Italy from an iPhone – A Preview

September 15, 2011

A few weeks ago, I embarked on an awesome trip to Italy, one with stops in several cities, including Venice, Florence, Rome, and Pisa.  It was 10 days but still felt short, as 2-3 days in each city is just not enough.  But it was a great preview and now I know which places I would love to return to.

I tried to travel (fairly) light in terms of my camera gear, which included my DSLR with only 3 lenses (I ended up using only 1 of them the whole time), my G11, and of course, the iPhone.  Actually, I used 2 iPhones, if you want to get technical.  I have the 3Gs so I used that half the time, along with my father-in-law’s iPhone 4.  The picture quality is much better in the 4 than in the 3Gs, and I’m eagerly awaiting the latest version so I can finally upgrade my phone as well.  I took over 1k pictures between the 2 phones so that’s gonna be a fun time sorting through them.  However, here are a couple of shots that I’m digging at the moment.

Welcome to Venezia! I was awestruck at first view.

Of course, we had a stop in Pisa

Not creepy at all!

Please see my Flickr for more Italy photos.  And I hope to post a few mini series posts here soon as well.  *fingers crossed*

    These are fantastic! What apps did you use on the canal photos?

      Thanks so much, Reed! I used the Magic Hour app for editing on most of the photos you see here, but definitely on the Venice ones. It’s a fun app that lets you make your own effects and you can download others’ effects as well so it’s practically unlimited in what you can do.
