Rediscovering Photography: Sacile, Italy

The other day, my husband and I gave one of the guys who reside in the same lodging facility as we do a ride to the city to rent a car. As he walked in to our room, he immediately gravitated towards my DSLR camera sitting on the counter and commented: "you're in the right place for this". 

I thought about his comment so hard, that I convinced my husband to explore a town not too far from us. I brought my DSLR and I am so thankful for that one comment. Before I show you the outcome, I just want to share with you how burnt out I have been since moving here. I have had no inspiration and I have been stuck in the same room for the majority of our short time here. The only times I leave is when I walk to the grocery store or run errands for my husband while he is at work. By running, I mean walking... and sometimes, getting soaked in the rain. It rains a lot here, which doesn't necessarily help with the "cabin fever". 

I hope you enjoy these photographs from a town called Sacile (sa-chee-le). It is one of the many municipalities in the Province of Pordenone (por-de-no-ne). I'm not really one to take portraits with people in it, unless they are statues of people, so these are mainly going to be pictures of "sights" within the municipality. We barely scratched the surface, but we hope you enjoy these. 

If you ever find yourself in northeastern Italy, there is a time in the afternoon where businesses and restaurants will close. They have a timeframe like Spain's "siesta" called "riposo" and if you're like me, this is a great time to get your shots (& no, not tequila ;)

These photographs were edited using Adobe Lightroom CC. I just downloaded the free trial and messed around with the following:
color: temperature, tint, and vibrance.
light: exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, blacks, and whites;
effects: clarity;
detail: sharpening and noise reductions;
and set the geometry to auto. 

What camera do you use for your pictures? Do you edit them? If yes, with what?
