Sean Connery In Florence

Sean Connery lookalike in Florence, Italy

So today is Friday and even though  it’s an overcast day with lots of rain in the forecast I feel really good.  I have so much to look forward to and it’s a very exciting time for me. 


Today I feel like sharing this photograph with you.  I took it during last year’s visit to Florence, Italy. 


My wife and I were walking around Piazza della Signoria and when I saw this painter, I did a double-take and said to myself, “wow, that guy looks just like Sean Connery” from the 1996 action film ‘The Rock’.   


In retrospect I should have walked up to him and introduced myself and perhaps even take more photographs of him.  But last year I was new to travel photography and I did not know what I know now.  If you are interested in learning how to be a better travel photographer I recommend this article posted on the TBEX Con website written by Lola Akinmade Åkerström and always remember that your subject is also a fellow human being. 


Have a fantastic weekend!

  1. Nice story – although I trust it wasn’t ACTUALLY Sean Connery?
