I took this photograph around 3 o’clock in the morning right before crossing the Ponte Vecchio. There were no tourists in site and the shops, lining both sides of the bridge, were closed. A lone guard patrolled the area. On the left, just under the 'Peruzzi' sign, a biker zoomed by. And of course, high above the city (in the centre of the image) shines the proud cupola of the Florence Cathedral, the Duomo. I could return to Florence in an instant.
The photo was exhibited in 2008 as part of ‘A+’ – SPAO’s first exhibit showcasing the work of part time students, past and present.
