Stan photographs a minor cleb.....

The red hat belongs to NBC weather man Al Roker, and yes, even he has to carry exhausted children on his back after a long day of being a tourist in Florence.

nude model in class today!

For 20 Euros an hour (cash), we had a model in class, I thought between the Mapplethorpes and the Micheangelo's, it was a good way to spend the morning.

Night photography

A cool night tonight, and nearly a full moon. A great night for night patrol. This is my third night of working the streets and adding to the Florence at Night portfolio. It will be interesting to see how different the D3 low noise images hold up to the work done two years ago with the D2x. Most of the work tonight was shot at iso 400 and 800.

Last photos from June

Totals for the month, 8 rolls of 135-36 black and white and 60 gigs of RAW files, nearly 2 gigs a day on average and I have little or no idea what I've been photographing. Tomorrow we head to Venice to the Biennale and lots of art to look at.

New Work from Florence

A photograph for Keith.

The concrete beach on the Arno.

Santa Maria Novella.

at the Bardini Garden

My new favorite public garden, we visited in less than ideal lighting conditions and it was wonderful, makes the Bobli garden look like a Walmart parking lot. I ended up shooting two rolls of black and white 35 mm and some images with the Lumix. I'll be bringing my students here Monday if the weather holds.
