Paths: Pittsboro

I love the pockets of rural throughout the south. In our little town, nestled between the Piedmont and Sandhills regions of North Carolina, you can draw a circle half an hour out from any big city and drive out into nothing but kudzu and cicadas. This path is in a meadow about ten minutes from our house. Our adventurous son and I were taking photos with a variety of digital and film cameras, ranging from our Nikon and Canon DSLRs to my old Seagull medium format, and his little Rollei 35.

Perspectives: Florence

I was just going through some old photos for a project and ran across this one of my husband watching the action around the base of the Michelangelo’s original Renaissance marble statue, David, housed in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence. The O.G. sculpture dates from the early 16th century and is seventeen feet tall. He was carved from single block of marble from the quarries in Carrara in Tuscany. We visited Italy in 2017.

Here are some interesting facts about David. Another cool thing you can see at the Accademia Gallery is the tenor viola made by Antonio Stradivari (my husband was more enamored by that than David).
