Let's see what's in the gallery...

Sigh. I'll be spending most of today writing to hit a deadline, so no time to write a lengthy blog entry, let alone edit it down to something meaningful and pithy. Instead, here's a few pictures of Florence from my iPhoto files...

Inside the Bargello at Florence. This monolithic building was once the headquarters for fighting crime in the Tuscan city during the Renaissance, evolved into a prison and is now a museum. You could almost believ in progress.

A weird grotto-chapel in the Boboli Gardens at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence. With lots of tourists milliong around in front of it, blocking my view. Gits.

The fabled Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence at night, shot in unsteady-cam. Home to the city's gold merchants for centuries, it used to house butchers who tipped excess blood and offal over the side of the bridge into the Arno. Charming.
