Over the rooftops


I took this photo from the lovely terrace of a friend of mine. It was all so nice and perfect up there: flowers, dining table, deck chairs and umbrellas and a fantastic 360° view over the roofs of the historical centre. I could see at least four bell towers, including the top of the Torre de' Lamberti! I chose this one because I really like the shining chrome of this pipes, so striking with the rest of the view...

I like this very much. Those chrome pipes set off nicely against the more traditional elements!

funny juxtaposition of old and new.
there's nothing so nice as being outside in the city.

mi piace molto come hai accostato l'acciaio alle tegole, ed un bel cielo, quasi offuscato come sfondo! bella!
