Napoli 2006 (dedicated to Ombretta)

This set of photos is dedicated to one of the beautiful girls from Napoli; an on-line friend who I first met in the ESL café, where she calls herself ombretta, and who is now one of my MSN contacts and Facebook friends as well. The internet is so much fun. :)  I promised her that I would show a few photos that I took there. So, here they are. Mostly tourist scenery shots and one nice portrait of an older gentleman. I thought he had a great face and with hands and feet I asked him if I could take a photo of him. He didn't mind. I already posted a few people shots from Napoli, (click here to see them) but for some reason I didn't post any landscape shots. I so want to go back to Napoli and surroundings. It is a great city and the people are absolutely lovely. Ombretta: I hope you like the photos (and all the other visitors as well of course)

Camera gear used for these shots: Canon 350D and the Canon Pro1 compact. I didn't have the 30D and the 40D yet.

Update: no photos.

Hi there.

First of all it's nice to see that my blogs get so many hits from all over the world. Please don't be shy and leave a message every now and then. If you can't do it in English, do it in your own language. I will find someone to translate it for me if I can't understand it. :)

A little while ago I had a bit of a set back because one of my external photo harddrives broke down. Of course I had the originals all backed up on DVD but the edited ones I hadn't.

As a result of that I have to re-edit a lot of photos. At the moment I'm concentrating on a few series that I shot during the Limerick Gay Pride week 2008 and the alternative miss Limerick pageant which took place last Saturday. You can see some of the shots on my Limerick blog and the rest will follow soon. So make sure you check back once in a while.

On this blog there will be more photos from Italy and also photos from Barcelona. I was there during the Mercè festival and got some spectacular shots. So do check back on a regular basis.

More Venezia

A few more shots I took in Venice, Italy. Some colour and some black and white. Certain shots just work better in black and white.
