Your Photographer on Vacation – Images from Milan

It was my second time in Milan and again I felt empowered by the amazing vibe of this big city. Milan is very different of other places in Italy, mainly because of its modern architecture and to walk in the streets of Milan and to see how amazenly people dress is an experience to live. Let me tell you: you can not leave Milan without going shopping!

With these I finish with the photos from my last vacation. Hope you enjoy these photos and hope I travel again soon to share some more!

Your Photographer on Vacation – New Images from Italy

In Brazil, my home land, we have a say: “Casa de ferreiro, espeto de pau” – something like “Blacksmith home, wooden skewer”. I wish I would have more time to look to my own photos. Anyways… I was going back to my files from last summer vacation in Italy and as I downloaded the demo for Nik filters I decided to edit a few of them to try it out. I really like the results, so here I present you: more images from beautiful Italy!Rm

Your Photographer on Vacation – Images from Italy – Part II

Giving continuation to my previous post I want to show you a few more photos from Italy – this time from Florence, Venice, Riomaggiore and Milan and surroundings.

St. Gimignano della Torre is a mediaeval city between Florence and Siena. It was the manhattan of medieval time, with 72 towers measuring until 70 matters high. Today this walled medieval hill town still holds 14 of these towers.

Gorgeous Venice! No words to explain it!

IMG_1629-Edit

A little tour from Venice with the traghetto and you can arrive to this beautiful little island called Burano. Very coloured and charming!

Your Photographer on Vacation – Images from Italy

Better late then never, right? I want to share some images form my summer vacation in Europe. They are not as good as they could be since I had only brought my Point & Shoot (it’s vacation, right?).

We spent over 4 weeks in Europe, biggest part in Italy, but we also had been in Switzerland and Germany.

In Italy we were in Rome, many cities in Sicily, Florence, Venice, Riomaggiore (Cinque-Terre) and Milano. I really have way too many photos  (which I even didn’t look at it completely yet) and even trying to pick a few for the blog post is not easy! So I decided to split it and today I’ll share a few images from Rome and Sicily. Hope you like what you see!

 

IMG_0590-Edit

In front of St. Peter’s Basilica, in the Vatican City.

IMG_0645

Capitoline Hill, in Rome.

IMG_0750

People around one of the inactive craters of Mount Etna. Definitely not one of my favourites spots on this trip, but I find very interesting the curiosity people have around things like that!

IMG_0829-Edit

Greek ruins in Agrigento (Yep, it’s right – Greeks were in Italy). Apparently Sicily was once the centre of the Magma Grecia. Check about the “Valle die Templi” in Agrigento here.

IMG_0849-Edit

Another city with many Greek Ruins is Selinunte. It’s a huge site and as per the records, the city had reached 30,000 people excluding slaves at its peak, before 409 BC.

IMG_0931-Edit

View of the Mediterranean Sea in Selinunte.

IMG_1052-Edit

Erice is on of a few medieval Borgos in Sicily. It a explendid little city in the top of mountain!

IMG_1098-Edit

“Il faraglione di Scopello” – one of the best places to enjoy the sea between the ones I have been on this trip. Check about Scopello here.

IMG_1162

This photo was taken in Sferacavallo, city just beside Palermo. We had stop at this city to eat in a restaurant that I highly recommend! “Ristorante Tratoria Delfino” offers you a sea food menu “all you can eat” style for something around €25. It is absolutely delicious!

And last but not least, I’ll share how we had visited Sicily! If you had never done it, try it – It’s totally worth it!
