Last year, when we returned from our first visit to Panicale and I started this blog, one of the favorite posts was Mirror Shots. I understand, because our family and friends want to see us in the photos...not just a bunch of photos of food, gnomes, and beautiful countryside. And this is a damn good way to get the both of us in a photo, and fun.
This year I went for the mirror shots a little, but must say that my darling Hubby was not as keen as I was to stop at every bloody mirror we came across. He was a really good sport about it last year, so I forgive him. I did manage to get a few good ones, though, and these are the best of the bunch for 2012.
(next year, I'm goin' for costumes.... Johnny will really hate it)

|I like this one in Piegaro...I like the stone walls.|
I do like getting the shots that show nifty background scenes

Last year, I took a shot of this mirror just outside of Panicale, near the park. But I wanted it again, only this time with the spring flush of leaves on the trees....
|The first shot I took, I didn't even notice the "ape" covered in brambles.|
A great shot of a great work vehicle!
|We both love walking over near La Mura, close to Panicale.|
The little chapel is so pretty.
Every once in a while, by accident, I'll get a passing car in the shot, but never a person...
The photo below is so cool because of the guy in the background. I didn't realize he was there until I looked at the finished product. I was just trying to get a good shot of Lago Trasimeno with Isola Polvese far back in the distance. The passing local adds a nice mysterious quality to this one.
|Yeah, but what was he thinking?|
