Straight Lines – Cee’s Foto Fun – June 30, 2014

This week Cee on her Foto Fun askes to look at straight lines, and who am I to deny her 😉 !

Yesterday we took a ferry boat trip down the lake from Riva del Garda to Malcesine which is in the provence of Verona.  I’d just read Cee Weekly Wrap-up and knew she was looking for straight lines, so I took these.

Cee’s Photo Challenge: Flight

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week Cee’s asking for flight.  Over the last three weeks as I went daily to Trento’s Santa Chiara Hospital, I had the opportunity to see a lot of mercy flights come in.

Trentino-Alto Adige being a mountainous region sometimes means it’s not easy to get an emergency case to the hospital in the conventional way.  Over the years, our region has decided to buy several helicopters to get to those people who need urgent care, whether because of an accident (and in the mountains there are not a few during the vacation season) or other “mundane” problems like a heart attack.  Oh, and it won’t cost you a fortune if you ever need this particular sort of assistance … it’s paid in full by the Region.

Go and have a look at Cee’s Photo Prompts…she’s got a lot on her plate ant lots of photographic tips as wall as prompts galore!

Shadows – April 27, 2014

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, we look at shadows, which is one of my favorite subjects!

Walking down the road
sun behind our backs I thought
“Oh a funny photo!”

shadows along the sidewalk
what a sunny day

April shower soon to fall
over Trento’s hills


The first photo I took last week…it was just so inviting.  The other two yesterday afternoon.  All of them were taken in Trento where I’ve been going daily to visit my husband in hospital.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – White

Last night after dinner I went out of a short walk to work off my dinner before sitting back in my easy chair and fall asleep read for a while.

I did so like last week’s WordPress photo challenge, that I decided to do a threes for Cee’s Foto Challenge!  Here he is…the old lion that guards the gates!

Poor lad, he’s getting rather weathered…the white marble is greying…

Hope you enjoyed it though!

100 Steps: Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge

It’s been very wet here lately and just having come out of the flu…and then getting a cold, I’ve more or less been blocked in the house…

Thanks to Cee’s Photo Challenge and my Nokia 202 telephone, I have a couple of photos to show you, from 100 steps around my house!

rain and snow You can’t really see it here, but it is snowing in this photo…the snow lasted perhaps about an hour, then it started raining again!

inside the houseI took this photo about 30 minutes into the snow…from a nice warm spot in the house!  You can see the roof in from of my house where the snow is collecting…

Thanks all for looking in!
