Florence – part 7 – Some Fantastic Photos

I promised you that I would post some  more photos, ones that are not taken by me (you might all be tired of photos from my trip to Florence by this time but I really want to post these, so I hope you won’t mind 🙂 ).

All of these photos are taken by Phil Thomason, and if you want to check out all the photos he took of the event you can see them on his website Thomason Photography.

There are so many amazing photos, I would like to post them all! However I am not going to do that, so I just chose a few of my favourite ones.

Enjoy!

Here you see the “court” assembled. I think most of (all?) of these people were re-enactors, and had some of the most fantastic outfits ever!

Here are some of the ladies (btw, these first photos were all taken before the rest of the group arrived) with the “Duchess” in the middle.

And so finally the Sunday’s ball.

As I look at all these photos, I miss it all something terribly! Hope you enjoyed seeing them, and thank you Phil for letting me post these!

All right, now I think I have finished posting about Florence for this time. It’s been fun and I’ve really enjoyed it, and I just hope I haven’t bored you too much telling you about it! 😉

    Thank you for sharing these. I don’t think I will ever get tired of looking at pictures from this event, so please don’t hesitate to add as many as you like. I, too, think some of these pictures look amazingly like historical paintings. Makes me wish I were an accomplished painter.

    Mr. Thomason – a true artist! He depicts the reenactors as they see themselves in dreams, and even more beautiful!
    What colors! What magical mise en scene!
    It was Mr. Thomason, and not Monsieur David, had to take a court painter Emperor Napoleon!
