Fun & lively wedding in the heart of Abruzzo, Italy. Ceremony was held at the Church of Santa Maria in Piano, a gorgeous church adorned with fresco murals dating back to the 1500s. For the reception, we headed to Castello Chiola, an over 1100-year-old castle in the medieval town of Loreto Aprutino. Photos at the top of the post are a mix from around Loreto Aprutino and Contesa Vini, a winery in Pescara where guests were treated to a tasting the night before. Many thanks to my second shooter: Cinzia Bruschini (image #26 above is hers).
First, a heads up that I’ll be out of the office until March 5th, super excited to be teaching at the Photo Field Trip conference in Santa Barbara this weekend.
In the meantime, here’s a little scene I witnessed while visiting the Piazza Duomo in Lecce, a beautiful city in the Puglia region of southern Italy. I immediately thought of the 1956 movie, Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon), one of my favorites as a child. This story ends a little differently. So sad to see the balloon fly off without the little guy.
I was fortunate to explore some of New South Whales & Victoria over in Australia the past couple of weeks. The people were kind, giving and hilariously funny. Heartfelt thanks to my friends Alyda & Todd McGaw, Dan O’Day, and Samm Blake for being their country’s best guides.
Next week kicks off two months of travel including a long overdue visit to Australia, a talk on the second day of the Canada Photo Convention, sun time in Mexico and a few US cities on either coast in between. If you need to reach me the best way will be by email or text. Thanks!
