Finding Photographic GemsYou know you’ve been bitten by the shutterbug when you veer off the beaten path more than you follow it.

When I got off the train at Riomaggiore (first, southernmost town of Cinque Terre, Italy) the crowd went to the right.

I went left.

If Marguerite looses sight of me, she knows that eventually, I’ll show up. Besides, if you get lost in Italy, at least you won’t go hungry.

I could walk only about 200 feet on the station platform in that direction where I noticed there might be a view over the brick wall. With everyone scuttling to get on into the town, no one was stopping to take a look. What I found intrigued me. When I look at this shot (below) I wonder a lot of things. Perhaps some of those questions might be just as obvious to you.

“I like to go out and find what I wasn’t looking for.”

Here’s what I found:

Riomaggiore, Italy

Riomaggiore, Italy

Turned out great as a 13X19 inch print. Something tells me this would be magnificent as a five foot high canvas print.

I’ll think about that. I found someone that does awesome gallery quality stretched photographic canvas.

There’s a whole big world out there to discover. Over time, I hope to take as big a visual bite out of it as I can. Anyone is welcomed to share and distribute my photos. Photography is meant to be seen, otherwise, it doesn’t exist.

Have fun and enjoy the hunt!
