A lovely view, Ginnie! I believe I have a shot from that very spot! San Gimignano was one of my favorites stops during my Italy vacation! I still just love saying the name!
Ginnie Hart: Great minds think alike, Elizabeth, because it may have been my favorite place, too! Thanks.

An excellent PoV with so many intersecting planes of the facade!! Beautiful textures and earth tones as well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. It's one of those places that amazes the eye.
Beau point de vue avec ces jolies pierres.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine.

I love this point of view, Ginnie. All the different bricks. I remember we did a lot of looking up that morning.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Astrid, and yes, we did!!!
Beautiful framing Ginne. I like the beautiful red and golden bricks on the walls and the lighter stones on the bell tower
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. I'll never forget the place!

I like how they have used all brick, brick and stone, and keeping the best stone for the Tower, Ginnie. The infill of the house on the left is fascinating.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Yes, and Yes, Lisl. It was one of my favorite places of the trip, as you already know. And once again, I love seeing you back. I actually was just getting ready to ask if you might come back soon! smile

Wonderful surfaces and textures. Oh - I see some faces on top of the tower too..
Ginnie Hart: If we had had time, I would have loved going up there, Chris!

a great composition - I heard of the famous tall towers in San Gimignano I hope to see one day.
Ginnie Hart: You would love this UNESCO town, Philine. It's like stepping back into time!
J'aime ce melange architectural ..magnifique prise de vue Merci Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine. It's a great place to visit.
Beautiful brick and stone
Ginnie Hart: Gotta love it, Bill!
what an array of different brick work
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Martin!
so many different kinds of brick and stone... must be an old structure! great shot of it, sister!
Ginnie Hart: Medieval times, Elaine, and never destroyed by any of the wars. Amazing that all 14 towers still stand today! Thanks.
Très bel angle de prise de vue Ginnie, j'aime beaucoup cette photo.
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Pascale.

I love the brick and stonework here, especially on the building on the left. The tower looks to be the most uniform. .
Ginnie Hart: It actually reminded me of what I've seen in England, Alan, especially the stone work.

Excellent cadrage
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP. Good to see you again.
Can you imagine a jigsaw puzzle of this! What a lot of angles and lines. Fabulous!
Ginnie Hart: Now that's an idea, Mary!
A great image of a lovely old building than can only be Italian, it must be very old. (Our daughter came for Fathers Day at the weekend and said she and her husband are off to Italy at the weekend in a villa near Lake Como, she wanted to know all about Verona and Lake Garda, nothing like making Mum and Dad feel envious is there!)
Ginnie Hart: YAY for the kids doing the good stuff, Brian, right??!! HA! Well, you've had lots of your own trips, so you obviously planted the bug. smile
Love how you've composed this, Ginnie. Excellent textures as well. I'm curious about the fleur de lys window shutters on the building to the left.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. I wonder, too, especially since I think of France when I see the fleur de lys!

The ultra modern brickwork to the bottom left is intriguing. This seems to be quite a place - old and new.
Ginnie Hart: More Medieval you cannot get, Louis. One of my favorite places on our Italy tour!
St. Gim was a regular visit for us when taking holiday in Italy.
Ginnie Hart: I can totally understand why, Tom!!!
great point of view Ginnie... just look at the different stones used to build this over the centuries....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I know, Peter. If those stones and bricks could talk!!!!

prachtig met dit camerastandpunt Ginnie

prettige dag
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy, and the same to you.
Buongiorno!
Just got back from Milan last night. It was so hot there, the sun was really fierce. So uncomfortable to walk in long distance.
I guess winter is the best time to visit Italy. smile
Ginnie Hart: This is exactly why we try to do all our travels in early to mid-Spring, LC. I don't do well in the heat!

Old stones merge with the more recent flowers smile
Ginnie Hart: Mother Nature has her way, Cherry, doesn't she!
