Nov 20, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Magic

Rome, Italy, taken on December 17, 2013

There seemed to be some magic on the streets of Rome and some passersby were indeed quite amazed at what man-in-orange did here but…I couldn’t have been the only to have seen through his trick immediately!? It wasn’t really that mysterious, though he did give me the evil eye as I was taking this photo secretly without dropping a coin or two in his can. Then I sneaked away, though I supposed he wouldn’t have been able to catch me even if he wanted to 😛

Nov 09, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Florence, lit up

Florence, Italy, taken on December 19, 2013

At dusk, when the sky hadn’t gone completely dark at 5pm in December, Florence became lit up by streetlights on both sides of the Arno river. I had planned to be at the Piazzale Michelangelo (in the far distance in this photo) for a sunset from the hill with my dad, but train delays ruined the plan 😦 Still, old Firenze looked beautiful in the early evening!
