Happy Black & White Sunday [2 for 1]
I’m being a little lazy and re-posting a photo you have seen before. But considering it is Sunday, I thought another Basilica was in order. This is Basilica di Sant'Antonio in Padova [Italy].
I took this in 1996 from the rooftop terrace of a friend’s apartment in Padova. I had been staying in the heart of Venezia [sigh!!!] for a few days and on the last night my friend took me to his hometown [Padova] to show me around.
Side tracking here, but the BEST BEST pasta I have EVER encountered. The restaurant decor was reminiscent of what you would find in a Chinese Restaurant in Sydney… very strange to say the least and had me a little concerned. But when the food came out… Mamma Mia… Dio Mio!! Heaven… YES Heaven!!! Who knew pasta is not pasta unless it is pasta from Northern Italy!!!!
Ok.. Back to the story.. Now St Antonio [St Anthony to us English speaking folk] is the Saint for Lost Causes. Of course that makes him my favourite and I would think my own personal Saint, given I am one who is prone to disasters and mishaps. So on the last day, just hours before heading out to Firenze and 2 weeks of language school, Paulo [my friend] took me to the Basilica for a tour.
They wouldn’t let me in!!! Inappropriately dressed!! Even St Antonio was not going to step in here and save the day. So, as a result, I have never seen inside this gorgeous basilica and will forever remember it just as it is below. If you want to see the colour version, you can pop over to this post [here]
Basilica di Sant'Antonio – Padova, Italia
As with all my travel photos, there was no fancy camera, just autofocus. This was taken at twilight, so without correct settings is quite grainy but yes I like it like that!
And yes that is a Full Moon you see there. Lucky Me!!
Venezia! Good Food, Great Friends and a Full Moon! I guess Saint Antonio was there after all!!
Thank you for joining me on this Black & White Sunday.
