My reentry into real life after our trip to Italy has been a bit on the busy side, so instead of driving myself nuts trying to find new things to shoot, I thought I would look at my pics from our recent trip there to see if I could find good entries for this week’s Scavenger Hunt. Since I took over 1,000 photos, you wouldn’t think that would be much of a challenge and I will admit, there were entries that jumped out at me immediately for each prompt: Orange or Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Faceless Portrait, View from the Top, Cozy and Stacked. Here are my entries:
Orange for Breast Cancer Awareness Month: or orange peel for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Faceless Portrait: These are our friends Sean and Ellen, two of the eight of us who got together and rented a villa in Italy. This villa called Villa Miragalli was just beautiful. Here, Sean is standing at the edge of the infinity pool looking out over the Tyrrhenian Sea and Ellen is just enjoying the view. I didn’t realize when I took the photo that the light at that moment would make the color of the pool reflect onto Sean’s back. That’s an odd effect.
View from the Top: One of the views from our villa. This looks out toward Praiano, Italy, which you can see on the furthest peninsula.
Cozy: That’s what I would call the boats they put you in to take you into the Blue Grotto in Capri. I knew I couldn’t get in and out of the boat so I stayed behind but took this picture of Greg (far right), our friend Fred, the fellow who rowed them into the grotto and a young English woman whose mother also stayed behind.
Stacked: This is Positano, Italy. It is a truly vertical city and that gives the impression that these buildings are stacked on top of one another. In reality, there are roads that run through the layers of buildings there. Isn’t it beautiful!
