Our weekend in Florence was enjoyable, and confirmed once again that the back alley wanderings are the most fruitful for my photography. This lovely scene, another addition to my market/wheels series, was found taking a side street as we wandered.
This is our second visit to Florence, and I found I had gotten all of the Duomo-and-Ponte-Vecchio pictures out of my system the first trip. We visited a couple of lesser known museums (Bargello, for some fantastic sculpture, and the Museum of the History of Science, which houses some of Galilleo’s original instruments) and then wandered what we could find of back streets. Oh, and shopped for Florentine paper! There may be another giveaway, coming soon to a blog near you.
But today… as promised on Friday, I have an announcement…
Today I am launching a newsletter for my blog! I’m so excited to have another way to chat with you, through an email newsletter that I will be sending once or twice a month. It will include articles on art, creativity, photography and interesting places, notifications and special offers on my classes, and will provide you a handy reference to what is happening on my blog in case you miss a post or two. Won’t that be nice?
As a thank you for signing up, I’ve created this little book on basic composition that I call a “Camera Companion” that you can fold up and put in your camera bag. Whenever you are feeling stuck you can pull this out and get a few ideas to help you, in the moment. The download and instructions to make the Camera Companion will come via email as soon as you sign up.
There was a lot of prep work to get all of this ready to launch today, and I have to thank my son for his help in filming a video. He was so funny, he had to go find these headphones, just so he would “look” the part of the director. He took his job seriously though, directing me quite well.
Aren’t you curious now, to see the video we made together? You’ll have to come sign up for the newsletter to see it! Just enter your information in the box on the left sidebar, as shown below. You’ll need to confirm your subscription via a link that will arrive in your email, and then you’ll get your first message from me in your inbox. I can’t wait to share all of this with you!
