I went to Florence and...

I saw the Ponte Vecchio at sunset...

and I appreciated culture...

and I went to the Covered Market...

and I saw a policeman on a stegway
(this one is for you, bb)

and I enjoyed the not-so-cultural...

and I missed MasterM...

and I ate ice cream at midnight with MissM...

and I accidentally deleted 246 photos.

Don't laugh.

  2. I don't think anyone would find that funny. I feel devastated on your behalf. Ice cream at midnight sounds wonderful though.....

  3. The one of Miss M is lovely.

    And now you have the perfect excuse to go back: to re-take your lost photos!

  4. Oh, I am so sorry about the photos - but you still have the experience and the memories, and I am just rather sad that you didn't take me with you in your suitcase. We nearly went to Florence on our honeymoon, then went on a tour of Turkey instead where I fainted at the gates of Ephesus and had the worst holiday of my life, ever!

  5. MrsM suffered from a fit of Stendhal Syndrome I fear - or perhaps she was just fiddling with her camera whilst we waited half an hour round the back of the Baptistery for MissM to materialise ...

  6. Laugh!! I bet you could sob. Still ice cream at midnight makes up for it a little bit?

    Some would say that having one beautiful picture of one beautiful daughter may be enough - the others are just an add on.

  9. A great loss, your photographs are so exquisite, I can only imagine. It appears you have mastered the art of minimalism. The seven images here are treasures, especially the delightful MissM.

  11. Oh lord, my worst nightmare.

    Did you have a room with a view?

  12. Thats awful, but at least you now have an excuse to go again...did you go to top up her cash flow?? :-)

  13. Oh no! You will have to go back asap to take them all again.
    P.S. I love the slightly anxious look on the face of the policeman. He looks as though he would rather be on foot.

  17. Not laughing at all. It sounds as though you had a wonderful time despite the photos being lost... and of course you have to go back now!

  18. If you time it right with the next ash cloud, you could get yourself stranded in Florence with Miss M and the gelato. Just saying ...
