Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Even in places like Florence, reputed for its warm summer weather, sometimes it rains! And on this day, it really did rain hard for a couple of hours!

I had to laugh at the entrepreneurial spirit of the street traders! They had been selling jewellery and Italian mementos a few minutes before this rainstorm. Suddenly, they were selling umbrellas and pac-a-macs!

This is Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, arguably one of the most beautiful and harmonious squares in Florence. It exemplifies the ideals of Renaissance architecture with works by some of the greatest artists and architects of the period. The piazza is surrounded on three sides by balanced porticoes, with the mostly southern oriented side opening on to Via dei Servi. - Wikipedia

Even though the clouds were dark and the rain was falling, there was still a great beauty to be seen in the setting.

I will add another close-up of the rain, as a workshop.

I'm glad to say the weather is fine and bright in my village, at the moment, after a heavy deluge of rain last night, Bev :-)
