What is the perfect pizza? In my youth, there was no such thing as a bad pizza. I would even eat pizza from the supermarket. You know, the frozen type you get in a box with the face of that blue eyed Italian Paul Newman on the cover. Then I got older. Not wiser, just older. There is a local weekly magazine in town called Las Vegas Weekly and somewhere around 2006, they named the best neighborhood pizza place of the year. It was within 10 miles of where I lived at the time and it is truly a gustatory delight. Called Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana, it is…, well…, please read a very short description for yourself here. Our favorite is a margherita pizza with kalamata olives. We are actually going there tonight for Margherita Monday. All night their individual size margherita pizza is only $5.
What is your favorite time of day? In my youth, I used to like to go to bed late and sleep in on a weekend. Lately, I have been waking up around 5 am and it is just beautiful out. The sun rises around 5:30, the sky is slightly pink and the air is clean and the temperature bearable- around the low 80’s. And the quiet…. I just love getting up at that hour. Over this past weekend, while Lynn still slept, I took off on my own with my camera for a couple of hours. And by the time I got back home it was only around 10:30. It was great.
Show us two of your favorites photographs? The photos can be from anytime in your life span. Explain why they are your favorite. The two black and white images above are two of my favorite early posts, even though I feel my photography and processing have improved since then. The wooden cabin was a nothing shot until I converted it to black and white and then realized how important lighting is. The image of the plane was used to inaugurate the first ever Monochromia post. Both shots were taken in one of my favorite places around here- Nelson NV.
Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to…. Well, Lynn and I are planning to take a short trip to Fontanarosa Italy next year (where my family comes from) and we have been doing all kinds of research online. So I have to get my passport soon.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? It was a quiet week but I really enjoy my solo weekend trip with my camera. Not because I was solo but because of the serenity so early in the morning. In two days I am driving down to San Diego to meet up with an old friend I haven’t seen in about 3 years and then Lynn will join me on Saturday.
