This picture was taken at the hostel where Juliet and I stayed in Florence. There was a small but beautiful garden, and these vines were growing freely over the covered area under which there were seats and tables arranged for outdoor eating and lounging. The weather was beautiful (for the entire time I was in Italy) and the sunlight filtering through these leaves brought them to these vivid shades of green, which stood out against the wall of the building in the background.
I think of Italy this way sometimes, a series of beautiful, crisply etched moments--like miniature landscapes, illuminated by the bright spring sun.
