Ok. There's something we all need to accept here. The timing of my posts is not going to make sense of lot of the time. That being said, I finally scanned all of the polaroids/photo booth photos that have been sitting around my desk for the last several months... to a year. Oops. So I'll be sharing them here, naturally.
The first time I went to Florence in the winter of 2012 for a writing conference, my roommate and I stumbled upon an old photo booth in the street. I went crazy and insisted on going back several times. Since I'm shit at directions she had to show me every time. When I found out I was going back I immediately added that to the list of things I had to do while I was there, which was pretty small. I thought it would be nice to show the transformation. The first set of four strips were taken in January, 2012, and the next set were this past April. Over two years later in the exact same photo booth. It's pretty damn neat. I love it when things come full circle. This was somewhere I really thought I'd never get to go again.
My traveling partners would disagree with me, and it may have been because I'd been there before and felt more comfortable in the city, but I think Florence was my favorite of the five cities we went to. I got to go out by myself for a little while here. My friends really wanted to rent bikes (not my thing), so I took that opportunity to venture off alone, it was so relaxing. I feel at home there. I could see myself living in Florence if I ever live abroad. These are so special to me.
