I have been travelling back in time, going through my (many) photo files, finally finding time to process a few that were take last October while we were in Florence. So many wonderful memories of our time in the city. Wandering the streets, getting lost in the laneways! I use to love walking along the river pathways, so much to see.

Buskers and mimes of all descriptions providing enterainment, vendors selling just about everything a tourist might want to take home, tourist reading guide books, taking photos, and getting lost. One of my favourites to watch was the various artists who set up their easel and begin to work. Watching them transform a plain white piece of paper or canvas to the scene in front of us is both magical and inspiring.

It is Tuesday, and Leanne Cole has her weekly Monochrome Madness blog, if you like black and white photography head on over to her page and check out some of the image submitted by the other photographers.

  1. What an inspiring photo, for those who haven’t traveled think they know a place through pictures and videos these days. This photo shows the scale from a painting to the location , if that doesn’t move you to travel I dont know that will!

  2. Wonderful! The photo makes it appear that the photo was taken at the time period of the buildings built until you get a slight look of the fellow with a back pack to the right.
