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……..
