Burger Bar Italiano

Okay, so the subject of this short blog isn’t actually called “Burger Bar Italiano”, although I wish it was. In fact, it’s Italy’s very own 1950’s American Diner. Compete with waitresses on roller skates, neon lights, pinball machines and greasy burgers!

As I was in my way back to the train station in Florence I stumbled upon this absolute gem. Pretty drunk and wobbly, I managed to bag a few images of the staff and surroundings before having to leg it for my train.

Pisa

My second short blog in not so many week. I have been keen to begin a black and white series in Tuscany for some time, so it was great to get the ball rolling with a short, one day stop in Pisa.

We stayed in an apartment round the corner from the Leaning Tower of Pisa which resulted in us spending most of our time wandering around the bars and shops in the vicinity and not venturing too far into the city itself. I spent most of my time watching tourists strike somewhat obsurd poses with the tower which I thought looked quite amusing when photographed slightly out of content.

All images below were taken using Kodak 400TX.
