Weekend

It’s been raining a lot out here but this little pink rose caught my attention. Inspite of the cold, wind and rain… it can still bloom giving me joy in these gloomy, cold, rainy and windy days of Autumn.

Wishing you all a pleasant and restful weekend!

It is not about telling someone “I am sorry!” It is what you do to show you are sorry. AFS

Parco Villa Margherita, Treviso,Italy

A sunny afternoon…the colors of autumn and most of all,  the chance to take pictures with my Nikon 5200.  Although there are a lot of places where I could practice taking pictures with my DLSR, I decided to go to this public park  because… It’s near to where I live and I was certain to find interesting subjects for my photography studies.

This tree was so tall that I thought…I would just be contented  to take a picture of its reflection in the pond near it.

A step at a time and someday soon I’ll be able to finally express through my pictures what I see and feel.

Wishing everyone  pleasant and fruitful days!!!

A wheel and a Lake

Lake Landro, Val Landro, Dobbiaco, Italy

This wheel is part of the cableway which brought provisions from Lake Landro to Mt. Piana for the soldiers during the First World War – Italy – Austria.

It is in moments like visiting such an amazing Lake and in knowing about its role during the First World War which makes me understand the value of peace and freedom.

Good day to all!

Pompei, Naples, Italy

I think the best way to visit Naples is having somebody from the place to tour you around the city. I didn’t waste our time and though it was just a day trip, we were able to see some important landmarks of the city. Like the churches of San Gennaro, Santa Filomena, piazzale Largo San Martino e most of all…to finally visit the city of Pompei. I was not really prepared to see a city destroyed by a violent eruption of a volcano but what I saw left me with mixed emotions.

The following pictures are from the archeological site of the ancient Roman city of Pompei:

Oh! Aside from the breathtaking view of Naples, the coastline and Mt. Vesuvio from “Piazzale Largo San Martino, you can also find shops where you can buy handmade “Cameos”. Honestly, I am quiet worried for all those who are living very near the volcano!

Traveling is really a very good way to learn deeper about places and its people. Often, prejudiced opinions written or said has the power to discourage anyone but surely, for me, one of the best ways to understand and see reality is experiencing or seeing it with my own eyes, not through the eyes or experiences of someone else.
