Italy – in small details (1)

These photographs were taken in September 2016, around the cities of Rome, Florence and Lucca. I guess since we aren’t currently allowed to travel anywhere, I thought it might be nice to reminisce about happier times…

One of the pictures below (top left) shows some small detail on a statue in Florence. Tortoises are a common motif of artwork commissioned by the Medici family, but you don’t notice them until you spot four or five in a single morning!

There’s something about the small, sometimes missed, details – in backstreets, doorways, or looking down on you from the corners old old buildings – that I find intriguing. Individually, they are a curiosity. Collectively, they form interesting insights into the cities they have inhabited for years – or in some cases, centuries.

So be sure to keep your eye out for the small details, next time you find yourself somewhere new!
