“Threes” is a prompt to use three pictures to tell a story on the weekly photo challenge this week.
Piazza Santa Croce in Florence is the scene of my three picture response, a busy square in he heart of the City, with a little cubicle in one corner where a puppet show complete with background music plays out everytime a crowd gathers in front of it. Both young and old are attracted once it gets going, with the younger ones becoming completely absorbed, almost drawn into the scene. So my three images are of the square with the little kiosk in one corner, an two others in front of and behind the scene………….. the journey continues………..
Ponte Vecchio (“Old bridge”) the medieval stone spandrel bridge segmented arch bridge in Florence, is one of the more famous treasures of this City. With a long tradition of shopkeepers trading along it ranging from butchers at one stage to present day jewellers, art dealers and souvenir shops. Today, Tourists and locals are able to part with some of their hard earned cash and acquire some glittering treasures of their own at these lavishly decorated shops, that are revealed only once the protective wooden shutters are removed at the start of the business day. Treasure is this weeks prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge, and images of the Ponte Vecchio and some stores along it are my response to the prompt…………the journey continues……..
Milan’s Piazza Duomo was a hive of activity during the festive season, with locals and tourists shopping, taking in the sights, meeting friends, visiting the markets, or just enjoying the space. The object of many childrens attention however was the colourful helium filled character balloons held aloft by the sellers, or even held down by weights lying on the ground. The grand facades of the Duomo, Galeria and other historic buildings around the square formed a wonderful backdrop to these brightly coloured objects floating in the foreground. Object is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, images of these balloons are my response to the prompt……………………the journey continues………….

During the 2013 Festive Season Piazza Maggiore in Bologna had one of its historic facades as the backdrop for a what appeared to be an interactive lighting installation. As visitors to the installation walked over a projected image on the floor, their movements appeared to create motion within the projected image. Juxtaposition is the prompt for the weekly photo challenge, so images of the modern light installation projecting onto the historical façade are my response to the prompt……………..
