Good morning everyone.
My intention during my trip to Italy was to blog the entire experience on the road but as much as we are advanced with technology in North America there is something to be said for the rest of the world. So this is defiantly a delayed Ciao Bella from sunny Italy, where the temperature is a warm 30 Celsius everyday almost, very sunny with fantastic blue skies. Italy has touched all my senses and has opened me to so many fantastic wines, food, and culture. So join me over the next 2 weeks as I celebrate Italy through the eyes of my lens.

|Our bus towards the end of our stay which was |
used for Miss Italia, we got a lot of waves
as we drove around Tuscany
Montecatini Terme is a charming resort town which we used as our base for the first 8 days. Once checked in there was no time for rest as we gathered our cameras and headed into town for a short stroll through the streets of our home base.
There are so many things that I love to shoot pictures of, doors, windows, gates, wrought iron , animals and people. My favorite are door knockers and door bells. I love the old look and feel the rust the bright colours. I love the out of place things, things that create emotion, that leave you thinking and wondering.
The following images are a few of my favorite shots that I took the first day.
As we walked into town just around the corner I discovered this beautiful shutter with a wrought iron railing and screens on the windows so beautiful. I love the colour combinations the earth tones.
What can I say but colour colour colour, the contrast between the absolutely fantastic yellow and the green just scream take my picture and I wasn't disappointed.
I love how the rust plays with the turquoise and the pink and then you have that wonderful chocolate door yummmm. again we have wrought iron, colour and aging what more could you want in a photo.
I love the elegance of this shot,not alot of colour used but the wrought iron manages to stand out so perfectly, like lace.
I love how the shadow is reflected on this building adding even more character to it and the railing style is so pretty and elegant another wonderful example of Italian style.
