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
