PRICELESS MEMORIES of our ESCAPESEEKER episode, entitled, "LA DOLCE VITA" captured by our ESCAPESEEKER photographer, Chad Buchanan

Bologna–As our “advance research” for the highly awaited filming of our premiere episode featuring Italy slowly comes to a close, we begin to review the thousands of images captured by our talented photographer, Chad Buchanan. Our entire team is moved by these images as our priceless memories are forever immortalized. Among my favorites is the one pictured above of the famous Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Chad and I awoke at 4:30 a.m.–we couldn’t have done it without the help of Hotel Bernini Palace staff who knew that we just couldn’t leave without capturing this image of the bridge as the sun began to cast its glow across the city of Florence. The two morning wake-up calls came exactly at the right time. Chad and I strategically positioned ourselves on another bridge that paralleled Ponte Vecchio–complete with the camera and tripod, and waited for the sun to rise. We waited and waited and waited for the morning cloud cover to subside. This shot was taken at approximately 7:16 a.m. on July 22nd. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. All I can add is, can you imagine how Italy’s beauty, spirit, passion~the soul of its people~ will only be even more magnified when we capture it on film–moving pictures that is–in spectacular high definition! We can’t wait to return in September as we compose our “Love Letter to Italy” entitled, LA DOLCE VITA.
