”Memories Of Rapallo"
©David A. Ziser
This image was captured early on in our Europe travels last September. We had just spent 4 days in Florence and then headed up the Northwestern Coast of Italy to Rapallo, Portofino, and Santa Margarita. We spent three days exploring the area and were just blown away by the natural beauty of the surrounds.
Three things that struck me about this part of the world were the colors of the buildings and landscape, the kindness of the people, and the awe of walking through centuries of history. This image reflects that first set of feelings. The symmetrical interplay of the bright red colors of the windows against the rich beauty of the beautiful foliage nearly covering the building completely. The scene nearly begged for a photograph.
LaDawn and I occasionally disagree over who took a few of these types of photographs as we venture out on our photo-walks but I believe I took this image. Nevertheless, I give LaDawn full credit for all the post production on this image which was part of our 2013 calendar she designed for or family this year – very beautiful.
