My partner and I just returned from a week-long cruise in the Mediterranean, hitting Barcelona, Naples, Rome, Florence, Cannes and Palma, Majorca. It was a wonderful trip with lots to see and even more to photograph.
It was a major challenge, though, to play the dual role of photographer and tourist at the same time. And we had little flexibility due to the cruise’s tour schedules – we visited the cities mostly during the day and had to return to the ship usually by 6 p.m., so I didn’t have the opportunity for night photography.
Still, it was a wonderful experience to take in the sights with a photographer’s eye.
These are a few images from our first night/day in Barcelona and a day in Naples. I’ll continue to share more from our trip over the next few days.
