Italian Gelateria Poster

Gelateria of Italy Poster (click to enlarge)

Posters make a nice reminder of a special trip.  During your trip take lots of pictures with a theme of some sort.  Better yet, pick several potential themes since you never know how many images you will get of one theme, or if that theme will even work once you start building your poster.  Everyone has seen posters of Irish Doors,  many towns have posters of the various bars.  You should build your own posters to personalize the memories hanging on your walls.

The poster above has the signs of various gelateria we visited during an Italian vacation.  Along the edges of the poster are the flavors of gelato we enjoyed (I should say thoroughly enjoyed!).  Yes, we had over 50 different flavors.  The signs are from gelateria in Venice, Florence, Sienna, Manarola, Bellagio, Vernazza, and San Gimignano.  Not a bad gelatto among the entire bunch!

The best?  Far and away Vizio Virtu in Venice.

This poster is 24″ x 36″.   I had it printed out at Costco for less than $10, a real bargain!

Manarola Sunset

Manarola Sunset

Another panorama image using my Really Right Stuff PG-02 Pro Omni-Pivot Package.  This image was taken from a promontory overlooking the the town of Manarola, one of the “Cinque Terre” (five towns) along the Italian coast in the Liguria region of Italy.  It was taken just after sunset during the “blue hour” which has become my favorite time of day to shoot.

This panorama consists of six images in two rows with three images in each row.  The long exposure gives the water that foggy look.  In actuality, the waves were crashing into the stone coast but the 30 second exposures softened those.

By the way, I took this image after a great meal at Trattoria dal Billy which is HIGHLY recommended.  The view is spectacular, make sure you drink the local Cinque Terre wine.  We brought a bottle home to drink a year later and the memories flooded back.
