Entries in italy (1)


This is my first blog post so I figured I would give you some information about this site.  As seen in my bio, I bought my first DSLR in the summer of 2010 and started taking pictures.  I have had some great opportunities to photograph places around the world and I wanted to share what I have done.  To do this, I will start with posting an entry every week about the photographs in my portfolio, in order.  I hope you enjoy this and please leave some feedback either on the entry or the picture.  Thanks.

The first picture in my portfolio may be my favorite and it was not even taken with a DSLR, but the small point and shoot I traveled with.  I had the opportunity to travel to Florence, Italy for a conference and on my time off I explored the city.  This picture was taken from a window in the Campanile di Giotto, featuring part of the Duomo or Florence Cathedral, one of the iconic buildings of Florence.  The climb to the top of the bell tower gives magnificent views of this ancient city, but as I climbed down the stairs I saw this view and took a few seconds to compose the shot.
