A Few of My Favorite Things

Walking Ancient Streets
I love the atmosphere, the feel of the heavy stones beneath my feet, the narrow pathways with timeless rock-hewn buildings rising on either side providing intrigue. The fact that I can place my feet where others have tread two thousand years before me is an exciting thing. I like the way the light ducks in and shimmers on the stones. Exploring these streets brings a new discovery each time, no matter how many times I’ve walked those paths before.

Beautiful. I'm right there with you.

I also enjoy that on such streets, stilettos are shown for what they really are: death traps ;)

The light! I have never seen light like this... It just makes everything glow. said...

great photo Valerie. I'm with you.... there's no need to anything but walk and take it in.

Sognatrice - haha, you're so right! Can't help myself...every time I see one get her spike wedged between cobbles I laugh out loud.

Beatriz, how can one not be drawn to walk down that street toward the light?

Joe, Thanks. Walk and take it in, and maybe stop for a caffe along the way ;)
