The Oltrarno is my favorite part of Florence. It turned out, by chance (as the best things that happen in Italy usually occur), that I found myself staying in an apartment in the Oltrarno for part of the time. It also turned out by chance and a series of connected and serendipitous events that I found myself with Elly, a SACI Post-Baccalaureate student at Ceri Vintage, near Santo Spirito. Danilo Ceri, the owner, kept the shop open late so that we could have an impromptu photo shoot. Luckily, I had gotten into the habit of keeping my camera with me at all times, so with that, the 50mm lens, one memory card and some light bulbs, we had some fun.
