whistler in italy
shot this on a country road in the po valley, around ferrara, italy.
again, the original (below) isn't all that great but i wanted to capture the flatness of the area. it's a bit surreal there: flat, open, dusty farmland. not something you expect to see in italy. reminds me a bit of fresno and the central valley. and it is very much the same quiet, desolate and somewhat suffocating flatness which pervades luchino visconti's movie 'ossessione' (obsession). i saw that movie a few years ago, before ever going to that part of italy and somehow the landscape marked me.
