Italy from an iPhone – A Preview
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!
