A Word A Week Photography Challenge: Water

I live very close to the ocean and love going to the beach and being around the water. But nothing compares to being surrounded by water everywhere, which is what one experiences in Venice, Italy’s beautiful “City of Water!”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

For this week’s photo challenge, Letters, I bring you letters that mean numbers, and words that are just letters if you don’t understand them. In the end, it’s all about letters…


Italy (I) Traveling Through Tuscany

Earlier this month we spent two wonderful weeks in Italy, where we visited Venice, Florence, Greve in Chianti, Montefioralle, Siena, San Gimignano, and Montalcino. We drove through the Tuscan countryside and Val d’Orcia all the way to Rome, where we ended the trip. It was a fantastic trip. Italy is a photographer’s paradise and I took thousands of photos. Starting my series on Italy, here’s a slide show of the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
