The state of the world has really changed over the last year and a half due to Covid-19. Things we took for granted are not readily available or may even exist anymore. People we took for granted may also have been lost. Feelings of isolation and the inability to travel have been issues many of us have had to deal with. This has been something that has affected my personal life as well as my professional life, particularly as a photographer, and with my recent focus on street and travel photography.
Fortunately, while not being able to travel is disappointing, there was a lot that I still could do from my studio. I went back and renewed my study of photography, working on new skills and delving more into how my relatively new Sony camera operates (Sony A7R3). It has also given me time to organize my ideas, research future projects I’d like to work on and, more generally, think about what I’d like to do in the future.
Reviewing and selecting photos to add to my website from the thousands I’ve taken over the past number of years of traveling in Italy has given me the chance to relive some of my trips. The memories brought up by these photographs make me smile. And for you, I hope my photos spark an interest in and a desire to travel through Italy - which I can highly recommend, also to learn more about the people and culture, and make you smile with recollections you may have of good travels there.
