Wolfdogs

A few shots of Wolfdogs taken at Cassiobury Farm in Hertfordshire.  I wont insult your intelligence and explain this particular hybrid as the name says it all.  Although intelligent, loyal and very active, within the UK they are classified under the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976, so unless a third generation hybrid, a licence will be necessary to keep one as a pet.

Views of Florence

Florence is a stunning place to visit, much like all of Italy which is my favourite country to visit.

Palazzo Medici-Riccardi – Florence

The Palazzo Medici-Riccardi  (he Renaissance Palace) was constructed in 1444 and the home of the Medici family until 50 years later when it was confiscated by the then Republican government.  In the following centuries the Palace changed hands several times and in 1814 the Riccardi family were forced to sell it to the state as they were unable to maintain the Palace due to their lavish lifestyle.   The baroque gallery with its stunning frescos is particularly impressive.

Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore – Florence

The first thing that strikes you when you approach the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Duomo Cathedral) is its shear enormity, so it comes as no surprise that it’s the third largest in the world.  Being Florence’s most visited tourist attraction it dominates central Florence and when approaching from the surrounding streets its stunning marble cladding is simply impossible to miss.

Make Art Not War

The Palazzo Medici-Riccardi  is one of many stunning palaces to enjoy in Florence and was once the workplace of revered artists such as Donatello, Michelangelo and Botticelli.  There are numerous examples of their stunning  masterpieces throughout the palace, however, at the opposite end of the spectrum there was an example of the ‘modern’ in the way of an exhibition ‘Make Art Not War’  by Obey aka Shepard Fairey.   Fairey is a renowned American street artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, Calafornia.  The exhibition is dedicated to the four themes of woman, environment, peace and culture; it features both large and small scale works which envelop his humanitarian, social and environmentalist ideals.
