Lucca, Italy 2006
On a 2006 Mediterranean Cruise with assorted family and friends, one of our stops was Livorno, or Leghorn as it's sometimes called. This is not the destination. Florence and Pisa are where most cruise passengers head on tours. We had no intention of spending about three hours each way on a bus to Florence in the middle of summer. Instead, we decided to take the train about forty-five minutes to Lucca, a delightful walled city full of bicycles and outstanding restaurants. What a great day! I was using the Nikon D 50 back then and a whole new world of photographic possibilities opened up for me on this trip, not the least of which was to pay more attention to composition and not cut off interesting parts of the photograph!
