Woman on the Street, Florence, 1992

Continuing in a mid-winter escapist mode, this is another photo from the 1992 trip to Italy (thanks to my beloved sister and her family).  I took one roll of black and white film on that trip, and this shot uses that medium better than most – the neon elephant juxtaposed with the walking woman is what I was going for at the time but there is so much more to it now that its been digitized and the details are clearer.

Florence, Italy, February 1992

I went through the photos from this trip with fresh eyes this morning – the stark winter light and sharp shadows of the architecture seem both vintage and timely somehow.  It was easier then to take photographs of strangers without seeming intrusive; whether it is me or the times that have changed I don’t know.
