A  beautiful Italian market scene

"This is the quaint daily market in Campo di Fiori in the center of Rome, Italy. Over a decade ago I spent some time studying abroad and stayed in small apartment not far from this market. I have wonderful memories of visiting Campo di Fiori almost every morning to pick out fresh breads, cheese, and flowers for my room. It's always a treat to go back and visit."

The Spanish Steps

"The Spanish Steps link the church Trinita dei Monti with the Piazza di Spagna below. It is a magnificent staircase built in the 17th century combining straight sections, curves and terraces. A visit to the Spanish Steps gives you the opportunity to meet people from all over the world or just sit down on one of the steps and watch the passers-by."

The Colosseum at night

"This particular night, I caved and paid five euro for a little dingy tripod that a street vendor had tirelessly been trying to sell me. I increased the ISO on my Canon Rebel to 400 and set the f-stop to 3.5 and a full one-second shutter speed. This was the result. Needless to say, I am thrilled I bought that little tripod! I still use it on many occasions."

"Walking through the ancient narrow streets of Rome's Trastevere section really takes you back in time. I love the paint color on this building and the marvelous reflection also caught my eye."
