Where In the The World, April-May 2010

In Travel, Uncategorized, Where In the World by David8 Comments

This morning I begin travelling to Italy. On Thursday morning, after a couple stops on the way, I’ll arrive in Genoa to meet up with Jeffrey Chapman. A couple days later we begin the first of two Italy Within The Frame workshops. 2 solid weeks in Liguria followed by an extension to Venice and then almost a week on my own to shoot, to write, to do some thinking. I’m very excited about this one and while I know many of you will be tempted to express your sympathy for me, try to hold back :-) I’ve been in beautiful places with great photographers and amazing food and wine before, I think I’ll survive. See you when I am back, but don’t abandon the blog, I’m going to make an effort to keep popping in with an image here and a story there.

    Good luck in Italy, sounds like you will be having a really hard time over the next few weeks, but I’m sure you will get along. Enjoy Venice, my favourite city.

    So the local wine to try in Cinque Terre is Sciacchetra – a sweet and delightful wine – it can only be found there. It is amazing to see grapes being grown and harvested in steep terraces along the ocean. Also a nice dry white wine called Cinque Terre . Area is also famous for their pesto. Enjoy!

    Glad to hear you are going to extend and take a bit of time for yourself David! Have a great time.

    Hi David,
    I came across your books as I was having a long term vacation in New York. No need to say how much I appreciate your work, both photos and books. I really had a lot of help coming from what you wrote, so thanks! I’m back to Italy now and live in Rome, but I’m gonna be in Trieste (not far from Venice) visiting a friend. If you have half an hour to spare for a coffee let me know, I’d be delighted to meet you. If not, I’ll still read your blog :) Enjoy your trip!

    I noticed a glaring hole in your ‘Where’s Waldo’ map – Bali! If you ever get a workshop in Bali or anywhere in Indonesia for that matter, let me know. I am in!
    Enjoy your Italy tour. As luck would have it, my wife and I are going a few weeks after you return so I will be interested in any tips for places that are must see’s in Venice and Cinque Terre.

    I recently traveled through the Dubai airport on my way to India and your book “Within the Frame” was prominently displayed at the airport bookstore. I already own a (worn out) copy, but I wish I’d snapped a pic of it surrounded by all the local titles for you! Pretty much from what I can see you’re “everywhere” in the world!!
