I have been here before, just 6 months ago. It is only now that i realized how small the city center is….everything still smell so fresh and familiar.
Look Front…..Tourists again !!
There are people everywhere in the center of Florence. You would have thought you were in some parts of American or China, going by the various languages that I heard. Tour groups are everywhere !! There isn’t a need to pay for a translating guide. Just pretend and tag along with the english speaking tour groups. I guarantee you that no one will notice.
No wonder its a haven for Street Artists and Performers……
Me tried to do more portraits-style street photography but its an off day for me. Everyone had their sunglasses plastered onto their faces…..Grrrr
See what i mean ?
Hot Hot Hot ! 32 Degrees C !
I love Street Artists ! But they are rather shy, I had my camera on my face for a few minutes but they did not even bothered…..I give up….
Cupid. Everyone wants to take pictures with him……
But take your time too to walk along the little lanes. No need for maps, you will always end up somewhere familiar.
It is also on these small streets that i found this old man. If i remember correctly, I saw him at the Duomo 6 months ago (Yes, i have super mega powerful memory..hehe) . Squeezed out of the main areas perhaps ? I suppose he had to settle for these lonely streets. I would have spent more time photographing him if he allows…….
And you definitely will spot them. Chinese tourist rushing off back to their tour buses after buying their Louis Vuitton’s, Chanel’s and Prada’s !!
That smile on their faces…..how to explain……its like striking lottery ? except that you are paying…….
