Blog-a-long Day 3 Great Memories

Calamari, my favorite in Orvieto

Pasta with Black Truffle in Orvieto

Last mean in Orvieto

 Meatballs in Venice
 Lunch in Rome
Last meal in Italy

Last Summer I spent 13 days in Italy; 7 days in Orvieto attending an Art Retreat, 3 days in Venice and 3 days in Rome.  One of the members of our group, my good friend and travel buddy Maryann Villavert, had been traveling through Asia before she met us in Rome.  One of the great things she taught us was to take a picture of our food to  capture the memory of sharing a meal with friends.  I thought it was such a great idea.  I took me a while to remember to photograph the plate BEFORE I started eating.  I look at each meal and remember what we were doing, where we were and how it felt being there.

I am going to China in 46 days, I plan to take pictures of my meals, savor each moment, capture the feeling through my photographic eye.

Thanks for stopping by.
