Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

My title -'For the First Time' refers to my first glimpse of this iconic bridge in Florence.

I had heard so much about it and when I saw it, I was not surprised at its reputation: it is, of course, the Ponte Vecchio. Ponte Vecchio, I believe, means old bridge. It may be old but it has an amazing character, full of bustle and life. Jewellery shops abound on each side, each artistically displaying their goods, tempting tourists to buy.

My first view of it, shows its arches and colourful surrounding buildings all reflected in the River Arno.
A sight I will always remember.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
