A pop of color from Italy to brighten your day!

Yesterday while editing my television ended up on the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun” and I started reminiscing (again) about how much I love photographing Italy.  I just thought I’d brighten your day with a pop of color from a few images from Vernazza, Italy. 

Can’t wait to go back!  By the way……watch for my new international web site coming soon!
