I had given up sweeping landscape photos... unless there was a child in the foreground... as they almost never do the scenery justice. But I'm going to start taking these photos again. Lots of them, and then tweak them with this trippy Tilt Shift application that I found out about from Captain Dumbass.
WOW. Check it out! This is a suburban Italian town nearby. Don't you feel like you're watching Mr. Roger's Neighborhood? I wish I had more shots it worked well with. The effect perfectly captures my sensation of life not being completely real. A tilt on reality if you will. Either that or it plays on my fear of becoming a giant.
