When we booked our rental condo in Siena, Italy in the historic zone, we didn't know that cars were not permitted to drive within the zone. We found a place to temporarily park our rental vehicles outside the historic walls and fortunately found a wheeled cart to help us transport all our luggage to the condo. I would jokingly add, the baggage for my husband and brother in law consists of their backpacks...the wives however, are a bit more high maintenance!
Trieste is a small city in the north-east Italy. It's been a crossroad mostly because of his port and the fact of being a border place, where common people was used to speak italian, german, slovene and croatian. A countryside at the centre of two world wars with millions of dead. A city whose people has been defeated by nationalisms, the closing of factories and pollution. This shot: march 15th,2019, Fridays For Future. People alive!
This photo was taken on a motorcycle tour through the Italian Alps. Normally, the "Drei Zinnen" (it. Tre Cime di Lavaredo) should be seen here. A famous rock formation with the highest altitute level of 2999m. Unfortunately, these were covered by dense clouds. Which did not give way even after several hours. Nevertheless, I felt this high mountain scenery as very beautiful. And decided to take this picture. I think it illustrates very well the smallness of man in the face of the vast nature.
Perché.. perché.. perché..
Mi sa che voi sulla terra sprechiate troppo tempo a porvi troppi perché..
D'inverno non vedete l'ora che arrivi l'estate, poi d'estate avete paura che ritorni l'inverno..
Per questo non vi stancate mai di viaggiare, di rincorrere il posto dove non siete: dove è sempre estate.
Non dev'essere un bel lavoro…

I was visiting Sicily in September 2019 and every day I could see MT Etna from the villa where I was staying. On one of last days there we drove up to base camp about halfway up Etna and walked around some dormant craters. It was powerful experience.
When traveling around the world was'nt forbidden due to Covid-19 my partner and I went to the beautiful city of Rome. This picture was taken at the Colosseum. This theater was build in the first century and was the largest theater of the Roman Empire. It is listed as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
Toen er nog geen Covid-19 pandemie was en het nog mogelijk was om over de wereld te reizen zijn mijn man en ik een paar dagen naar het prachtige Rome geweest. Deze foto is gemaakt bij het Colosseum. Dit amfitheater werd gebouwd in de 1e eeuw na Christus en was het grootste theater van het Romijnse Rijk. Het staat bekend als één van de zeven wereldwonderen.
… Avant Lévi-Strauss, bien peu d’anthropologues s’étaient intéressés à la cuisine. Lui n’aura de cesse de rappeler qu’elle constitue une forme d’activité humaine véritablement universelle : pas plus qu’il n’existe de société sans langage, il n’en existe aucune qui d’une façon ou d’une autre ne fasse cuire certains au moins de ses aliments.
When someone lectures you about copyright, valuing your work, not giving it away for free, competitions are worthless, blah, blah, blah...we are only on this planet once, so have a go, get your work out there and don't be a prisoner to your hard drive. If someone enjoys your work - savour that moment - that is the legacy to enjoy.
A few years ago, on a holiday to Bergamo, Italy, the local tourist board hosted a photo competition and with mage I was lucky enough to win a holiday for two, the following year. The following year, I entered again and my image won a wristwatch.
It's easy to get sniffy about your copyrighted photo rights, but truth is my legacy is not to be a rich, celebrity in-demand photographer but I can rightfully claim (with tongue in cheek) to be an international award winning photographer
I've dined out on that title a few times, let me tell you!):-
Questa fotografia nella versione a colori riproduce Burlamacco e Ondina che sorridono."Sorrisi" perchè in questa foto ho voluto isolare i visi dei due personaggi per rendere più incisivo il loro sorriso. Burlamacco e Ondina sono le mascotte ufficiali del Carnevale di Viareggio ma qui ospiti del Carnevale di Gambettola.
Here we see Burlamacco and Ondina smiling. "Smiles" because in this photo I wanted to isolate the faces of the two characters to bring the attention to their smile. Burlamacco and Ondina have been the official mascots of the Viareggio Carnival since 1930. In this photo they are the guests of the Gambettola Carnival.
What a year (2021)!
A lot of walking and ruminating.
This is a fitting end and tribute to all of that.
Grateful for ability and health to be able to walk around my habitual spaces and a bit beyond.
The best to all for the coming year. Peace!
Italy was such a beautiful, happy country when we visited last summer. Now it is devastated by the COVID-19 outbreak. I have been posting some photos from our Italy trip for the past few days and I will be doing the same over the next few days as a reminder of those happy times. In particular, I'm posting photos of people going about their normal life. The newspapers are full of photos of the deserted streets. I'm trying to show them filled with people.
In 2005 I went to the Biennale in Venice. A large art exhibition. Although not real art, I really liked this poster.
I still had to learn everything about photography. I had a small compact Nikon camera with me and that didn't yield very nice pictures. Much moved, because it was too dark in the halls.
This photo is not perfect, but it does bring back some nice memories.
Murder or Suicide !? the question is related to the fact that in these days Venice has been submerged by the sea and that in the not too distant future it could be definitively submerged. The authorities and the populace have known of this danger for 40 years and so far little has been done on the defense of Venice, but much corruption and illicit gains by political and economic power.
Nel 1937 lavori di ristrutturazione. Dopo la seconda guerra molti scelsero l’emigrazione, la vita di operaio. L’allevamento dei bovini fu sempre più abbandonato con la conseguenza che il bosco spontaneo lentamente riconquistò i pascoli ed i prati erbosi sul monte di Ragogna. I colpi più duri per le latterie sociali e turnarie e per la loro produzione artigianale, vennero dal susseguirsi delle direttive europee per l’agricoltura, sempre più orientate alla grande produzione. Tutti fummo
Le 24 août 79, une violente éruption du Vésuve provoque l'enfouissement de la riche cité romaine de Pompéi sous une pluie de cendres volcaniques. La chute des cendres continue jusqu'au 27 août.
Les fouilles du xvIIIe siècle ont permis d'exhumer une cité florissante, dans un état de conservation inespéré. Lors de cette éruption, Pompéi comptait 25 000 habitants.
