il ponte vechhio, a mezzogiorno

An image to tide me over until my film from Italy is developed...

I took these photos on my last trip to Florence, back in January '06. I shot this while I walked over the Ponte Vechhio from the Duomo side, south, on the way to find Beatrice Galli's yarn shop. Her beautiful shop* is just around the corner to the right. Check out her yarns and chat a bit (ma, ho bisogno parlare italiano). She is really friendly and has many stories to tell, she has been situated there for 30+ years!
*The ribbons and tweeds are out of this world. It is now my favorite yarn store EVER.
