Scripting a book trailer.

A novel contains reams of material. Distilling all that into a movie-style trailer took some major thought. I think I have what will work best, introducing the audience to the story and the major conflict.

Wide Angle View, Venice, Italy

My little Nikon 1 AW has served me well for the past 4 plus years. I have a wide angle lens on it most of the time and with good results.

St. Mark’s Square, Venice, Italy

St. Mark’s Square is that famous central gathering spot in Venice, the one you see on the travel shows. Here’s a look at it on a quiet evening with a lovely couple taking a photo:
