Where to start?
From the beginning of course. I would love to start showing you photos from Rome but let's start with the beginning. These photos are of the Puglia countryside. They were all taken on the train between Brindisi and Bari. The train was moving pretty fast and it was overcast so I couldn't get the focus and color I wanted. Also I was trying to find the cleanest window to shoot through. At Bari the train filled up and I had to sit in my assigned seat! Now I see why they want to have the Eurostar stop in Bari.
This one you can see how windy it was. I love how silver the underside of olive leaves are. You know it's windy when you see silver.
There's not just olive trees and vineyards in Puglia. There's also figs. See we have fall. The fig trees lose their leaves.
This one I like because the farmer is using he's land to the fullest. Most places leave the ground bare under the trees so they can rake up the olives.
Ok I did get one from Campania. You can tell because there are hills in this photo!!
Next time Rome...
