This photograph was made in Assisi, Italy during the 2007 Mille Miglia, a one thousand mile car race through Italy!  The streets in the medieval hilltowns of the Umbrian region of Italy are so narrow that it is often times difficult for a car to drive on the same road people are walking on.  As can be seen in this photograph, I was very, very close to the Porsche that was about to zip past me.  So, with my back up against the building wall and a wide angle lens strapped to the camera, I was able to show a bit more room than there really was.  Add a little bit of zoom blur (rotating the zoom setting on the lens while the shutter is open), and voila! – you have yourself a respectable racecar action photo!   Enjoy!

Ok, so Labro isn’t totally abandoned.  The prince still lives in the castle and there is a very popular restaurant in the village.  However, in terms of actual residents – yea, 16.  Including the cat.

In the afternoon of April 24, we arrived in Stroncone, which will be our home base for the next 10 days.  Below is a photograph of the San Giovanni church tower with the Apennine mountains in the background during the late afternoon light.  Looking to the left, one can see the entire valley — Narni, Terni, Spoleto, and on a clear day all the way to Assisi.  Needless to say, we have a great view every morning.  More updates soon.
