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!

This was the view from my bedroom balcony for close to two weeks. Majestic.
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.
