Do you love photography, travel, and tech? This is the blog for you! My name is Raffaella, and this is my home to dive into my little obsessions. From time to time, food and the odd philosophical musing will indeed pop up.
When not exploring what I can do with my camera, lights, exploding balloons, or flaming flowers, you'll find me indulging in fancy cheeses, planning my Next Great Trip, or getting lost with the StumbleUpon button on my browser. I love my family, my pets, new lands, light, fireplaces, cheese, pasta, cheese, pasta (not a typo that those are there twice!), The Princess Bride, The Professional (Luc Besson's not Stallone's), books ("real" or Kindle).... I'll just stop there before I really start a run-away sentence.
I must give credit to Mom for starting me on the path to art & all things creative, Dad for my love of food & Italy, and to big 'Sis for helping me through lots of life's rough stuff with humor, wisdom, & empathy.
In addition to my musings here, I often post new work and experiments on my Flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/raffaluce
