As I mentioned on my former post, yesterday I went walking with the city of Arco. This is a yearly event. For a chosen charity each year people gather together to either walk (a five and a half kilometre itinerary) or run (a twelve kilometre itinerary) together. Here are a couple of photos of the event.

And now for today’s prompt:
A Spring Morning
And here’s my example:

For Pixelventures macro…I’m submitting two photos:
The first is a genista or broom plant:
your lovely yellow blooms
speak of summer
This second photo is nothing more than the common clover flower ,,, but I jazzed it up a little:
you made fantastic rice
for my doll’s dinner

For this weeks Photo Challenge…Abandoned. There are more ways than one to interpret abandoned…which occurred to me when I was looking at some photos of a graduation party!
Hope you caught the joyful abandonment of these photos!
For Where’s my Backpack today, I thought I’s show you some photos I took during a trip to Rome a couple of summers ago with my family.
It was a hot day in August, we went to Albano, a small town in the Castelli Romani to celebrate two of my son’s birthdays and took advantage of being near Rome to see the Colosseum.
Here are just a few of the shots I took on the inside of the Colosseum…where the gladiators, slaves and wild animals awaited their turn to be called to entertain the crowds:
Ciao! See you soon!

This post was written for Ese’s Shoot and Quote…and I hope you’ll come and have some Up soup with me 😉
Have a great week!
Hello…it’s Wednesday, and that’s all I’ve go to say!
Have a great day!
For Sunday Stills this week, the question is: What makes you happy?
There are of course many things that makes me happy, but one of the greatest things is:
Have a great week folks!
For this weeks DP Photo Challenge: IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT FEATURES A LIGHT SOURCE.
Ok, up ’til now, I’ve been showing you artificial light sources. I have to admit, that they don’t really excite me very much. It’s cool to take a photo of a Christmas tree from weird angles, but when I think of the source of light, living between two mountains makes me think of the sun.
In this period of the year, we don’t get full sun until about 10:30 – 11:00. On the 21st, it’ll be closer to 12:00. But then…it starts tipping the mountain earlier and earlier. To me, the greatest moment of the year is when I see the sun growing stronger and topping the mountain earlier.
Sun behind the mountain
Here are a few photos that I just prepared for this occasion called, Let There Be Light!
And then it happens…the sun tops the mountain, I used my sunglasses to cut down a little of the glare…
Sun tops mountain
Thanks for looking in…tomorrow I’ll look at the sun on the lake ;-). Ciao!
