And.. the splendor of the Italian Riveria ... I LOVE ITALY .. but you knew that and I loved Portofino.. playground to the rich and famous.. and on this August day in 1996 .. playground to the budget conscious backpacker.. 'Me'. Although even on a budget.. one is able to appreciate the faded glory of palazzos and terraces that grace this area of Italy... There is still an earthy presence as one finds in the architecture and streets of Roma.. but also an air of lightness .. playfulness in the brightly coloured buildings .. pastels and ombre hues dancing in the summer haze and reflected blues from the azure sea lapping at the walkways.. ... I LOVE ITALY ..
Now I've posted about my time in Portofino and Santa Margherita before, so I won't bore you with these details again.. but present you with a re-run of some of my snapshots. This time in the blueish, sepia-ish tones of my Roma travel post [here]. I'm a little addicted to these colourways at present.. but being fickle, I'll probably move on to another colour love soon.
Hopefully you are not getting too bored with my Italy posts?
Or rather my travel snapshots....As I'll have another Italy post for you soon..
Not out of my system yet.. so some shots of Taormina that I haven't posted before ..
Thanks everyone for the emails and comments re the devastating floods up north
My heart aches for those struggling with this
