Everything Else Can Wait

April 1, 2014

Cleaning your sock drawer can wait.

Your FB friends can wait.

Get outside. Go watch seeds ripen. Finches flutter.  Lambs blink. Lilacs bust out like popcorn.

Pick a flower. Drink in the blue air.

Go. Now. Everything else can wait.

A Corner in Rome

March 25, 2014

Early one morning I hid in some lush old ivy near a decaying corner in Trastevere, one of my favorite places to shoot.  For 15 minutes I shot Romans and tourists coming and going. Then I had a little fun with the Posterize effect in Photoshop.

What’s your favorite place to photograph in Italy or elsewhere? Do you use Photoshop (or something similar)? What are your favorite “effects”?

My Sicilian Village: Now and Then

March 4, 2014

Here’s my beloved Piazza Duomo, with the church of San Giorgio perched atop a high staircase, her chest puffed out, proud and lovely. The piazza is our salon–it is here that we celebrate, gossip, soak in the sun, raise a glass of wine, listen to the clamor of the bells.

And now a shot from days gone by. It’s from an old postcard–shot maybe 50-60 years ago? The clock appears to have been in working order back then, but other than that not too much has changed, thank goodness.

Natura Morta

February 22, 2014

Here’s what I do with my free time: wander the village with a bag full of  fruit. When I see a good spot, I scan the area to make sure I’m alone, pose the persimmon, and click the shutter fast — before neighborhood busybodies spot the americana doing yet another weird thing. You gotta be quick.
