We had seen her from above when we flew à la Pisa airport on our trip to Florence and hadn't really paid much attention to the details of the curves and columns in photos. But in person, there was no denying it. It was on this trip to Tuscany to watch a fourteen year old's orchestra tour that we decided to stay the night in town and spend some quality marveling time. Baptistery in Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestBaptistery in Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestCathedral in Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestCathedral in Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestFallen angel in Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFest  Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestThe funniest part was watching the posers (heh) pull out their best poses. Some had elaborate, group schemes, some were just couples taking turns holding it up, some tried for awkwardly long periods of time trying to get juuuust the right selfie. It was the perfectly spaced out ones who would climb and balance on the cement posts that cracked us up the most..Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestCathedral in Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFest Streets of Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestPisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestStreets of Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestStreets of Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestStreets of Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestBridge in Pisa, Italy | MontgomeryFestItaly was its usual braggy self. We ate it up, including the Neapolitan pizza and caprese salad. So, tell me. Are we the only ones that were so surprised by how much her posture overshadowed her pretty?
