Just like I did for my Egypt trip last November (link) I put together an Apple iPhoto book of some of my favorite shots from my trip, and I’ve included some of those pages below (click on them for a much larger view). This time I’m trying Apple’s new Spiral-bound books (rather than the perfect-bound they’ve always offered in the past), and I’ll let you know how they come out once I get a final printed copy (later this week).

Of course, once again I did take lots of regular vacation photos and those are going into a separate iPhoto book for the family, and some of these photos will be included (but so will some of us posing in front of the leaning tower of Pisa and stuff like that).

The images below were all taken with either a Nikon D-60, (which I borrowed from my brother-in-law) or a Nikon D-5000 (which I bought while I was there—see yesterday’s post for why). I only used two lenses the entire trip: The 18-55mm VR Kit lens that came with the D5000 (and D60), and a 70-300mm f/4.5 – 5.6mm VR lens that I bought separately while I was there. Also, the Ferrari-for-a-day shots are here as well.

The images were all shot in JPEG mode (gasp!) and processed using Lightroom. I went to Photoshop a couple of times to remove some really distracting telephone lines and powerlines.
