Dreaming of Italy

digital collage

Me and my shadow dreaming of a visit to Italy.

I've was going through boxes of slides that I liked to
have scanned to digital and I came across pics of my travel
in Italy in'92. I traveled throughout the country for one

The city of Florence (image used here in my digital collage)
was just one of the many beautiful places I
visited during this time, but the Cinque Terre known
has the "Five lands" was by far one of my favorites
and most memorable. It was here in the town Vernazza
that I stayed in a small fully equipped apartment with a
balcony overlooking the Ligurian sea.

"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for
travel's sake. The great affair is to move. "
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

I hope your days are filled with all good things.
Thank you for your visits and kindness.

I don't believe I've seen a digital collage by you before. Woohoo! It's lovely and I like it even better because not only are they from your photos, but because it is a collage made up of your specific memories. I've never been to Italy, but this collage gives me a sense of what that must have been like.

I love the shadows on the balcony, and the floating sunglasses, it's a perfect personal touch for conveying la vida dulce.

Wow, this is really neat. I like your clever layering and your bottom photo too. I would realllllly like to go to Italy some day and trace my family heritage. Lucky you to have these wonderful memories to build on:)

Washed out like memories - still bright and sultry...exquisite lattice work.

Bottom photo looks like a noble postcard - great shot.

Take me with you next time!

Great collage idea. I'm gonna steal it and no one can stop me. I did a "collage" kinda thing with some photos of my kids. I'll post them on my blog, if my kids give me their permission.

Kris Cahill said...

Really wonderful collage, Andrea. I also enjoyed your story about your travels in Italy, especially to the Cinque Terre, which I am unfamiliar with. Now I need to check them out!

I love Italy also and cannot wait to travel again. Ooh, I hope it's soon, to someplace wonderful!

I left something for you on my blog today.

I feel like I've travelled just from visiting here and being transported by your images.

Thank you for your visit and humor and feel better wishes.

How beautiful! I went to Italy for the second time in 2005. Visited family in my Mom's hometown of Controne and also got to go to Vietro and Amalfi. Such beauty... and, oh the food!! I dream of moving to Italy for good someday.
