Markthal, the Queen of Markets

Markthal

Varenna and Lake Como

Like a breeze  Or sunbeam over your domain I passed In motion without pause But ye have left your beauty with me A serene accord of forms and colors Passive yet endowed In their submissiveness with power as sweet And gracious, almost I dare to say  As virtue is, or goodness; sweet as love William Wordworth, Excerpt from The Prelude, Lake of Como
    Lake Como

Merry Christmas 2016

"Have yourself a merry little Christmas  Let your heart be light  From now on, our troubles will be out of sight Have yourself a merry little Christmas now." Excerpt from Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

Dubrovnik in the off-season

"Those who seek paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik." George Bernard Shaw
    Adriatic Sea
The drive along the coastline from Čilipi International airport to Dubrovnik was every bit as enchanting. It was the magical hour with the sun calling it a day. I was watching the sunset from the bus window and decided to capture this welcoming introduction to the walled town, not quite sure how it would turn out. But I need not have worried, this picture speaks a thousand words.
