Framed Views

I don’t really know why, but I am a sucker for capturing a “framed view”.  I love taking photographs of architecture framed by architecture, especially views famed by arches and windows.  These moments always seem to catch my attention and stop me in my tracks when I encounter them.  I will always double back to shoot a good framed view.  I know it is cliché, but I don’t care.

Here is a series of some of my favorite framed views from Florence, Tuscany and Rome.
