Friday Field Trip - all around Italy

Today we're going back to Italy, courtesy of some great photos from my mom. She took up photography after we kids had left the house and moved from black-and-white in a bathroom darkroom (which was made easier since we kids had vacated the premises) to color, and then to digital. Welcome, Mom!



















And, of course, what trip to Italy would be complete without this one:

Thanks, Elizabeth & Debra - and I'm sure Mom is flattered. I'll check to see exactly where they were taken. The Leaning Tower was easy, and so was the David.

Love Italy. Faves were Florence and of course, Venice. Beautiful shots. I believe the first picture is Florence.
