One great photographer in the making / Leica M-4

Yes indeed, an early photo of the

future superb and competent not to mention creative photographer. If I am a little prejudiced it's because she is my dear daughter Jennifer who has blossomed into a superb person and a great photographer. She always liked to come into the dark room and observe me work under the safe light. She always liked to carry a camera. This shot was made on Kodachrome 25. The lens was the 50mm Summicron F 2. She is carrying a Nikon Ftn with a Nikkor 50 mm F 1.4 lens.

More great faces / Canon 1D III

A few more from the Futures in Education event. These were shot with the Canon 70-200 F 4

Ortygia [Siracusa] / Canon G-11

Yes indeed, Ortygia, the original part of Siracusa where Archimedes used to play; perhaps under this same arch. One of the most wonderful cities in Sicily and all of Italy. A true gem.

An unique tradition / Nikon D-200

It is always fun to watch tourists and pigeons in Piazza San Marco in Venice. One euro will buy you a small package of seeds to feed the pigeons and they approach you from all sides. It is a strange tradition but it's part of the Venetian experience.

Summer cauliflower / Canon G 11

These summer cauliflowers were at the farmer's market in Castellammare. I made an excellent pasta with them.
