Al's trip to Italy
The pictures have all been taken with a brand new Sony "Cybershot" camera with a Carl Zeiss 2.8-5.4/7.9-23.7 lens. It is a 10.1 mega pixel with an ISP of 1600. Most places forbid flash cameras. None of the shots were made with a flash.
I took over 2400 pictures. So what you see will be less than 1/4 of them. Hopefully, the pages will document the trip and each experience in an understandable way
All the pictures are "thumbnails" just click on each to see a larger version
