I became enamored with the gates of Volterra one day in early November when an approaching storm brought dark clouds; sunlight slashing through them with the furry of a war in the heavens. This eruption of nature’s powers etched the beauty of these ancient gates in my mind and viewfinder. I snapped away. In the corner I was standing in, Volterra had several gates, and the sky was changing as I snapped. Each frame was different. Take the Arco gate, Porta all’arco. It’s Etruscan, built in the...

Over at The Points Guy there have been several articles promoting train travel - and in particular travel travel public policy - and they're really odd. Amtrak isn’t as safe as air travel. And travelers shouldn’t be subsidized out of the pockets of non-travelers. The argument that “airlines get subsidies too” is an argument for fewer subsidies not an excuse for more. Train travel has a role to play in certain places but isn’t a panacea. Continue reading Very Odd Stories Pushing For Amtrak Subsi...
