Victoria - By the Beach - Monterosso, Italy

White Caviar Life and I were only in Monterosso al Mare for a week, but Victoria who we met at the local supermarket became like a close friend, providing us with tips and letting us know if something was happening in town. I grabbed this shot of Victoria on one of our last evenings in Monterosso, looking great as always, and with a very nice bike as well. If you are in Monterosso, drop in and say hello for us!

Day One in Venice - Future Doppelganger

Travel always has some surprises in store for you and Venice, the impossible city surrounded by the waters of the lagoon of course would be no exception. White Caviar Life and I managed our 70 KG of luggage from train onto the Vaporetto - the famous water bus of Venice - with a surprising minimum of fuss. I put us on the back way - not down the Grand Canal - to St Marco which probably made life a little less tourist crushed. But bumps did ensue, the wind blew, and not long after alighting the 'bus' I heard a chorus of voices, in English, shouting, 'the hat, the hat'. But whose hat? My New York purchased panama was safely strapped to the back of my day pack; who's could it be and where? Well it was mine of course! And there it was bobbing in the Canal San Marco, the widest of them all, slowly making its way toward the pylons of the pier, dipping ever more slightly into the lagoon; we stood there in shock waiting for it to sink to the bottom, to join that ancient third pillaged column, never recovered, way back when. The Canadians who sounded the alarm were busy asking us 'how much was it, is it special?' and that sort of thing, a man was tempted to dive in a save it for me. No boat hook in view, a broom was spotted, commandeered, and then I stepped over the chains, dipped the broom head toward my hat which was stubbornly refusing to sink; and out it came on the first try. There was clapping, whistling - it had been quite a show apparently, then relief and congratulations all round. Venice had welcomed us well; letting us now the water was going to be present always and to be respected; and then she had another more pleasant surprise. As we dragged our bags across Piazza San Marco; I saw a gentleman in a panama hat (it looked like it might have once had a swimming lesson too); classic attire, a dog, a cane and a fabulous fat cigar! And even with bags in-tow, I attempted my first Street Fashion Venice (I think I had my wet panama on my head). Thank you sir, thank you Venice; what a wonderful welcome you gave us.

Traveller Style - Vernazza, Cinque Terre - Italy

Not one but two travellers at that. It's pretty hot out in the sun, you can take a dip in the picturesque harbour (more on that to come); or you can step into the narrow, steep and winding 'streets' that make up this Italian Mediterranean town, find a bar, and just relax. Which is pretty much what was happening when I met these two young women, who asked it I could do a shot for them with their phone. Of course I obliged and then asked for a shot for Street Fashion Sydney too!

Como Street Style

Sometimes a wrong turn is the best direction. I'm not talking about the fashion, I'm talking about photographing this great Italian Autumn ensemble before I even saw Lake Como, seems the lake is in the other direction.. But that's OK as I saw more of Como, the town and of course this black on black with long blue denim coat outfit. Thanks for the shot, yes I found the lake and I'm loving Como!

On The Beach - Monterosso Al Mare, Cinque Terre - Italy

The hills, the water, the clouds streaming overhead and ever changing; it's all just so beautiful, I have to remind myself to look down as well. That's how I spotted these young sunbakers, limbs akimbo on the sand at Monterosso.  I'm going to call this shot - Five Beauties of Monterosso - and maybe submit it to a photo competition or two; after all, you never know do you!
