not-so-tacky couple (self) portraits

we all love traveling, and we all love coming back home with some "proof" of what we have done and where we have been.

We just spent a weekend in Bologna, an amazingly beautiful (gorgeous) city where we once lived (and met, and fell in love and all that).

We ate (and ate, and ate), and shopped, and drank gorgeous red wine, and wandered the streets we once knew so well.

I love photos, (understatement of the year), but I find the usual couple-staring-at-camera boring. so I tried to do a few twists and turns so that we would come back home with something a little different, but still managed to capture the spirit and feeling of the weekend.

The trick is to deconstruct the scene: think what are the essential elements, the ones that really tell the story of what you are doing or trying to capture, and then see how you can focus on just that.

This last one is my fave.
