Wandering Eye

This time out finds me submitting the current edition of this series while sitting very near the center of the city where the Renaissance began, Florence, Italy.  I am in a hotel room overlooking the Piazza Santa Maria Novella, which is but a short walk from the center of town and the Cathedral Di Santa Maria Del Fiore on the Piazza Del Duomo.  So, with that being said, how could I, in all good conscience, let the Wandering Eye settle on anything but Florence, Italy?  I couldn't, so...

What an excellent group of images! Isn't Florence just the most beautiful place? And so rife with history! If you get a moment, I highly recommend a trip to "Hemingway's," for some cool decor in a coffee/gelato bar.

Thank You, Steve! And by the way I am so jealous of your trip. I would love to be there in Italy, in stead of shoveling snow.

Love the photos in this post. Thanks for including mine, too! I miss Italy pretty much on a daily basis, so this was a nice bit of nostalgia for me!

Italy is pretty much proof that life isn't fair! I wish I was there! Thanks for including my photo in this lovely set.
