messina 16 123

Taormina, the Pearl of Sicily, prettily winding old streets sacrificed on the altar of mass tourism, with crazily expensive shops that simple mortals like you and me cannot afford, all posh, where film stars go and yet so real and so dear to me. It was my second time there. This time we had fewer tourists milling around, it was about to rain and the town showed me another of its faces. A more genuine one.

As you can see I don’t have the best material. As my camera is dying I can’t really choose based on the subject but the varying  happenstance of quality. Most inconvenient but buying a new camera is totally on my to-do list.
