Barbara’s Birthday Weekend

My New Year’s resolution this year is to take more “personal” photos. In other words, I want to force myself to photograph more of my own daily life. The last couple years, I have gotten burned out at times to the point where I didn’t even bring a camera on family trips out of town. I started to view photography as work and therefore shied away from practicing it outside of work. I need to challenge myself visually more this year and continue to grow. One of the first tests of my resolution was my wife’s 30th birthday weekend. I dusted off camera and made a few pictures of a very fun weekend.

Rome, Italy

The final stop of our honeymoon trip to Italy last month was Rome. We were there for three nights and saw thousands of selfie sticks along with about a dozen landmarks between Rome and Vatican City. I’m a history buff so this was one of my favorite stops on our trip. Everywhere we turned in Rome we seemed to wander into ruins of some sort.

Capri, Italy

Capri was our favorite stop during our honeymoon. We were there for just one night, but we got to experience quite a bit of the island during a boat tour. Capri has been a popular resort destination dating back to the days of the Roman Empire. It’s such a beautiful place that it’s hard to take a bad photo on the island. That said, I hope my photos did it justice:

Positano, Italy

Despite its beauty, Positano served as the backdrop to the writing of one of The Rolling Stones’ darkest songs, “Midnight Rambler.” In 1995, Mick Jagger told Rolling Stone the story behind the song:

That’s a song Keith (Richards) and I really wrote together. We were on a holiday in Italy. In this very beautiful hill town, Positano, for a few nights. Why we should write such a dark song in this beautiful, sunny place, I really don’t know. We wrote everything there — the tempo changes, everything. And I’m playing the harmonica in these little cafes, and there’s Keith with the guitar.

Pompeii, Italy

The city of Pompeii, Italy was destroyed when nearby volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted on August 24, AD 79. The town and its residents were buried and forgotten until the ruins were discovered and eventually excavated hundreds of years later. Today the ruins are one of Italy’s top tourist attractions.

Sorrento, Italy

My wife and I are honeymooning in Europe and spent the first few days of our trip in Sorrento, Italy. The city is a popular tourist destination south of Naples along the western coast. Besides the hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars, Sorrento offers stunning views of the Gulf of Naples backdropped by nearby Mount Vesuvius.
