Weekly Photo Challenge: Pattern

While climbing Giotto’s Bell Tower (Campanile di Giotto) in Florence, Italy, I could appreciate the patterns covering the Duomo as I peeked through the windows of the winding stone stairwell.


Climbing the 414 steps of the Tower provides such an incredible overview of Florence’s many patterns — from the red-tiled rooftops to the colorful marble exterior of the Duomo. I could not share just one photo with so many rich patterns to choose from!

  1. Wonderful photos of a favorite destination. Been lucky enough to have visited there a few times and enjoy it more each time. Your opening photo is quite beautiful, Kat, and perfect for the challenge.


  2. I haven’t been to Florence since the mid-70’s, so thanks for the beautiful trip back there. I love the way you framed that first shot. I like to try to do the same thing whenever possible. Lovely!



  3. Oh–Firenze–be still my patterned heart. These are lovely, Kat. My daughter and I were there about 2007. This brings back memories. By the way, our son and daughter-in-law are going to Europe for their honeymoon next week. They will be in Italy, but not Florence…


  4. Gorgeous, gorgeous shots Kat, especially the bookends! I loved Florence too, but I went a long time ago. Time to return 🙂


    • I admit my first thought whenever anyone mentions Florence is the gypsy who was aggressively begging with hand outstretched toward me as my gelato rolled off its cone and onto my arm and purse (as I successfully retrieved it — never waste good gelato) — and as I assertively said “no” she called me a witch-with-a-B (in English!). 🙂 The boys still laugh as they recall that scene.
