All tomorrow's parties: Ponte Vecchio

Florence at night, from the city's most famous bridge, Ponte Vecchio.  Artful tourist shots.  Ponte Vecchio is known for old shops precariously piled upon it, it's also one of the oldest stone segmental arch bridges in Europe.   It reminded me of William Gibson's futurist vision of the crumbling Golden Gate bridge in All Tomorrows Parties, populated by shack colonies now, and not by cars.   It's a great book, read it! x
