I should be looking forward in the direction of Hawaii but I was looking through the photo archives and found these sunset shots from Italy. We stopped in Vietri sul Mare, which is known mainly for ceramic production. There are dozens of little shops and factories with the most beautiful pieces in vibrant colors.  I would have loved to take one in every shape and size but they were molto caro (expensive) and I'm molto stingy.  

We decided to stop on our way back home to Naples from a day of sightseeing in Paestum with my mom. It was a nice break during the trip. We ended up searching for washed up ceramic bits and sea glass. The evening was brisk, the water was cold and the mood was molto italiano (very Italian)!

  1. Beautiful. Maybe if we stay in the Navy we'll end up there one day. Your photos make me want that. And your new blog look is great. How did you learn how to customize your blog so nicely? Book, website, training?

  8. These are beautiful. If I close my eyes, I'm there and it's just as you've captured it. :)

    My dad lived in Naples for several years as a kid while my grandfather served in the Navy. We are hoping to go back next year to visit and do the tourist thing.
    Thanks for sharing these!

  10. Oh wow! I got goosebumps looking at these photos! I don't know why... they just stirred something inside. What a gorgeous feel... almost as if I'm there. And the street photography - oh my! That is right up my alley (although I never have a chance to photograph something so beautiful). That is probably my favorite type of photography. Gorgeous images!!
