From Bolognano to Villafranca via the Brennero Highway and back … a day trip outside of my mountains to the flat Padano valley.  I always find that visiting the Padano valley makes me appreciate my mountains so very much when I return.  Though I had fun on my one day vacation, this time was no different from the rest.  As soon as I began to see the first signs of the mountains I sighed with contentment!

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – June 16, 2014

Going to a Comic’s Fest can be fun!

I ran into lots of crazy characters and some really great costumes as well as meeting artists and listening to some great music.

It was an all around fun morning and afternoon … but there was this one guy who really stopped me short.  I should have taken more photos of him and he was certainly willing to pose for them but get shy taking strangers photos … so these two will have to do me.  As i said he posed and if he hadn’t blinked he would have been even more regal and a little less forbidding…

and by the way that was no wig folks … I wondered how he looked during a work day.

Looking Up! June 16, 2014

Yesterday I went to Villafranca (near Verona in Italy) for a comic fest.  Villafranca is now more famous for its airport than for anything else, but in fact the enter of there is a medieval fortification, Scaligero Castle, this is where the fest was held in the great grassy court yard.

We stood in line waiting to buy our tickets inside the dark high walled entrance …

Planes coming and going!

Planes coming and going!

The sun didn’t make much of an appearance … but I had fun anyway and tried to capture at least on of the planes that slowly came across the horizon for a landing.  I was surprised at how silent they were.  There were moments when the planes just seemed to hang in the air, as though they were posing.

Today I’m adding this to the ‘Travel with Intent‘ up and down prompts and to Bastet’s Pixelventures June 10, 2014.  Ciao for now!  Bastet!
