Travel evidence - Italy

I owned a digital camera for a brief time last year and had fun documenting my activities in and around Edinburgh. But then one night I got ludicrously drunk and the camera was one of several casualties (deservedly, I felt).

I didn't feel the need to buy a new camera to document my travels, mainly because there are already so many photos of the places I'm going to that are a lot prettier than any I would be capable of taking. Still, it's nice to have a few mementos of the things I've done and the people I've met, and it's always satisfying to use other peoples' resources, isn't it?

So here are some other peoples' photos to prove I was in Italy. It's taken a while just to get these few, so hopefully more can be added in the future (answer my emails, Pompeii people).

Note: Above photo may not be genuine.

  1. You're alive - and not replaced a computer simulation as I occasionally suspected - I'm taking the photos as proof. Looks fun - especially the top picture, hehe.

  2. It's harder than I thought to make composite photos look obviously forged - even though I deliberately chose pictures with different lighting levels and impossible shadows, it looked almost convincing before I made the background black and white.

    Maybe there's a career for me in Photoshopped celebrity porn? Not that I know what that is.

  3. I want to know what the sign in the Venice picture says. It looks like 'no people allowed'.

  4. Something less exciting like 'no standing,' but I enjoyed how they list it in four languages even though 'No' is spelled the same in Italian and English so surely one would have sufficed?
