Some buildings are just impossible to photograph.
Nothing seems to capture their beauty, their gravitas, their ‘wow, LOOK at that’.
This is one such building I feel.
The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore. Or to you and I, the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower – the huge, dominating church of Florence, Italy.
The Duomo, as it is known, is breathtaking. Flanked in green and pink marble, with a jaw dropping Gothic style, it is huge. And as you stumble on it while walking the pavements of Florence it wills you to take a photo of it’s vastness. But you just can’t. Well, I couldn’t anyway!
