Florence in Italy is one of the most beautiful Cities I’ve had the pleasure of visiting and what follows is a brief photo journal of the City, and surrounding areas. On this trip I carried with me my robust, yet somewhat aged, Canon EOS 20D digital camera supported by the impressive Canon 15mm Fisheye lens.
The Canon 15mm Fisheye lens affords a different perspective on the places I’ve visited. It’s proper home for sure would be on a full frame digital camera, nevertheless, even on one which adopts an APS-C sized sensor such as the 20D, stunning images are still possible!
When wandering the streets of Florence, it is often impossible to avoid catching a glimpse of the towering Duomo.
Right next to the Duomo, is the Campinale – Giotto’s famous bell tower. For a small fee, it’s possible to climb the tower which affords stunning views of the City.
A trip to Florence isn’t complete without a walk across the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge, one of only handful of bridges which incorporates shops into it’s construction. If you manage to pick the right time, a stunning view can be had.
