Pictures Florentine

I'm annoyed with Picasa, as it seems to be stripping the colors of my uploaded photos.  So here you get a post comprised entirely of photos.

(I know there is a slight weirdness with the centering here, but I have no idea what the hell to do about it.  Blogger tells me the photos are all centered, even though they're clearly not in line with one another.  It's not really that noticeable, so let's all just deal with it, shall we?)

Nice pictures. Nicely centered, too. Now, about your cap....

I know, Orel. I'm sorry. I told Christine that morning that I was going to wear the Dodgers cap. I had it sitting there, ready to go. When we got on the vaporetto, Christine said, "I thought you were wearing your Dodgers hat." I had inadvertently picked up the one closer to me. I'm sorry.

There's just something ill-fitting about my Dodgers hat that bothers me, especially when I know I'll be in situations where I will be taking pictures. I need a new hat. But that will likely have to wait until I'm stateside again.

Yeah, that's Santa Maria del Fiore, for sure.

The mystery plaza is Piazza della Signoria.

Erin said...

Thanks, Mr. C. I was referring to Maria del Fiore as just "the duomo" all day. We were without a map, so I wasn't identifying landmarks that way, which means I was never entirely sure exactly where I was at any given time.

I have pictures of those same building from about 9 years ago!!! :)
