Until quite recently, I hated tours. With a passion. How can that be, you ask? There is so much to learn, and the knowledge of the guides is right there at your disposal. Why not let them open up that world for you, show you what you didn’t even know to explore? Oh, let meContinue reading “Touristy Things”
More black and white, more shadow and light. And inevitably, more stairs (this place is NOT sedentary-person-friendly). Shot on iPhone 8. Related: More photos here and here.
She knows a good gig when she sees one — this furry ball of gorgeous has actually shown up more than once in my reading of other people’s blogs about journeys to Positano. An absolute camera-mugging, attention-crazed, ultra-self-confident specimen, milking her chance to steal the attention of tourist lenses far and wide. Everyone is Mr.Continue reading “Blessings from Bast – Positano, Italy”
Watching the shoreline Grow smaller and smaller Then the bottom bumps Against a boulder Under the dark water Which you choose to ignore Or hate Or anticipate Or wish away with the wave of a hand And I wonder if it has torn a hole And I wonder if I am sinking Then the wayContinue reading “Seafaring”
Another shot from our lovely day in Positano. Not only were there several different levels at which you could shoot the sea and sky (so. many. stairs.) but foreground was pretty much everywhere, which is my candy when I’m aiming to capture a unique perspective on a famous image. I believe I was standing nextContinue reading “Positano, Italy Photo Series #2”
Back to my “something a little different”, inspired by one of my favorite stories, Rashomon. (Does doing it twice officially make it a habit? Okay, okay, not quite there yet.) The idea is to occasionally solicit the thoughts and opinions of others who have tread the same path as me, but (inevitably) they bring aContinue reading “Rashomon Series: Positano, Italy”
My obsession with lines, light and shadow continued on my Women’s Walkabout trip to Positano, Italy. In the early stages of my foray into hobbyist photography, I got the brilliant advice of finding your shot by merely looking up. This place did not disappoint. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter. Stay tuned forContinue reading “Positano, Italy Photo Series #1”
I’ve done a couple of safe-cations in our current pandemic climate, and hope to do a few more over the next year or so (yes, I’m prepared to safe-cation for as long as it takes). So inevitably, I am going to be out there, wearing my mask and encountering other people wearing their masks. AndContinue reading “My Favorite Mask-Takes”
View from my tea at Cafe Duke, just down the street from my room at the Michelangelo. I ventured out for an early walk and breakfast to celebrate my first morning in New York. It wasn’t my first time in the city, not by a longshot, but this was my first (and so far only)Continue reading “New York, NY Photo Series #2”
More experiments with black and white. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter. First post in this series is here.
