Hotel Fiorino, Firenze


"For a relationship to stay alive, love alone is not enough. Without imagination, love stales into sentiment, duty, boredom. Relationships fail not because we have stopped loving but because we have stopped imagining".     -  James Hillman

Twilight at the Ponte Vecchio


My Ponte Vecchio photograph, shot in the evening, finished in a painted style. I like this process not only because of the oil painting effect, but how it silences the crowded feeling at this ever popular tourist site in Florence, Italy. Even though Florence in the summer is overflowing with people, you can still get lost in 
quiet antiquity down a side street. That's what I loved about Italy's cities. Always bustling, but at any moment, romantic & private.

Such a pretty roadside winter scene, but hoping this is the last cold blast for the season.
March is upon us. Spring... please make yourself known!

My tribute to Philadelphia

Geno's in HDR                                                          ©KatVitulanoPhotos

This is Geno’s  - the place to go for a Philly cheesesteak! I took this nighttime HDR shot in 2010. You may have seen Geno’s featured in the latest Geico commercial, with the Geico Gecko dancing in front -

Growing up outside NYC, then moving to south jersey for college, I learned the NY/Philly rivalry is huge. I love NY, but have grown to love Philadelphia too, especially after my son spent college years in our country’s first capitol city (from 1791 for about 10 years, before our forefathers moved it to Washington DC). 

The Philly accent really is different, but gets rolled into category of New York’s.  Here is a link to a funny article – check out the Philly phonetic spelling of these phrases.  I <3 NY…. and Philly, the city of brotherly love, too!

More photos of Philadelphia here - thanks for viewing!
