A Glimpse Of The Real Florence, Italy. By Kari Varner

I’m really excited to feature photos from this amazing photographer Kari Varner. Kari is also a former SACI student and she’s incredibly talented (Unlike me. My photos look like a child took them after over-dosing on baby Benadryl). I love her style of photography, it’s super intimate and I feel like I’m standing right there with her. But not so much in a stalker sort of way. This series really captures the feel of Florence. I know you guys are going to love them as much as I do. Tell me which one is your favorite in the comments below (I especially like the dead pigeon since I’ve stepped over many of them on the streets of Florence and I have a weird love/hate relationship with bird corpses because of it. But not like a serial killer.).

  1. Wow! Amazing photos. Love “flight and footsteps”, because How did she capture such a gorgeous moment in motion? Also love “santo spirito”, for the angles and contrast. Love, love, lovely. Thanks for sharing!

  2. They are all awesome, but I especially like Reflective Puddles and A Lonely Bike, A Quiet Street. There is also something very cool about Santa Spirito. Has me longing for a trip back to Florence.

  3. Hard to choose. She has a fantastic eye. Reflective Puddles reminds me of the soul of Florence, reflecting the city and doubling as a mirror, which Florence does to me. Waiting at the Bus Stop strikes at the center of what I wish Florence was still like, only feminist ;). And, the Cats of Boboli made me feel like I was taking an afternoon stroll on that very path. Beautiful. All of them.

  4. These are all first name FAB last name BOOSH. Faboosh photos!! I especially like the puddle and the shadow. Very well done shots.
