Start at the Beginning

As I settle in to this website redesign, I thought it would be an interesting yet enjoyable challenge to try and condense the last nine years of my photography as a Hollywood-style flashback. The general premise: I'll start with the oldest (digital) photos on my computer and post a blog entry reflecting on them, then I'll post newer photos and continue on until we're in the present. A daunting task to say the least. Nonetheless let's get started!

FLASHBACK TO:

FLORENCE, ITALY - SUMMER (2005)

Canon Powershot S230 - my first digital camera!

In the Summer of 2005 I spent a month living with one of my best friends, Justin, on a second floor apartment overlooking Piazza Santa Croce in Florence. The black and white photo above is of our apartment building. I packed an enormous piece of rolling luggage filled with lots of clothes....but the only camera I remember bringing was a little Canon point-and-shoot (my first digital camera). I had purchased a "massive" 512MB CF card to capture all the beauty that Italy had to offer. Here are the only photos that have stayed in my Lightroom library (for whatever reason) after all these years. If there's enough interest, I'll dig up the rest!
