Phoneographic Phlora and Phauna

iPhoneographic Challenge: Nature | ©Tom Palladio Images

City maintenance crews in my adopted hometown of Vicenza, Italy do a pretty good job of keeping the public parks, iconic buildings, pedestrian bridges and walkways dotted throughout the summertime with plenty of fresh color. It’s the least they can do for residents and tourists alike, if they want us to stay and/or return often.

Because today is another phantasic iPhoneography Monday, here’s some of the phlora and phauna I caught on my iPhone this morning during a stroll around the City of Palladio in search of NATURE, this week’s iPhoneography Challenge.

If you occasionally shoot with an iThingie, why not join in the fun and hone your craft. There’s a rotating iPhoneography Challenge each and every Monday. For details, visit Sally’s Lens and Pens by Sally.

Until next Monday, let your iThingie be your lens.

The Palladian Traveler's Borsalino over cobblestone | ©Tom Palladio Images



Written by The Palladian Traveler

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. Really like your images and clever title. Photography #3 is striking in its colors and composition (small one under text, top right). I enjoy so your journey through your adopted city. Happy Phoneography Monday.
