A street in Montalcino, Tuscany
This town is where the famous Brunello wine is made. We had a fantastic meal here!

Pisa postcard
Even though it's a postcard-like picture, the Duomo and Leaning Tower of Pisa are truly impressive. Notice the size of people standing next to them...

How do I manage my photos
I'm sure there are many approaches being used, but I thought some may profit from knowing this approach, which uses very little proprietary software and a quite inexpensive online backup solution (finally)!
I am a Mac user, so some aspects would have to be adapted for a Windows user.
I have three external drives, one on the Thunderbolt port, one one Frewire port and one on the USB.
The usb is currently a 2T portable 2.5" Toshiba drive (used also for traveling as it is very small and light); the Thunderbolt is a 3.5" 2T Seagate drive, and the Firewire is a plug-in bay (hot swappable removable drive) which currently holds a 4T Hitachi drive. The 3.5"  are all 7200 rpm for speed.
In addition, I have started using Backblaze (www.backblaze.com) for backup, which costs $5/month for unlimited backup for one machine. The initial upload of all my stuff (photos and other things) took a while to complete, but now it backups up anything new I add quite fast.
I actually use the Finder to manage my photos, I know its not ideal but has been working for me.
When I come back from a shoot I open a new folder with a suitable name (typically, place and date) on my main drive, where I have a Photos directory.
Within the folder (call it xxx), I open a "processed xxx"  (sub)folder, to which I copy the photos I will process.
Since I have a rather small flash HD as my main drive, I keep only the most recent photos in their respective folders. Once I finished processing all photos, I just leave the copy in the external folders, and use the Thunderbolt drive as secondary external HD, as it's very fast.
To backup, I use Carbon Copy Cloner, which is essentially a friendly interface to rsync (for those who know Unix). I copied the main Photos folder initially to each of the external drives, and now  I have scheduled nightly incremental backups of the Photos folder to copies in each o of the external devices.

Story
Tagline
I am an avid amateur photographer. I'm also a computer science professor at PUC, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Introduction
 I've been an avid amateur photographer for the past 35 years. I like photographing things around me that go unnoticed by most people, sometimes making interesting abstractions. I like minimalism, reflections, and geometric patterns, especially spirals. I love light and shadow play.
And I enjoy doing post-processing in PS, which I see as the modern day darkroom.
Most of my work is related to travel photography.

I went there on a rainy Thursday afternoon, there were only two other tables being served. The menu has unusual dishes prepared with fresh local ingredients. I had great eggplant ravioloni you could tell had been freshly handmade, with delicate dough. My secondo was a super soft pork filet
