Street food is great but most of the little shops I visit have the food in the display cart and then they microwave it! Ewwww, pasta does not microwave very well! Not that the food is bad but one part is cold so you eat away only to burn your mouth on the insides. I think we should ban microwaves! But I did find a new place that is famous called Narbone and why they are famous is because (while you really don’t tip here) if you leave your money on the table they use it to feed those that can’t afford to pay on their own. The line is always long so I have to hurry and eat before my afternoon classes. This week I also went to another Soccer game. This one was a playoff in the Europa league and we won in stoppage time. I thought College games were crazy; they have nothing on soccer.
SACI Class Update
Black & White Photography
Had our first critique here and Sam Olfano, Niko Kallianiotis, and Pete Nardone (back at Marywood) can not complain at all. During this critique we had people show up after 5 plus weeks here with zero prints. It was so crazy it was comical. They gave a great explanation of their project but just forgot to take photographs. Wow. Who ever thought that photographers had to take pictures? Crazy! But I had some good shots, still really searching for inspiration for my final project.
Finished up my Time project. We are supposed to have the critique for it this week. We will see how it goes.
Baroque and Italian Art History
Field Trip to Piazza Pitti, again! This place is so huge. Saw some more Caravaggio and Carracci paintings. I think we have one more trip there.
Editing, editing and more editing!
Had my one on one critique with my professor so we narrowed down what kind of prints I should take for my River Arno project.
Would write some more but my cold has finally caught up to me from the states!
