If you’ve been following along, we intrepid travelers faced numerous obstacles in our path along the way to our Amalfi Coast home-away-from-home, but we didn’t let any of them deter us in our quest. After a long bus ride and steep climb up their driveway, we arrived just before sunset, unpacked our things in ourContinue reading “The Day We Didn’t Get Lost – Finale”
A few of my gimmicks in one: experiments in symmetrical asymmetry, a shot of a shot, and black and white texture porn. Shot on Panasonic DC-ZS70, ƒ/3.3, 1/60, 4.3mm, ISO500, black and white filter.
I’m not a car girl, but something about this artwork whispers Detroit, ever so softly in my ear. We are the motor city, after all. Shot on Panasonic DC-ZS70, f/3.3, 1/60, 4.30 mm, ISO 400.
In case you forgot where the Cut is. Shot on Panasonic DC-ZS70, ƒ/4, 1/60, 4.3mm, ISO80
Experiments in street photography at the Dequindre Cut. I wanted to thank this guy for helping me out, but a) pandemic, and b) he was running too darned fast. Shot on Panasonic DC-ZS70, ƒ/4.3, 1/80, 10.9mm, ISO200
What wise, punctual, careful travelers were we. We were punctual – oh, so punctual. We abandoned our (gorgeous) hike mid-afternoon, resisting the urge to soak in every last moment of time wandering and taking photos. This would certainly give us plenty of time to check into our room before dusk and get to know theContinue reading “The Day We Didn’t Get Lost (Part Three)”
According to wikipedia, these are called “concrete bridge abutments and overpasses”. I call them “scenic design”. Shot on Panasonic DC-ZS70, ƒ/3.5, 1/80, 5.4mm, ISO200. Black and white filter.
Interrupting my Amalfi Coast nostalgia for a little taste of how ’bout what’s happening now. Happy to report I did the needful and sought some much-needed therapy this weekend — aka, a short drive down the road a piece to downtown Detroit, on a slightly hazy 80 degree day, with my favorite traveling companion. MoreContinue reading “Views from the Cut – Take One”
New month, same ole nostalgia. Stay tuned for photos and memoires of my trip to the Amalfi Coast in Italy, starting with Sorrento, journeying on to Marciano, another stop in Sorrento, a redux of my favorite moments in Positano (because you can never have too much Positano), and a roller coaster of a day onContinue reading “Next Stop: Tales from the Amalfi Coast”
We visited San Pietro in Vincoli to see Michelangelo’s Moses, but it’s near impossible to miss the supposed miraculously-infused chains that bound St. Peter on two separate occasions. It’s a bizarre story, but Catholicism is kind of well-known for that. The chains themselves warrant my Stamp of Weird. Then there’s the fact that these twoContinue reading “Weird Sites in Rome, Take Twelve”
