by Ken Cheung, Toronto, Canada

Ascoli Piceno wedding

“The bride and groom on the main square in Ascoli Piceno,  Le Marche. Friends celebrate by throwing their jackets up in the air – a tradition not known in Denmark!”
by Steffen Spangsberg Nielsen, Silkeborg, Denmark


Assisi, Italy

“This is a photo taken in the fields outside Assisi when we were returning from our daughter’s singing recital at sunset. The simplicity of the farmer walking to tend his crop with a scythe in his hand reminded me of how simple life can still be even in this extremely busy techno world. This photo made me feel that it was a long way from home for us and our school choir (MLC, Western Australia) in so many ways.”
by Yvonne Zissiadis, Australia
