The town of Lecce in the heart of Puglia is known for many things – the intricate Baroque architecture, the many churches, St. Irene and St. Oronzo, the duomo and Santa Croce, Roman ruins and the end of the Appian Way, cascading flower boxes from balconies with iron railings, wine, hidden courtyards behind imposing large wooden doors, and more. But what I think of most when I think of Lecce is how photogenic the city is. With the curved alleys of buildings built from the warm yellowish Leccese stone, and the structures bathed in early morning or late afternoon light…well, I can’t think of many more places just begging to be photographed like this. I’ll skip the commentary today and just share the photos in the hopes that you’d like to join me on next year’s culinary trip to Puglia.
On my recent trip to The Awaiting Table, held at the Palazzo Bacile di Castiglione in Spongano, south of Lecce in Puglia, I fell in love with the Instagram app. Enjoy the filtered photo view of the week!
I have spent the last couple of days rambling around Rome, possibly my favorite place on earth. I have so many photos of the city that I sometimes lack the enthusiasm to shoot any more. But I decided on this trip to mess around with my Photogene app filters and give you a dramatic and moody view of Rome from my wanderings. I hope you enjoy!
