Statue of David
I captured the Statue of David back in May of 2017 but hesitated to edit it because there are already millions of images of the iconic statue. In the age of smart phones, almost everyone who visited the Accademia Gallery in Florence probably took a photo of David. Originally, the statue was located at the piazza but in 1873, it was relocated to the gallery to protect it from damage. I'm told that during World War II, the Italians feared that the statue would be stolen so a replica was created while the real statue was hidden in secret.
Following the other tourists, I captured David with the iPhone 7 plus. Hope your day is going well.
