My Phoneographic Hood

Here are a handful of shots, starting with the view right outside my window to around the Centro Storico (Historical Center) of Vicenza, Italy. Some of these frames were taken with an iPhone 5.

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


  1. Wow, I am most definitely jealous of your ‘hood’. Beautiful photos too, but hey, every blink of the eye is beautiful in Italy.


  2. I’m always impressed by the amount of very old architecture that has survived in the centre of Italian cities. So many old buildings and works of public art. Much of London long since disappeared under the ‘Progress’ legion 😦 Very nice shots – love the Basilica in particular.
