For me, nothing enhances landscape and cityscape photography better than a few clouds hovering above the scene.

And, I can’t think of a better way to join in the fun of the weekly Phoneograpy Challenge — this time around in BLACK-and-WHITE — than by showcasing a few phlights-of-phancy phrames that I captured on my iPhone 5.

GOING UP!

TPT 2014 Borsalino B&W

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 cobblestone streets 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 along the cobblestone via TravelingBoy.com.
