    These photos are from a trip I took about 5.5 years ago to Italy. I was there for two weeks and got to Travel all over the northern part of the country. At the time, I had no clue that I wanted to be a photographer.... after developing these pics from several of my Kodak Disposable (I didn't even own a camera when I went there) I feel in love with the art of it. These photos are what gave me the inspiration to try every day to become a better photo artist.... I hope you all like them.

    Comments and critiques welcome.

    You did a great job back then. I bet you would love to go now with the new gear.

    Thank you everyone!

    AIRIC - you have no idea! I can't imagine what kind of nuts I'd go if I got to spend another week there with the new equipment.... heaven I tell ya! That place was one of the most beautiful countries I've ever been to. A photographers dream.

    Thanks for the feeback!

    Taken with a disposable camera? Holy cow. They are GOOD! Good! Good!
    Shows so clearly that THE perfect equipment is not what really makes a photo. Even back then you have already shown such a good eye for things. I love the first with all the scooters in front! That is so "Italy" to me, and you've captured that!

    I take it the conversion and toning is something done at a later stage?
    But it helps them a lot. Really suits these!
    Makes me feel all small and humble, who I have taken photos for decades, and still "snap"... :oops:
