Pictures of Florence


A sequel to the post of a few days ago of Venice, these too are some older pictures taken on my trip to Italy in 2008.  I've taken another look at them and worked them up using some recently acquired software to give them an old-time look.

I probably posted variations of some of these before, but I went back to the originals (taken in 2008) and did some new crops and processing.  I think they turned out pretty good.
