Photogenic Italy – A Tuscan Doorway

Here’s a photograph I took from my summer trip to Tuscany to help brighten up those winter blues a little.  It’s not the photograph displayed next to this entry if you have come to the home page of BlogfromItaly.com, just in case you were wondering.

Hope you like it. For the technically minded, it was shot in RAW and then processed into .jpg via the interesting DxO Optics Pro 6 RAW processing program.  The camera was a Canon Eos 40d.

I’m quite happy with the end result.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

I have other images lurking on my hard drive, and some should find their way here, or to my Flickr account.

Photography is a hobby of mine which I don’t have enough time to dedicate to, alas.

Long live digital cameras!

A quick note: Regular visitors to my blog will know that I tend to tinker rather more than I should with the overall layout of this ‘ere blog.

Berlusconi’s Back and Blaming the Left

OK, so he never really went away, although it looked as if his government was about to crumble for a few weeks or so. Then he managed to win a couple of confidence votes in Italy’s upper and lower houses of parliament, and came back with a vengeance, even if the Berlusconi government majority is looking flimsy, at least in Italy’s lower house.
