Naples: Via Tribunali

Via Tribunali

Timeless scenes like this are the stuff of everyday life in the old heart of Naples. I love the strong features of the people. This was taken from the steps of the Church of Santa Maria del Anime Sante del Purgatorio.

Norwich: Parcour

Handstand Norwich

Free running/parcour has a growing number of practitioners in Norwich. These young men are doing their thing in the middle of town on a busy Saturday afternoon. a little selective masking and blurring has been used to de-emphasise the foreground figures on the left.

Cromer – “Gem of the Norfolk Coast”

August Bank Holiday 2007

The beach at Cromer on Saturday August 25th. The holiday makers enjoying some fine weather, some of them even braving the chilly waters of the North Sea!
The lifeboat on the beach is a temporary replacement for permanent lifeboat, which usually launches from the end of the nearby pier (where this picture was taken from), while a new boat is being built.

Video Post: Festa Di Sant Andrea, Amalfi.

This is a very low quality, but quite atmospheric video of part of the procession at the Festa Di Sant Andrea, which takes place every year on June 27th. The video was shot on my Fuji e900 digital camera in video mode and I was very pleased with the results, especially the sound, which captures the atmosphere of the event very well. Minimal post-production was done in iMovie and the additional voice over was added in GarageBand.

Minori panorama – Amalfi Coast

Minori Panorama  The small town of Minori on a quiet day in early July 2007. Ravello is visible further along the coast, and if you know what you looking for you can see the white building of La Rondinaia, Gore Vidal’s former home mentioned in my post of July 29th.The panorama is a composite of 4 images, merged in Photoshop CS3.

Italy – Ravello from the sea

Castiglione & Ravello

A recent image taken on holiday in Amalfi. This is Ravello viewed from the sea, with Gore Vidal’s former home ‘La Rondinaia’ prominent to the right and just above the centre of the photograph. To the left of this you can make out the row of busts that line the belvedere of the Villa Cimbrone. The village in the centre at sea level is Castiglione and the buildings at the extreme left are in Atrani.
