Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

“Arranged” is a concept with a few different connotations.  Taken one way, it can mean that something is purposefully controlled and ordered in a way that may not be totally genuine or natural.  And yet, “arranged” can also be indicative of something harmoniously organized for any number of reasons: efficiency, beauty, simplicity… without detracting from the sincerity of the thing (whatever it may be).

To me, this picture was definitely about the latter.  It was taken in Florence, Italy on an April day that was 80 degrees, sunny, and pretty much perfect.  Having hiked all over the town the day, I took the opportunity to indulge in some tiramisu and people-watching in the sunshine-y terrace of a little cafe just down the hill from the Piazzale Michelangelo.

Traveler. Coffee addict. Nerd. Fashionista. Baseball aficionado. Bethany Grimm (née Rein) is a twenty-something professional living in sunny and warm St Paul. She drinks too much coffee and reads too many books. But in her defense, she can explain the in-field fly rule and change her own oil, so at least she's a well-rounded nerd. An avid runner, Bethany also plays recreational sports with more enthusiasm than skill. You may find her telling the men in her life to put on a tie already.
