As promised I'm following up on my three part series on this year's Signature Series Italy Photography Workshop. Once we had our fair share of photos in Rome, we then spent the second leg of our Italy workshop exploring Florence and the beautiful Arno. Florence is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited. The food is fantastic every where you go, and there are surprises waiting around every corner.
For me Florence is most of all about art and workmanship. In every detail and around every corner in this city you find gorgeous architecture, leather workers sewing purses and shoes or making belts, artists painting or sculpting, jewelers creating one-of-a-kind jewelry, tailors making custom clothing, and more. Being in Florence I am reminded of the value of working with one's hands to make beautiful things. I can't wait to go back!
