Photographer's Note

A view of the Ponte Vecchio and the River Arno from an upper floor of the Uffizi Gallery.

Please open in a new tab for the large version.

"The Ponte Vecchio, a medieval stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge. Noted for the shops built along it, building such shops on such bridges was once a common practice.
Butchers, tanners and farmers initially occupied the shops; the present tenants are jewellers, art dealers and souvenir sellers."

Thanks for looking.
