Room with a view

view from the front gate

We went to Italy last month, and it was one of the best

vacations we ever had!  I will start off with the first place we

stayed:  Positano.  We rented this lovely apartment

from www.vrbo.com called Villa Fior di Limone.  We

had the best view from our balcony.  I would make tea

every morning, and just sit out there and enjoy the

boats on the water, or the village below.  At night, we

could hear music from one of the restaurants.  One

night we even heard a party boat in the water.  They

were blasting dance music, and I am sure the whole

town heard it!  Positano is a vertical city, with many

levels.  One day my husband decided to count the steps

up to our apartment from the main street level (the beach is

a few levels down), and there were 443 steps!  I can walk

on flat ground forever, but I was never good with uphill, or steps,

so it was a little challenge for me.  But the view was so worth it!

If you go to the Amalfi coast, I recommend this place, or at least

this town!

Moon over Champs Elysees

available on etsy.com

We were lucky to be in Paris on a clear night with the full moon.  We climbed the winding staircase

that makes me feel like I’m going to die after I get to the top, and had this spectacular view.

My husband, Jim, took this photo.  And without a tripod!  It’s tricky getting good shots at night

without it.  But I believe they had a sign that forbade the use of tripods.  I really love this photo,

not only like this, but Jim actually made a triptych out of it, and put the 3 panels between glass.

It looks awesome against the red wall of our dining room.  This photo is available at etsy.com if you

think its awesome too!

My first awesome photo

for sale at Etsy.com

This is my favorite photo from Chicago.  We haven’t had the camera very long, so Chicago was “practice” with it.  I love cityscapes at night.  We went up to the observation area of the Hancock building to take photos.  I was hoping it was open like it is at the Empire State Building, but it wasn’t.  There was a fence blocking the view, and I couldn’t get decent pictures with it there.  So we went inside, and I had no choice but to take photos through the window.  There

was a reflection from the cafe behind me, so I had Jim put his had above the camera while the lens was up against the glass.  This and a few others turned out great.  I sold this print at an art crawl event, and it was published in the Vanderbilt University 2010 calendar.  I also have it hanging on my wall!  You can own it too available at Etsy.com.
