L'Arcano resturant, Rome

We were sitting at a little cafe in Rome with Rick and Iva Curry and had a good view of this restaurant a small way down the road. I took several shots of it but an employee stood at the entrance, arms crossed looking at me. He remained until I pretended to give up and sat back down at our table. He then went inside and I got up and got the shot I had been looking for.

Chevy Truck Not For Sale

On my way to workout each morning I drove by this old Chevrolet truck.  After several times of telling myself that I needed to go during good light to take a picture, I finally did. While taking some shots, the owner of the truck came out to see what I was doing. I wondered if he would be upset that I was trespassing on his property or be fine. He was very happy that I was taking pictures and gave me a bit of background on the truck. One interesting tidbit was concerning the "Not for sale" sign. His wife got fed up with so many people stopping to ask if they could buy the truck. To appease her, he posted the sign. I feel that sign makes the shot much better.

Wizard's Hat Fountain

We had a great opportunity to take some our our kids and grand kids on a Disney cruise. While on board I took a few shots in different locations of the ship. I combined an outside shot of the wizard fountain along with a shot of a wall in the toddlers play area inside to get elements for this picture.

This photo, for me, gives a contrast between the gladiators and the Christians who were obviously at odds with each other. At the location of the cross near the top is where Caesar sat while watching the lions kill Christians.
