Strolling on the streets of Florence and taking pictures, I came across this man playing an accordion. He didn’t look very happy, I wonder if it was the hot Italian month of July or was it the humongous number of tourists he has to bear with everyday. I loved Florence, I doubt there is anyone who didn’t. But I sympathize with the people belonging to that city, it is crowded like a concert is going on its streets. The city has beauty in its every nook and corner, a photographers paradise if I may say. But like this man who performs everyday on the roads, seeing millions of people where hardly a few would stop by to pay a penny or more, I am certain he would be annoyed at all times.

I take pictures using a Nikon D60, using Nikkor 18-55mm VR lens (sometimes with a CPL mounted as well) and Tamron AF 70-300mm with Macro 1:2, although I am very new with the Tamron lens, I am quite liking its versatility.
My pictures are not photoshopped, although at times, I use Microsoft’s picture manager tool to enhance some of them.
