People in Florence

Now that the sun has come out in Scotland, it feels like the right time to look back at our trip to Italy last year and do some more blog posts.  We spent a few days in that beautiful city Florence and a post on the art and architecture will follow.  But I thought I’d start with the people – we like street photography and Florence is full of people – you can’t move without tripping over tourists doing selfies or snapping each other with tablets.  However, we tried to focus on the people who live and work in Florence. for instance, this doorman outside a posh hotel.

Locals cycling round the many, many tourists

Or stopping to answer that vital text.

Or pedestrians taking that important call.

Or just sitting reading a book.

People live their lives despite the bustle of the visitors all around them.

And even manage to find quiet routes away from the hurly burly.

Having said all that, a post on people in Florence can’t ignore the tourists – and it’s hard to photography some of the main sights without tourists in shot.  The replica of Michelangelo’s David outside the  Palazzo Vecchio is impossible to photograph without visitors passing by so I embraced them as part of the shot.

And you cannot avoid the crowds outside the Uffiizi if you want to visit its treasures.

We loved the Loggia dei Lanzi with its outdoor gallery of statues  as did this couple.

Florence is a beautiful city and we were so fortunate to have the chance to visit – and we look forward to sharing more photos in future posts.

#4Reflect #Photo #Exhibition ends 11 Feb – last chance to see, selection of closing offers.

Once again, a big thanks again to our fine hosts The Roamin’ Nose.  It’s #healthkick time at the ‘Nose, so why not get along and try one of their healthy options such as a warm salad with Beetroot, roast baby parsnips, asparagus, artichokes, lentils & goats cheese? Cold? – there’s home made hot soup and it’s tasty. I know, because I test it out on your behalf on a regular basis.

Not fancying something healthy? There’s Barney’s beer, a great selection of moderately priced wines and cocktails. All god for washing down some home made pasta – my favourite when not tempted by a Roamin’ Burger, which is a proper one and gob-smackingly good too.

After eating and drinking, why not buy that nice print you have fancied, but not yet nabbed, before it disappears. It might even be one of those on offer?

As a reminder, Four Reflect is four local photographers presenting a range of images for sale. Open within the Roamin’ Nose Café and Bistro from the 13th November 2014, this exhibition will run until the 11th of February. More details on  the exhibition web page. Buy stuff off the  walls!

And here’s the exhibition flyer:

Four Reflect Exhibition: Now Refreshed & Renewed With New Images

We’ve now sold about half of the available Framed Frints, so have added some fresh stuff for your perusal.

As before,  big thanks again to The Roamin’ Nose, to Todd at B-Scenic for lending a professional air to proceedings and to all those who have bought something. More importantly – it’s cocktail season at the ‘Nose, so why not get along and try one:

Hazlenut Espresso Martini – best drunk at about 11:30am apparently, so an ideal pick-me-up after that Christmas Party. Mmm, French Toast and a Hazlenut Espresso Martini please I can hear you cry!

Fruits Of The Forest – It’s got fruit in it so it must be good for you at this time of year. Berries, Vodka, Ginger Ale.

Cointreau Coffee – Err, well, Cointreau and Coffee. You’ll love it.

All tested personally by the RN’s own Lucy and approved for drinking before buying that nice print you fancy giving Auntie Agnes (other friends and relatives can be nominated) for Christmas…

An Update – Now we’re up and running and have sold some prints, I thought I’d stick up some shots of the venue and how it looks when you let random photographers loose on your walls. Big thanks again to the RN and to Todd at B-Scenic for lending a professional air to proceedings.
