Hey everyone! I am back in Italy again. This time I am here to photograph a fabulous wedding of Meghan & Justin next week. I’m also here to plan out the details for my next PhotoVenture in the fall as well as a small private tour that I will conducting for some of my close friends & family in the summer. I arrived here few days early to get adjusted to the time zone here and to do some “PhotoVenture”ing on my own. After a long flight to Rome & an hour train ride to Terni, my friend Max Brunelli picked me from the station and we went back to his home. As I was resting there, I could feel my body wanting to shut down. One of the best way to fight jet lag is to get adjusted to their time zone immediately. So rather than sleeping, I forced myself to stay awake by going for a long drive with Max to the countryside of Umbria. We drove through various parts of Umbria passing by Narni, Amelia & Todi. Along the way we stopped at numerous locations to take some landscape photos. Speaking of which, I am making an effort to capture more landscape photos this year in hopes that somewhere down the road, I will be able to make my own travel book.

Here is some of my quick attempt at landscape photography. I was falling half asleep as I was editing them so please be kind. I’ll have plenty more after my trip/wedding shoot is done:

Finally, I want to leave you with a quote from Rick Steves, a prominent expert on world traveling: “Thoughtful travel engages us with the world… it reminds us what is truly important. By broadening perspectives, travel teaches new ways to measure quality of life. Globetrotting destroys ethnocentricity, helping us understand and appreciate other cultures. Rather than fear the diversity, celebrate it. Among your most prized souvenirs will be the strands of different cultures you choose to knit into your own character. The world is a culture yarn shop, and travelers are weaving the ultimate tapestry.”

Buon Viaggio!
