Shaded with trees and leaves like a piggy bank filled with memories. You’ll see why a person would want to live there forever. Dawn, morning, mid-day, night: all the same, […]

Shutter Love Sunday – Salzburg, Austria

This is one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken. If you told me the pic was from Salzburg, I would’ve guessed a palace, or something with ‘The Sound of Music’. Instead, it shows a woman bonding with a homeless man’s dog. Should I look for deeper meaning? Why not. For a moment, these two people […]

There was a ‘woman power’ exhibit recently at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, which featured works by the late Austrian artist Maria Lassnig.

Moving Pictures – Cinque Terre, Italy

 Monterosso, Vernazza, Italy   Jun 23, 2017    By

Translating to ‘Five Lands’, the Cinque Terre offers breathtaking coastal views and a mildly challenging hiking trail that connects five quaint, Italian towns. The first part of the Monterosso–Vernazza hike is the most frustrating, as the uphill trudging will have your glutes screaming. That’s where a saxophonist decided to place himself, allowing the hikers a […]
