Il Postino

Have you seen that film Il Postino ? If not you must. It seems it was mainly filmed on the isle of Procida. Of course we went. An expensive and rather unexpected hydrofoil journey took us there where we hired ebikes and toured the small and surprisingly built up island. Looks great at the fishing places though . We had lunch in one such place and then visited a dodgy looking beach where some of the film was filmed. Oh we are such tarts!

Anyway, on the wee road to the beach we saw this fine cemetery - the design of which we don't see too much up here on our island as it would probably be blown away.

Scape of a man

This fine newspaper seller in Naples struck me as rather sophisticated. He kindly agreed that I could steal his likeness into my little camera. I'm glad of that.

Oof, you know when you are in a classy hotel when the view from your room is like this .......

Holidays eh?

I rather like holidays but goodness I've had it with the travelling these days. At Napoli airport I think.

Not a Marcel Duchamp exhibition but at the entrance to former church / art gallery in Naples housing a Caravaggio.

A nice exhibition that surprisingly held some wonderful contemporary work by Anish Kapoor and others.
