In mid February, my wife and I took off on a two week trip around Italy visiting 5 cities-Venice, Florence, Milan, Rome and Palermo. Amazing beauty and history everywhere you turn. Looking at the incredible artistry and detail in the sculpture, painting and architecture, and realizing that these artists were basically working in the dark most of the time boggles the mind. The Uffizi in Florence and the Vatican Museum were especially over-the-top impressive. And, of course, Michelangelo’s David. No words do it justice. 

Much thanks to my amazing wife/assistant for her (mostly) unfailing patience with me ambling off and chasing pictures everywhere for stock. Not easy traveling with a photographer.
