This collection comes from three weeks we recently spent in Rome and southern Italy, in the Puglia region. While the world clearly doesn't "need" more images of Rome, it's such a visual place, it's really impossible to resist. And Puglia, less traveled, rural and ancient, is one of the last relatively untrammeled areas in Europe. It is my hope that these images at least touch the feel of these people and this timeless, worn and beautiful land.
The music I've chosen for this Collection is "Wishful Thinking" from the Album Chiaroscuro by Ralph Towner and noted Italian jazz trumpeter Paulo Fresu. (I claim no rights to this music, and use it here under "fair use"...)
