Weekly Photo Challenge – Serenity

This week’s photo challenge is Serenity.

Ponte Vecchio

This was taken in Florence from the Ponte Vecchio, if you’ve ever been there it can be very chaotic.  It’s a pedestrian bridge lined with shops; and as a big tourist attraction, it gets crowded.  I have this picture hanging in the hallway and whenever I pass by, I’m brought back to taking this photo.  In that moment I wasn’t engulfed in crowds.  I was struck by the beauty of Florence and the surrounding country.  That’s what I remember, that calm.
