Travel Journal, Italy 2

I have really enjoyed capturing these little Italian moments, such pleasure to think of as I sit at my desk on a windswept October night. Cafe Tripoli with it's grand and gilded decor, traffic light tubs of ice cream and torta di fantasia to have with a little espresso, a scene not dissimilar to one that might be seen in The God Father. Piazza Settembre where I was accosted by a beggar handing out religious cards for small change.  Daily amusing finds in the local supermarket. The fishermen weaving their net baskets in the intensity of the Gallipolian sun in the way I imagine they have done for centuries filling their nets with the vast offerings of the Ioanian Sea.
