Attractive Italy

The photographs that you will see this time are urban views and interiors with a mixture of details and textures. The photographs were taken on a recent trip I had to Florence and Sicily.

There are endless views in Florence that can catch your eyes. Some of the ones that really captured my attention were a series of outdoor sculptures at the Boboli Gardens adjacent to the Pitti Palace. There are some sculptures in the gardens that are rich in textures and colors. The older ones, which are the ones carved in rock, show a series of colors that developed due to the minerals and oxides in the rock and some weathering of the rock. The other ones, the contemporary ones, are also very captivating. The details and the expressions just grab your vision and invite you to register them.

From Florence, you will also see some urban views. Those are images that strike you while you are walking around. I was lucky that the weather during those days was beautiful so I was able to register a sunset scene at the Ponte Vecchio. Beside the warm colors, what really got hold of me was the reflection of the buildings in the river. Reflections are one of those things that I have always been attracted to. Most of the time, I am looking for them so you will see them coming up in my photographs frequently.

The other set of photographs are from the northeastern part of Sicily. I was really impressed by how diverse that place is. For centuries and centuries, that region has been the bridge to Italy and you find that melting pot in the people and places in Sicily. What you see feels very intimate. Just walking through the market or visiting the Greek and Roman ruins or just walking through the little town hanging in the cliffs, gives you a very rich visual and personal world. I photographed the ones that caught my attention and stirred my emotions.

As before, I will give you a preview of the photographs in the video below and please see them in “My Photographs/Attractive Sicily”.

I hope you enjoy them

P.D. – “Pasta con la Sarde” at Granduca in Taormina is phenomenal.

    heya cool little web-site ya have there :) I apply the exact same design template on my own website though for whatever silly issue it looks to load more efficiently on your site despite the fact that this site seems to have significantly more multimedia. Have you been working with any individual plug ins or widgets which quicken it up? If you could quite possibly display the programs so that I might use these in my own web site I’d personally always be grateful – many thanks in advance :)
