"Around the World in Analogue" is your bite-size guide to the most amazing travel destinations across the globe, as documented by the members of the Lomography community. Today, lomographer @lobeni13 reminisces about his travel to the enchanting city of Florence.

Name: Lesly
LomoHome: @lobeni13
Social Media: Twitter, Instagram, VSCO
Camera: Pentax Spotmatic 35mm
Film: Fujifilm Superia Reala 100
Location: Florence, Italy

Florence was enchanting. The city radiated the pure essence of Rinascimento, of the enlightenment that Italy underwent; a history that continues to inspire. Art students flooded the streets and with the local artists and musicians. There was a serene exuberance that filled the air and it was welcoming to one and all, natives and travelers alike. The mighty Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the quiet Arno flowing by, the graceful and imposing David…It there were was a city that could sum up perfection, Florence it was.

It’s been more than a year since the trip but I only developed my films recently. I was quite apprehensive because I had used expired film and my Venice and Paris film proved to be quite a disaster (much like the experience encountered in both cities). I take a lot of photographs with my phone and my (digital) Fujifilm XE1 but I always shoot what I like to call the "special" frames with my Pentax. Looking at these images in retrospect, I feel an unbearable attachment and a longing. So I leave you, Firenze, not with my wishes and hopes. I bid you arrivederci; until we meet again.

    I spent six weeks in Florence in Fall 2014 and brought along my recently acquired Diana F+ and an Ocean OX-2 "New Color Optics". I hadn't shot film since 2004 but was inspired by my friend Eric Lindbloom's work "Angels At The Arno". He was a pioneer in "lofi" in the 1960's and shot with an original Diana 151. So, I shot my lomos in Florence without much thought and took a lot of digital photos but was so impressed with my film work after I came home I started collecting film cameras and joined Lomography. And so here I am some 500+ photos later. I'm returning to Florence this Fall (2017) and I'm sure I'll have some great results.
