Sorta off topic for this space (although maybe it shouldn’t be), a couple of weeks ago we spent a little more than a week on the Amalfi Coast of Italy, an amazingly beautiful part of the world.

As has been the case with most of the foreign travel in my adult life, I was part of the pack of family and friends tagging along with a choir in which the musical wife was singing, as they performed in various venues around the area.  Traveling with an organized tour has it’s advantages and downsides (I didn’t get nearly as much independent time as in previous trips) but it was still a lot of fun.

For those who like to follow along at home, many of the annotated pictures are in my flickr photostream. More will be added as I have time to process them. For now, here’s one of my favorites, an incredible view from the small arts colony of Ravello looking across the Mediterranean towards Salerno. We stayed in Maiori, that little town on the coast to the left.

My new SLR also records video, something not even possible with the eight year old model it replaced, so I experimented a little. One of the better results is on my Vimeo page.

Thanks for indulging my vacation slides. :-)
