About the Book
I am a curious travel photographer with a camera. My most powerful experiences are about discovering something interesting and new- be it a different culture, a fascinating landscape or a distinctive flavor.
This time my destination was Tuscany, a beautiful, picturesque region of Central Italy. I came here to discover the spectacular landscape, to sense the lively culture and discover uniquely wonderful cities. I wanted to taste the scrumptious local foods and taste the luscious wine of this famous land. Oh yes, Tuscany offered me a journey of fantastic discovery like no other. I was overwhelmed by its beauty.
