Moon Rise over Palazzo Pubblico, Italy

A spring evening on the Piazza del Campo, Siena Italy’s front porch, with the moon rising over Palazzo Publico (City Hall) in this travel photo. Shaped like a giant clamshell this public space is the meet ’n’ greet place for locals – I enjoyed a regional favorite, Pan Forte Nero, and washed it down with Espresso at an outdoor café as a constant stream of humanity strolled by. Captured with a Nikon P80, and because of low light coupled with the lack of a tripod this image required sharpening.

Steve Smith inherited the wanderlust and has always needed to see what’s around the next corner. His college days were spent enjoying many memorable (and cheap) forays into Mexico sleeping under the stars. Today these excursions are typically press trips and hotels, but gathering unique experiences by getting to know places and people rather than observing as tourists is still their approach to travel. After numerous journeys to North/Latin/South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, he believes this is the true way to experience different cultures.
