So I drop my dearest at her office, where she is going to unleash her toothache on the unsuspecting criminal elements of the citizenship who decide to misbehave on Saurday afternoon, and after a short while I'm on the tiny train - eastbound Florence.

Florence, before. by alfrjw, on Flickr
While on the train, I make plans with the little Fiona for coffee and a chat, and opt for the 45mm that seems to love the town.

Like most, I head to Santa Maria Novella and look back

Towards the river, bordering the Alinari museum (the photography history in Florence), I enter the fashion district and it shows.

Lost, but not really, holding the map without looking at it, taking all in.

I hit the river, turn left, move on to the next street.. Meanwhile, they plan.

While approaching I start hearing the most beautiful voice from afar - this lady profusely thanking some fortunate one in a melodic Russian, almost singing.

I agree, remembering I didn't have lunch! Easily corrected in the upper Mercato Centrale, after a while I'm back on the street.

Enter Fiona, chat, coffee, books, the unsuspecting others, and a look at the Leica store.

Firenze is a beautiful and interesting place. You are very lucky to live in Toscana. A heaven for photography.

Great images! And you very tastefully post processed them. These should be printed and framed simply with a black frame and white mat and exhibited! Thanks for sharing.
