Florence, Italy Street Photography with the X100
Our travel itinerary was a bit flexible. We thought of scheduling a day trip to Florence (it’s an hour and a half by express train from Rome) and we were glad we did. Florence has history, art, gelato and tons of vintage bikes!
I’m currently restoring a couple of vintage bikes as a hobby and seeing all those vintage bikes in Firenze, as well as the stylish men and women riding them, made me wish I lived there.
Cute girl riding a step-through:
I came upon this abandoned roadster frame at an alley and I wanted to take it home.
Hands-down, the best handlebar accessory a guy could ask for:
We had the best gelato at this shop called Grom. Looks like the lady agrees with me. Their egg cream gelato is to die for! (It tastes like leche flan.)
It’s my turn to be ‘that’ tourist taking a photo during a couple pictorial. LOL

I don’t think the real statue approves :p
Uh-oh, somebody’s stealing the ‘No Entry’ sign!
They say cars in Italy are small, but this is ridiculous:

Hi Mimi & Karl! I’ve been following your blog for a while and I’ve really enjoyed seeing your wedding photos. These recent posts of your travel to France is a refreshing change. I love how you’re able to capture the everyday going-ons of the people there, as well as the beauty of the surroundings. 🙂

So vibrant! These make me look forward to our trip in October — and take a crash course in photography in the process. 🙂 Hope all is well, guys!
