Photographers for Hire

Loads of Truffles!!

Corrie and I have both been featured in this month's San Pellegrino website, and it seems that the two of us were chosen based on nothing else but our photos which fit the monthly spotlights (Le Marche and Truffles), not based on finding us through our popular and lovable blog! In fact, it's very likely that the people who emailed us in regards to our photos didn't realize at all that they had chosen two great gals and great friends from Indiana who met and became friends during their study abroad in beautiful Macerata, adore Italy, and love both Le Marche AND truffles!

"Tartufo Researcher"

My photo of Fermo a city near Macerata in Le Marche region, was chosen for San Pellegrino's article, Le Marche is Different. And two (count 'em, TWO) of Corrie's photos were featured in the article Truffles, Tuscany's Treasure (you have to click on Acqua Panna to get there).

Check out our flickr accounts here (Jackie) and here (Corrie) for more photos!

Corrie was the one who mentioned that both of our photos made it on the water-people's site, as we met up today for an afternoon in Ancona, Le Marche's seaport regional capital. Corrie has been sick these past couple of days after her graduation (a result of Cyndi and my visit the day before? I hope not!) and has therefore missed valuable time enjoying Italy (she leaves for Ireland tomorrow--she's only had a week or so back in Parma!), so we did a whistlestop tour of Ancona, checking out the piazza, the cobblestone streets, some beautiful churches and courtyards, and, as a final hurrah, the view of the port at sunset from the cathedral church of San Ciriaco. Oh, and we ate really well too at the Trattoria Clarice, a little place along the main drag that makes excellent soups and pastas. Even though it was a quick visit, we all had a great time hanging out in beautiful Ancona, catching up on everything under the sun, and spending just another day in Italy.

Corrie, have fun in Dublin, and come back to Italia soon! I still can't believe you're leaving. It was great to see you this week, even if it wasn't much time! We miss you already, bella!

Congrats on having your photos featured at the website. That is so cool! As for the truffles, I've noticed that there are quite a few events going on this weekend but if the weather is sunny gorgeous like it was this w/e, we'll be out hiking somewhere. Too bad Mads isn't a truffle hunter, that pampered little furry thing. Renditi utile!!
