Day 16~ September 16th~ Tuscany

Thirst quenched

Sorry for my absence in the last week! I was on a photography trip inside the heart of Yunnan (autonomous region is South West China). I have posted some portraits from the trip on my other blog if you are interested in viewing them.

But here we are back in Tuscany! Amazing feeling it is for me to dive back into images of Italy, art, beauty and human creativity after being for one week inside the heartland of China. The contrast is stark and it proves to me that humans and art are inseparable, no matter what the circumstances are. The simple people of Yunnan live art through their dress, the building of their homes, their tribal ways, and there so as much beauty in that as there is in this marvelous artwork of Siena in Tuscany.

Day Two Hundred Thirty One, September 10, 2011

drip drop

One of the most charming things about Geneva and the neighboring villages in Switzerland is the little fountain in every village square. Beautiful stone pools with a tap of running water and a background of glorious looking flowers in shades of red and pink. They just make you stop, look, sigh and wonder at the beauty of life. It takes very little to inspire me in a place like this where simple details create a whole lot of charm.

Geneva in September! A fountain of inspiration!
