Photographer's Note

A view of Florence that is dominated by Brunelleschi's Dome.
For me a beautiful sight.
Gert, (homertz) has reminded me of our trip to Florence by recently posting some shots from 50 years ago.

"The dome was built by Brunelleschi and was the biggest dome in the world at the time of its construction.

The major innovation was to build the Dome without a supporting structure. The Dome consists of two distinct domes; one internal, more than 2 meters thick with a deeper angle than the other and consisting of large arches held together by ribs and made of bricks arranged in a 'herring-bone' pattern."
The Dome is a part of the Pantheon.

Note the people at the very top of the Dome.

Thanks for looking.
