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.

The priest with his traditional robes somewhat at odds with the modern technology in his hands.

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.

Another walk along the Water Of Leith to blow out the cobwebs, taking some shots together with our #Fujifilm cameras. It’s as if we coordinated our kit. Quite a few for you this time, but what the hell…

Following on from the recent posts we did of Edinburgh in a morning Haar, here are some that I got around the same time, but shot at night. Lots of fine lighting effects from the street lights.

A stroll along the Water Of Leith is highly recommended, even if, as in this case, the rain sets in and you get drookit in the process.

This was a really short lived phenomenon where the low mist was lit by the rising sun. It burnt off really quickly, so I was glad I managed to grab some some pictures. I bumped into Toby Long of Photo Express, so we got shots of each other taking shots, as you do.
