Florence Lines

Florence, Italy

Europe has so much history on display, and much of it can be seen in it's architecture and museums. Everyone seems to have a favorite country, but nowhere do I feel more at home than in Italy. I suspect that I feel that way because my mother's family immigrated to the US from Italy. I have been there twice and  I am always  looking to go back again to revisit the homeland. Today's photo is from the capital of the Tuscany region, Florence.

Florence has the architecture and museums that make it one of the most visited cities in Europe. This image has both facets, namely the famous Uffizi Gallery, which is one of the oldest and most famous art museums of the Western world. This composition was taken from the courtyard between the two wings of the museum. I just love the leading lines of the architecture.
