New Photos from Italy

For those of you interested in photography, I have many new photos from my recent trip to Italy.

I was there during the terrorist attacks and needless to say, it really deflated my enthusiam.

I hope everyone continues to travel, and that this conflict is resolved soon.

To view the photos, go here:

Thanks for posting. I very much enjoyed the panoramics.

We are planning to visit in March.

Can't wait!

Jim,

Wonderful photos as usual. I only hope my as yet undeveloped ones from Italy can come close. I used several of your other photos as wallpapers at work to inspire me before my recent trip.

NO surprise, Jim. The photos are up to your usual standard.
By coincidence, my three favorites are a trio of panoramics at sunset--the gondolier in Venice (great composition for the panoramic dimensions!), sunset over Siena and dusk at the Aragonese Castle.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. And thank you to those that emailed me.

I'm having a great time reading all of the trip reports to Italy. Everyone here at Fodors must have visited Italy in the last few months, or is planning a visit in the next few months.

Absolutely love the panoramics also. I been to the same places in Italy you have. But you seem to have seen more of it than me.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow, Jim! Those are FANTASTIC photos! I particularly love the black & whites you got out of that taped up plastic camera. Did you develop them yourself or have a lab do it? I would love to try something like that sometime. Your color shots look like postcards, better than postcards.

Thanks for the comments folks.

I've had many people email about the plastic camera I used for some black and white shots.

It's a toy camera called a Holga. Everyone produces different results because they have light leaks in different places...some have no light leaks. I got mine locally, but here's a link to get one if you're interested.

Just to note...I have no affiliation with the folks at the Holga link. I simply found them by running a search.

I'm glad this was brought back to the top.

Wonderful photos, Jim; you've got a great eye. Like others, I really liked the black & white and panormamic shots. And I also loved the shots in Venice and that gorgeous shot of the buildings in Siena glowing at sunset.

Thanks Capo and Super. I used a Hasselblad Xpan camera for the panoramics. This camera basically exposes the equivelant of two frames at a time...in one frame.

If you have more equipment questions, please email me because I don't get to this forum more than a couple times a week.

Thanks again.

Great stuff. Do you by chance have any shots from the Cinque Terre region? We're going for the holidays.

I just retuned from Italy and haven't developed my film yet. I don't think I will anymore, I'll just use your photos to show my family! You did a beautiful job.

Loved your shots of Siena and San Gimignano. Is that far from Siena?
