" The dark end of the street " - oil painting in Italy 2

"Shadows embraced the stylish young woman as she strode with purpose away from the midday heat of Florence. Was she bound for an illicit meeting or just an innocent rendezvous with an old friend for coffee?"

Everywhere that you walked in the medieval, historic centre of Florence, you turned corners to be met with dark shadows then shafts of brilliant sunlight at the other end of the street, highlighting rows of bicycles, scooters and the ever present little Fiat 500s.
