Third and Final Curtain Call: Outside

This shows the garden and the outside of the house. I must confess that the very last photograph was actually staged; but as I didn’t take it perhaps that can be excused…

‘The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ…’

Over the past few of months I have found it increasingly difficult to come up with suitable posts for this blog. While it has been very useful to have a tight focus for most of the content I think I have now just about run out of sufficiently good home pictures to show. In addition the visual style of the pictures has been getting rather repetitive. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a different topic and style that works well enough to replace them.

So, sadly, I have decided it is time to put the blog gently to rest. However I will leave the account open in case at some future time some new possibilities emerge. I also hope to still look in occasionally to see what everyone is doing. I have greatly appreciated all your kind comments and the fascinating posts and pictures you have shared. It has been a very great pleasure to see, read (and learn from) them. Thank you!

Streetscape

P1190024ed

This picture was a kind gift from our friend Elisa di Saro. She was born in Sardinia but now lives in Treviso, near Venice. She painted it during a visit to a small town in Tuscany. I think it catches the colour and atmosphere of  a narrow Italian street very well- though this photograph (the best of several attempts) does not really do the colours justice.
