieval town that was surrounded by a river moat. This beautiful town have ancient buildings in a huge cluster inside the village. We did not drive into the medieval village because the bus won’t fit in the entrance so we just took photos while the driver parked the bus nearby so we can capture the beauty of this medieval Italian village.
