Photo of the Day - January 5, 2012

Pigeon Lantern
The building in this photo is the Palazzo Pitti (or Pitti Palace) in Florence, Italy.  Though originally commissioned by a florentine banker, Luca Pitti, it is best known as the former residence of the Medici Family.  Today it serves as an art gallery.  The stones that you see in this photo come from the Boboli Hill, over which the Boboli Gardens majestically stretch themselves, directly behind the large palace.
