Arrivederci & grazie, Firenze!

Not a lot going on today, but I wanted to get the photos I lost when my camera broke so went back over to Oltrarno and to Clet Abraham's studio - which was closed this time unfortunately. He has re-imagined a number of the street signs on the way to his studio though, and here's a sampling of his work:
This is his studio:
And this sign is for sale inside - no doubt, it's at least 700 euros:
It's one of my favourites!
Another street artist, Blub, creates art by adding a diving mask and snorkel to a character or famous portrait, and some bubbles, then sticks the posters on the street walls. The only drawback is that this makes them easy to damage or remove, and many have been partially removed.

Exit/Enter spray paints these cute little characters on the walls - usually (but not always) near the entrance or exit of small side streets and alleys
While I was over that side of the river, I noticed this white heron fishing in the Arno, under the Ponte alla Grazie, so here are the animal shots for the day:
And here's the edgy shot - just his/her feet from a take-off (quite proud of this one!):
And the laugh of the day - these are coat hooks for children. Inappropriate, much?
Final look at the gold ball on the Duomo - say goodbye!
Hopefully back in NZ on Saturday, but Lufthansa staff are on strike, so one of my flights is cancelled. Yay!
