So... Wendy and I went to Italy in April. Or, to put it better, for April. We left on the 4th and returned on the 28th for a total of 24 days of bliss. It was quite a (successful!) test.
This was the perfect opportunity for me to exercise my photo skills and try to get better at translating my visions to reality. Lord knows I need a lot of work at it :) Practice makes perfect, though. In the past two years I have averaged about 1500 photos/year, or 4 photos a day. Not bad, eh?
In 24 days in Italy, I took 3044 photos! That's more photos than I have taken in the last two years! A puny average of 127/day. The only real issue is that I've gotten a lot better, and so the photos themselves have gotten better, and there are fewer easy trashes.
Now that it's almost a month after we've gotten back, I figure it's about time I put some of these online. So today, I put the first day only online - our first full day in Venice. The 22 photos can be seen in my Venice set on my flickr page.
-- my life is amazing.
