Eyes closed, I blindly chose ARCHITECTURE from the à la carte shooting menu for this week’s Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge and went in search of a worthy target with my iPhone 5.

In the Centro Storico (Historic Center) of Vicenza — in the Veneto region of Italy’s northeast — lies a tranquil greenbelt known as Parco Querini (Querini Park). Originally the private garden of the Palazzo Querini Capra, an early 19th century estate, the park threw open its gates to the public in the early 1970s and hasn’t looked back. The centerpiece of Parco Querini is a temple built by Antonio Piovene in 1820 that sits on a small island surrounded by water.

If you occasionally shoot with a smartphone or tablet, why not join in the phun and hone your craft. There’s a rotating Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge each and every Monday. For complete details, click on over to Sally’s Lens and Pens by Sally.

Until next Monday, let your phone be your lens.

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him in and out of 49 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 somewhere in the Veneto. You can also follow his dispatches from the cobblestone at TravelingBoy.com and ItalianNotebook.com.
