Arriving in Rome and hit the ground running. Check in early to the hotel and start work immediately. Too bad I don’t really sleep on planes that well. I’m filming lectures for a class. But instead of just talking to a camera in a studio, we’re filming on location. When you’re talking about something that

Because, Venice…

Is it possible to sum up a place? These are the photos from one day in Venice: 8:27am – 8:52pm. . . . Venice. As the tours pour in, people live here. As the sequens cover the ground from the Carnaval, there are people who barely look up at the eons of history that makes

Rome and holidays…

So… Rome was as it usually is this time of year: pretty warm and sunny. The roads around the major sites were closed to traffic, the tourists and nuns were out en masse. High season is this way all across Europe. And there are always secret ways to avoid the crowds. . . Stay tuned…

So… what is different about these two photos?  vs  Over four years of time has passed since I made the one on the left. It has since had a life of its own, being featured on the cover of my University’s magazine and being printed rather large a few times. Four years of time on

Making great leaps to get back…

The mystique of Instagram and Hipstamatic is that it gives a little twist on the everyday life, the mundane normalcy, and with a little filter added, a whole new world appears. I love the ability to take images that would actually be fairly unusual in their own right… but then doing the Instagram/Hipstamatic thing and

“Gravity release me, And don’t ever hold me down; Now my feet won’t touch the ground.” ~Coldplay The purpose of travel is to experience that which you never could have otherwise.

Long day of museums. Highly educational, but not the most amazing series of photos… . Not everyone is entertained by fancy urns and half-naked sculptures… . . . . Stay tuned… -Noah D.

The places you can never remember…

I wonder how many churches… I wonder how many cannoli’s… I wonder how many cobblestones and steps and benches. It seems to be a theme in my blog, the travel overload is becoming apparent. But I speak it aloud to remind myself that if I cease to look on the world with the eyes of

Naples and fumeroles…

Near Pompeii is Naples. It is one of the largest cities in Southern Italy. Ancient, medieval and modern things abounding… . . I think the highlight of most of the student’s day was meeting Bruno. He is the tour guide that took us into the semi-active volcano outside Naples. The sulfur steam must not be

**EDIT** I had misplaced lost a card; that’s why I keep double back-ups! If you have seen this post before, there are now twice as many images. It is easy to see a foreign place as a little slice of Disney World. Don’t deny it, it’s okay, everybody does it. Travelers are on Safari, everything passes by
