CAPRI ITALY – We’re hanging out here for a few days staying in a apartment near the Piazzetta. I foraged for photos, while Maria, her sister and our son spent the day being broiled in the sun on rocks at the Faraglioni.

CAPRI ITALY – We made it here after a longish day of travel. We spent two weeks here most summers when our children were younger. It hasn’t changed, except that it’s more crowded than every. The Piazzetta is one of the best people-watching spots in the world.

We plan our travel here around The Capri Literary Festival, an annual festival organized by our friends Antonio Monda and Davide Azzolini.

Day 3179 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

MILAN – I spent a good part of the day exploring City Life Milan, a major new real estate development in the heart of Milan. What was most surprising was the generous and well-maintained open space in this otherwise crowded urban environment.
