I recently spent two weeks on a photography tour to Sicily. It was an amazing two weeks. Our group was made up of six hand-picked photographers. Photographers who wanted to photograph and could roll with the punches which always happens when traveling. Before the tour I knew two people in the group but loved getting to know the others.
We started in Palermo for a couple of days, then to Noto, over to Trapani and back to Palermo and a hundred stops in between for photographs of landscapes loaded with poppies or hilltop towns cloaked in fog or fish markets by the wharf. Elisa Paloschi, our great and wonderful tour guide who is also an amazing photographer and videographer, knows Sicilian towns and country roads so we were in places that I might never have found on my own.
The days were long. Most of the time we left after an early breakfast and returned at dark to drop off camera equipment and head out for dinner. I don't think we were ever back in our hotel room until about 10:00 PM. It was really a great way for a single, 'mature' woman photographer to travel to places unknown and get to locations that might have been way too much to do alone in a car in a foreign country with a different language. I will definitely do some more photography tours. I'll put up more pictures from the trip and tell you more about it over the next couple of weeks.
Okay, that accounts for some of the time I've been missing from the blog. What else has happened? Well, life. All I can say is I've been busy and I haven't been in the mood to write. But now I'm back!
