Artist's Description

Picture the scene; we were on a cruise round the western Mediterranean. We only had half a day in the beautiful historic city of Florence, Italy. We were on an organised tour and did not have much time (still had to visit Pisa later that day).

The streets were packed with tourists making it difficult to make headway. We were following our tour guide along Via Por Santa Maria and as we passed the end of Via Vacchereccia, I could see Michelangelo’s David outside the Town Hall (Palazzo Vecchio) in the Piazza della Signoria. Unfortunately, we were heading the wrong way, so I pointed my camera and took the shot. Pretty hit and miss really.

That was in September 2007 and I just had another look through the shots from then and found it. Of course, there is a street sign partially obscuring the statue (typcal). Some viewers of a more sensitive nature may think the sign should have been a little higher, but it is what it is.

Sadly, the statue of David is only a copy; the original is in the Academy Gallery, in a specially designed room where it can still be seen today.
