SL-WEEK 43: Italian wetthings

Sylvain says “wedding” and I say together with the groom on his wedding day above: “I completely lost my focus”.

Here is first one image apiece from two weddings viewed from afar.

And now several from my only Italian wedding so far (as a guest!), held in Roma and in Ostia on the sandy beach. Mind the captions. I already posted photos from this wedding for the second week of Sylvain’s SL-WEEK challenge on the topic of Red.

But if you want to see really great stuff, check out Slovenian wedding photographer Samo Rovan who just won the title Photographer of the Year, awarded by the Wedding Photojournalist Association.

SL-WEEK 42: Tzars

In Slovenian, the word car is pronounced “tzar” and this is also what it means. Let’s look at some tzars on Italian streets (and in Piran).

Let’s start with an alien starship. Don’t you agree? It’s too smooth to be of this earth.

Then there is the second most beautiful, spotted in Piombino with an Elba beach in the ad. Povero 2CV, looks a little far away from home. In Italy they can be harsh towards French cars.

But some Italians use Citroens to get married.

In Piran, Slovenia, they are useful for reflecting the sunset…

…and for modelling.

This photo is especially for Sylvain because here are two red cars, from 1000 miglia race last year.

Two cars from Christmas in Roma.

Taken in Trastevere.

And now two from Roma last week. This one is a bit lost.

He, however, looks right at home. (Or better, Italians say it’s a she!)

Time for a trio of Fiats 500. Still immensely popular. First two from Roma.

Door photos are so abundant that I can use them for other challenges, hihi.

Some cars have been taken over by cat population.

A happy trio of neighbours.

And a city one in Capalbio.

But I still prefer our car. It takes us to amazing places.

And gives good perspective.

Even though…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Turquoise

After a ride in my favourite weather:

we came to the turquoise haven, known by the name of:

This is the town from where ferries will take you to the island of Elba. We didn’t go but we could see the appeal.

On the way back we stopped at Castiglione della Pescaia at the kind of beach that I could easily be avoiding all my living days. But they’ve got surfers.

And this is the scene from Piombino that forced me to save these photos for this week, specifically for Cee’s Fun Foto challenge. Long live 2 CV!
