Some forgotten shoots of Salento..

These are taken in Nardò.
(WIKI:) This baroque town in the heart of the Salento subpeninsula of the heel of Italy extending southeast between the Ionian and Adriatic Sea, has landscapes considered to be among the most beautiful in Italy, baroque monuments, baroque churches and masserie (typical ancient fortified farmhouses). The coast has sandy and rocky sections, but allows some lovely views of the Natural Park of Portoselvaggio. Its territory includes 34 km of Ionian Sea coast with ancient fishermen villages: Santa Maria al Bagno, Santa Caterina and Santo Isidoro.




I included these shoots in my photography portfolio which I presented at my oral exam. I was so happy to recieve big compliments from the examination council as one of the professors was a great intender and art critique in general!
