TODI ITALY and NEW YORK NEW YORK – A long travel day: we started at dawn in Todi, drove to Pisa which actually has direct flights to New York, turned in our rental car, waited hours because Delta’s flights were mostly cancelled because of a computer failure on their part, miraculously boarded and flew to New York, and took a taxi home. All shot with my Leica Monochrom.

MODENA ITALY – We’ve come here to have dinner tonight at Massimo Bottura’s restaurant, Osteria Francesca, which has been crowned as this year’s best restaurant in the world. We had a lovely time with Massimo and his wife Lara, and indeed dinner was one of the best meals that we’ve ever had.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – This was one of the worst air travel days of my life, thanks to American Airlines. The aircraft that was supposed to take us to Antigua had a serious maintenance problem and had to be taken out of service. There was no American 737 at JFK so a replacement had to be flown from Laguardia. They loaded us on to the new plane but we sat on the tarmac while they topped up catering. Then there wasn’t a tractor available to push us off of the gate. Nine hours late. And we’re traveling with our son and daughter in law and their two-year old. Misery. I got a few images around the terminal but was too grumpy really to get much done.
