Florence – 1st Things First

My friends invariably ask me 2 questions… Where are you going this month? and What do you do first? The answer to the first question changes every month… The answer to the second, however, is always the same…

Just wander.. roam..explore with no destination in mind…

Up and down the side streets, in and out of alleys…

Cold Drinks Early Evening Stars

 

Early evening … lights just beginning to come on… the streets in Florence were strangely empty of people… even the Piazza di Duomo

1st Look - Bell Tower Details-Duomo

 

Maybe because it was late November.. maybe because it had just stopped raining..  It was peaceful.. quiet..and very pretty.

Shot of the Day – Reflections in a Dark Pool

Reflections of a Dark Pool

It is amazing some of the things you can find to shoot.. surreal and beautiful at night. This was a little park, I don’t know the name, in Barcelona. I was actually lost (or temporarily misplaced) and trying to get back to the hotel around midnight..Path looked familiar so I followed it to this scene.. and I am glad I did; Proof that there is a lot more to find than just landmarks and icons. Everywhere you may go, there are little gems hidden waiting to be discovered..  Search them out.. just happen upon them … get lost like I did.. and be ready.. You never know what is around the next corner

Budapest – Shot of the Day

 

Buda Castle and Chain Bridge ...

                                       Buda Castle and Chain Bridge …

Budapest is wonderful at night… The Chain Bridge and Buda Castle dominate the skyline from the river. This area, close to the Shoe Memorial is easily accesible by foot, tram, or bus from the town center.
