I recently got to spend two wonderful days exploring some of Tuscany with new friends Antonio and Adriana Lovison. They live in Padova, near Venice (about three hours north of where Fred and I live in San Rocco}. Antonio is a fellow JPGer (Lowison). I'm a big fan of his work, his sculptures and murals, as well as his photography. By studying his photography I've become more aware of the beauty of geometry, lines, and patterns all around us.

Captured this shot of Antonio at Siena's famous Piazza del Campo. The bleachers behind him are for the July 2nd Palio, a yearly historic horse race held on that day and August 16th.
