Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes to Dan and Dotty Gigler from Pittsburgh, PA, USA

We had seen the boar “family” to the right of the lane while exiting BDV the previous early evening.  This time, they were on the olive grove side, as I said, having a little pre-dinner “nosh” among the trees. I didn’t want to frighten them away, nor did I want to invite them to come our way.  So I just slowed the car and as quietly as possible lined up the shot and waited for the guy in front to look my way.  When he did so, I got the picture and my emotion was, “OK, let’s get the hell out of here before they attack!”  In truth I’m sure they were being as cautious of us as we were of them, and I was a little surprised that they didn’t run away as I focused the camera. 

Every one of our trips to Borgo di Vagli has held an unexpected and memorable moment or event – this was the one for 2017. 

Each month one high-resolution photo will be chosen and circulated electronically; from now on the winner will fittingly be presented with a copy of the renowned American photographer Leonard Freed’s photo book IO AMO L’ITALIA. Freed’s exhibition Io amo l’Italia was held during 2012 in Milan, Rome and Turin and well supported by both critics and the general public. Leonard Freed once referred to his relationship with Italy as a “love story”.
