Italia 2006

These shots are from a trip to Tuscany in June 2006 at the kind invitation of Ann, one of Carmel's oldest friends, who was celebrating her half-century at a lovely villa near Panzano in Chianti country

Most shots were taken with a Nikon F4 and a 50 year old Leica IIIf with a contemporary, but recently overhauled, 35/3.5 Summaron.

To be perverse, I'm starting at the end with a shot which sums up Italian football fervour.

Football fans Italian Style

Pisa fans bring the city to a halt on the last day of our stay
after Italy qualify for the semi-finals of the World Cup
with a last-gasp penalty.
