The Next Destination


You never know what you are going to find, as you wander around a city. This photo is from Turin, and is one that is hanging on my living room wall. At the time I was looking for photos I could do a "spot of red" processing to match my decor scheme, so that's what I saw. Today I look at it and find it more humorous... these stately buildings and this proud statue, looking down on the red plastic chairs and umbrella. What must his stone lordship think, to have these plastic things mucking up his piazza? The blend of modern and historic in one place provides plenty of opportunity for these types of photographs here in Europe.

We are off to visit a new destination, for the next week, and I will be absent here. We are travelling further south in Italy, to Naples and Sorrento. We plan to visit the Amalfi Coast, Capri, and hopefully, if it hasn't all collapsed yet, Pompeii. That is quite the scandal here, what is happening with the ruins in Pompeii.

I'll see you in a week or so, with photos from a new area. In the meantime, I have a couple of posts scheduled for you, including the Share Your View on Holiday Lights. Please come by and link in, I can't wait to come visit all of your photos when I get home. Have a great week!

  2. This is a lovely image. The man on the plinth looks as if he's staring right at the umbrella and chairs as if to say "where are all my admirers then?"
    Have a lovely trip and take lots of pics.

    Hope you get to see lots of new places and get lots of new photos. We are buried in snow with the threat of more on its way. Enjoy Miss K!

  8. Cool shot... but it sadly reminded me of a particularly devastating scene from Schindler's list.
