Here is a beautiful video of one of my favorite spots in Florence, featuring the grottesca ceilings in the East Corridor of the Uffizi.
Last year, while touring the Uffizi by wheelchair (being dutifully pushed by my butler) I noticed my perspective of the ceiling was different, wider. Erling gave me his video camera and we tried making a slow tracking shot of the corridor ceilings. That didn't work very well because every time we rolled over a seam in the marble floor the camera jostled.
We returned, several times, and Erling shot the ceiling again using a handheld gimbal. And then he edited this lovely video and added some music from his opera A Little Girl Dreams of Taking the Veil. Thank you, Maestro!
