A Photograph That Saved A Thousand Words - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

Photography can be such an amazing venue for expression and explanation without many words. As the cliche goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. It’s also a great tool for representing a moment in time. However, just because one image saves one thousand words, it doesn’t mean no word is needed to provide context. This makes me think of a situation in which just because a good employee can save his boss tons of money doesn’t mean the employer won’t have to compensate him for his work. Alright, I digress…

Take this image for example, I made it before the National Historic Archery Challenge's Final in Bevagna, Italy. How would you interpret it or caption it? Knowing that
the people of this town is capable of drama in high fashion, I won’t be surprised at some of the answers that you will put below. 😊

Knights, Dames and More in Foligno, Italy - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

They say it’s in the air. I call it ambiance that I can smell with eyes. In about two weeks, an ancient Italian town of Foligno will be where your eyes meet good-looking Dame and Messeri.

To put out such a medieval setting is no walk in the park. But, I can attest that final touch-ups proved to be fruitful.

Can you believe this much fuss has to do with horses? If you allow me a chance, I can explain.

We Walked into a Movie Set in Bevagna, Italy - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

When we stepped into this small town in the Umbria region of Italy that afternoon, we felt we walked into a movie set.  Every one seemed to be playing a role that belongs to the medieval era.

The golden light basking on the "set" does nothing in persuading me otherwise.  As we drew closer to the drama that unfolds in front of them, we became part of it.  In Bevagna, they don't show you what life in Medieval time was like, they live it.
