The last instalment in this round of "Italy Week'... Beautiful Taormina ... I'll move on to something else soon.. but first these extra shots of Taormina and the wonderful baroque architecture of the Church of San Giuseppe .. Some in the sepia-ish colours favoured this week ... and a few black & whites .. Although I couldn't resist maintaining the colour of the pink blossomed trees and the surprising hot pink.. or should I say 'Honeysuckle' hued pants of the stylish lady front and centre.. Do you think she knew back then 'Honeysuckle' would be the Pantone Colour for 2011? Probably not.. I think she has a style all her own and would look great no matter what she was wearing. The key to her style? Confidence!! or.. is it the sunglasses? haha
The church is situated on the Piazza Novo Aprile along the Corso Umberto I, and in some of these shots you can also see the clock tower .. Il Torre dell'Orologio... and the fabulous neon sign 'Wunderbar' .. This area reminds me of Italy in the 50's.. well at least in the movies.. I'd love a replica of that sign.. that .. and the 'Il Sogno' sign from Piazza Navona in Roma..
And more silliness .. Every time I look at that kid on the bike.. it reminds of a scene in While You Were Sleeping..
... I keep expecting him to take a tumble any minute ...
... haha.. I'm so mean! ...
A Happy Happy Week To All
I saw a blue butterfly this morning which is quite unusual around here.. normally we only get the black & white varieties.. so here's hoping it is a good omen for blue skies.. happy days..
