13 Random Photos I've Taken Around Italy

Welcome to this week's Thursday Thirteen here on Profoundly Shallow!
This week, I'm featuring
13 Random Photos I've Taken Around Italy.

Pic #1
Window display in Florence 3
This was a display in a shop window in Firenze, back in 2006. Compelling, no?

Pic #2
Goods on display (*ahem*) - detail

This is a newsstand in Firenze, also in 2006. But trust me, they're still selling the same stuff.

Pic #3
Florence public restroom

This odd pic was taken in the restroom of the train station in Firenze.
This was not a camera trick, though - the light really was (is?) that color!

Pic #4
Oh! Sorry! (We don't care...)

On to Pisa... Where apparently no-one can read, whether in Italian or English...

Pic #5
Working Hard
Back in Reggio Emilia, we find some fellows working hard in the building across from/behind mine.
*This* is how you get rid of old marble tiling when refinishing an apartment, here.

Pic #6
Cyclist in Mantova
Mantova, Italy, 2006

Pic #7
Archway in Mantova
Archway in Mantova, Italy, 2006

Pic #8
Helipad in fog
Reggio Emilia Hospital Helipad in Fog, 2007

Pic #9
Anfiteatro at dusk
The Anfiteatro of Lucca, Italy, 2004.
I took this one on my honeymoon in March of 2004.

Pic #10
Napping in Milano
I took this in Milan Malpensa Airport in 2006, while my folks were checking in for their departing flight.
This woman's condition shows my state of mind at that point, too.

Pic #11
Arches of Duomo of Siena
Arches of the Duomo of Siena, Italy, 2006.

Pic #12
Italian countryside
We found this scene just outside Albinea, Italy in 2007.

Pic #13
morning in Baveno, Italy
View out our window in Baveno, Italy, 2006.
This is the view from the hotel where we've stayed in Baveno, Italy a couple of times.
I want to go back!


So, what's left, then?

Oh, right! Scroll down, y'all...

Keep going...

I don't blame you for wanting to go back to that hotel. It looks lovely.

I love the hospital building in the fog. Gorgeous.
And that hotel pic? VERY nice. You captured it perfectly.
These were so cool.

What great pictures! Thank you for giving me a tour if Italy. You didn't even need to include that last bit of eye cand... wait. *whacking head* what am I saying? Forget that last comment.
