Writing with Light

An Italian Vignette

This past Friday Why Go Italy travel site published a guest post / photo tour I did for them on the Jewish Ghetto in Venice. You can see the photo tour here. I was very excited to partner with Why Go Italy on this because I used their site extensively in planning my trip to Italy this past summer. Everything from sample itineraries, off-the-beaten track recommendations and general advice on buying tickets to museums online. I found the site indispensable to planning my trip.

I thought it only appropriate to post an Italy shot today. This was taken in Florence. I was walking back to my hotel from the Pitti Palace and turned onto a small side street when I came upon this vignette. As I mentioned in a previous post I just love bicycles leaning against interesting walls or buildings, especially in Europe. You can see that post here.

  9. Another of your images that has this wonderful warmth to the light and the processing. It’s amazing what you can find being inquisitive with your eyes open. Well seen. One minor detail, but it adds quite a lot – the shadow top left, like a pointing finger saying ‘look here’ Well worth the look!

  10. The photo tour shots are wonderful. I especially liked the last one “leaving the ghetto”. The B&W walls with the color through the doorway was very powerful.

    This shot reminds me of small town like in many parts of Europe. You have captured and processed this very well. The warm light and very slight glow are perfect.
