I don't know if it is the combination of colors, the white puffy clouds or the rolling farmland. A visit seems to just calm me down.

Beautiful Italy https://www.jackzphotography.com/blog/2017/5/beautiful-italy We just got back from two exciting weeks in Italy.  We focused on the northern part and it turned out to be a great choice.  The usual tourist locations in Rome were full of tourists but it wasn't very hard to find spots that were a little off the beaten path.  Café Greco is the oldest coffee shop in Rome and it is absolutely charming.  It is located close to the Spanish Steps and is a step backward to another time.

Cleo's Nature Walk https://www.jackzphotography.com/blog/2017/3/cleos-nature-walk We had a great day at Cleo's Nature Walk after what looked like a torrential downpour earlier today.

Don Johnson put together a group of 22 enthusiastic photographers in a unique setting.  If you haven't been there you should check it out.

Lookin' for a Friend? https://www.jackzphotography.com/blog/2017/2/lookin-for-a-friend HIGH FIVE to the hard working folks that run the Idaho Humane Society.  2016 was another year of 100% placement of animals eligible for adoption.  Thanks to a group of 1200 volunteers who make the wheels turn, 2017 should be just as strong.  Please join me in supporting this fine organization.

Keep it simple....stupid https://www.jackzphotography.com/blog/2017/2/keep-it-simple-stupid Sometimes we work so hard to find a perfect photo that we overthink things.  The weather has been cold and frankly a little ugly and it is hard to get motivated to go out and shoot.  Abstracts are the perfect cure.  Before you know it you are lost in the beauty that is all around us.  I would tell you where I found all this simplicity but then everyone would go there. :)

Snowmageddon https://www.jackzphotography.com/blog/2017/2/snowmageddon Winter in Idaho can be really beautiful and our measure for snowfall is our backyard squirrel.  He sits on an outdoor table and he measures about four inches tall.  On December 16th we got a nice two inch snowfall that turned the countryside white.  Usually this would be gone in a day or so but not this year.  We haven't seen our squirrel in over seven weeks!  COME ON!

It's Really Cold https://www.jackzphotography.com/blog/2017/1/its-really-cold The family went to Donnelly and got caught in a blizzard.  Our guests from California nearly died and it was only 15 degrees! If they had stayed a little longer they wouldn't have made it back to southern California.  In the time we have been here in Idaho I have never shoveled so much snow and it looks like more is on the way.  On the bright side.....it makes for some wonderful pictures.
