100 Images of Italy 2014

Last summer, in 2014, we spent a wonderful month in Abruzzo and Tuscany. We were over for a family wedding and to catch up with everyone. I have set myself a task to produce 100 images out of the photos I took on this trip. This is a formidable undertaking because it means 3 striking images per day. Ansel Adams said “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.” Either I am very very good, or seriously deluded.

Tuscany

Arezzo in the Evening

My sister-in-law and her husband have an olive grove in the hills above Arezzo. We went up to see the orchard one evening and this view was waiting for us.

Sacred Places

When I travel I am not big on museums. It is the people now that interest me. I love the markets. I like to sit in coffee bars and watch the people about me and listen to the murmur of conversation. And I love the Sacred Places: the churches, basilicas and cemeteries. There is history and art enough for a lifetime in these places of remembrance and devotion.
