Palermo

Ferry, Palermo Harbor

Ferry, Palermo Harbor

Palermo is a small city that gives the illusion of a big one because it is so densely populated.  It is a difficult place to drive a car, but all of Sicily is too.  Food here is very good and wine is cheap.

When I  arrived at the hotel in Palermo the clerk asked if I had relatives there.  It was my year round suntan which prompted the question despite my total lack of Italian ancestry.

    • These images are from Palermo, Sicily. There is a Europe menu button with Italy on the drop down, for more.

        • The last trip to Italy was in April of 2012. The images from Palermo were recently updated with new edits reflecting my current style.

  3. Wonderful! You should move your watermark either to the middle or make it more central because it can be easily cropped out. It’s a suggestion :)

    Black and white are still my favorite pictures, although color brings excitement to the senses, black and white allows us to see beyond…into the soul of the picture. AJM

  13. The foosball action scene is fantastic. Have you ever played it?

    I was going to tell you you must have strained your neck to get that Byzantine ceiling when I finally read: Byzantine Dizziness. ;-)

    • I played foosball many years ago as a teen. A close friend had a table.

  16. My great grandparents came to the USA from Cefalù. I went there when I was a little kid. This brought back memories. You are such an amazing artist. Lovers was my favorite in this collection.
