Images of Florence - 7: Facade of Palazzo Strozzi

 

The 'town house' of the family that built Collegalli - it occupies virtually a city block. Presumably the metal objects between the windows were intended to hold torches - an early form of floodlighting :-)

I like the embossed feel of the brick/block work here, Tom.

Ray is right about the embossed feel to this fa├žade, Tom. It's palpable.

Just imagine if those torches held even electric lighting: at night is would be amazing!
Great patterns here

Super shot Tom! I didn't know that about the torches.
Wow, I would love to see those torch holders actually hold torches and being lit!! That must be spectacular!! I like the B&W a lot, what a very interesting building!!!
Absolutely magnificent! (:o)
very cool
lines and textures
That is a fine stonework wall Tom.
Nice shot Tom. I like the light and shadows.

An interesting effect, Tom.; looks almost toy-like. I wondered about the fittings between the windows, too.
beautiful building again, well shot
A fine looking building. If it were torch lit then what a picture that would be
