Stopping in the Bay of Naples for some Dinner

I always wonder what it would be like to have a non-stop boat-lifestyle. Having a boat… sailing up and down the Italian riviera… stopping in one little town for a snack… going to an abandoned grotto for some diving… sailing to a new port for dinner at sunset… I think that would be a nice life, eh?

This was shot in Naples. The city has a beautiful castle jutting out into the Bay of Napoli. It overlooks a cool harbor, a thriving shop and restaurant area, and Mount Vesuvius looming on the horizon.

I was told to closely watch all my camera gear and bags while walking around Naples. There’s supposed to be a lot of crime, and I don’t doubt it. But I didn’t see any while there. The biggest problem was only have 15 hours of daylight to shoot, and I felt like I was a bit robbed by the god of time.

Ahhh Italy!

I need to get back to Italy… It’s been too long… I’ve got a lot more places to visit and people to see. I’d love to go out shooting with my good friend Valerio again! Here are a few of my faves from ’round those parts.

The first is from a secret crypt under a church.  The second is Mount Vesuvius from the air.  The third shot across a farm near Pompeii.

Forgotten Churches of Italy

I thought I would take a walk down memory lane and show a few of my lesser-known pictures from inside Italian churches. The colors and glows that come through usually come out quite nice in HDR. Actually, I think it is very hard to go back to shooting churches without HDR because it just doesn’t do them justice without it.

The Caves of the Amalfi Coast

Giant caves were carved into the sea-wall. You can see how huge they are by that tiny-sized Italian man in his Euro-suit.

Colosseo by Day and Night

Here are a few pictures from the Colosseum… you know… that place in Rome where Russell Crowe killed Joaquin Phoenix? … which reminds me that I really should go watch more Joaquin Phoenix movies… he’s always good, especially when he plays a kinda crazy guy.
