The New York Times published a photo
and written essay by myself about a week
in a small Italian hilltop town, Panicale,
in Umbria: Quiet Reflections on the Enchanting
Italian Village of Panicale.
The piece is part of a weekly series in
the Travel section, The World Through A Lens.
Early on in the pandemic the Times was not able
to do normal assignments, so the paper put out
a call for existing photos accompanied by prose
specific to a location, event, or activity.
The images picked for publication - and a
few more - follow.
