Finally Winter’s Here

After all the rain and mild weather we finally slipped into Winter last night with a light snow fall.

Took the camera down to the local nature reserve to see how the birds were coping. The feeders were busy all the time I was there and the birds looked great in the snow.

Italian Street Sign Art

Florence in Italy is the birthplace of the Renaissance, is home to masterpieces of art and architecture and in my opinion some of the best street sign art I’ve ever seen.

I wasn’t that impressed with the so called masterpieces in the Uffizi gallery. Lots of pictures of fat ugly babies painted by people who had obviously never seen a baby!

However on the streets of Florence people have been having a lot of fun with the street signs and we spent hours trying to spot new ones. These are just brilliant.
