Our days here in Tuscany are full and long. Making (rather than “taking”) good images takes a lot of time and concentration. But even when we’re exhausted, we get an infusion of fresh energy from the excitement of the creative process. Of course, tasty Italian food and wines, chosen by our personal sommelier Fritz, help as well.

Here are a few samples of the hundreds of images that have already been created, analyzed, worked on, discussed, shared, “solved,” downloaded, processed, shot from the hip or labored over.

What we are shooting: Poppies, sweeping vistas, medieval architecture, people, cracks in the sidewalk, flowers, trees, rust, archways, windy roads and narrow lanes, dogs, cats, cows, sheep, birds, more dogs, and each other. And when there’s nothing else to shoot, we take pictures of our cameras or our food — will somebody please stop us?
