Photos of Brindisi
Sognatrice mentioned in her blog how everyone should take some photos of their local town. I thought it was a great idea because there were several things that I've been meaning to get a photo of with the new camera.
This first photo is the most important. It's of the curious little round church(temple?) hidden in the middle of town called the Tempio di San Giovanni al Sepolcro. It's been covered in scaffolding for months and now it's finally seeing the light of day again. A bonus is that with my new digital camera the lens goes to 18mm, which is wide enough to get the whole church (it's on a pretty big piazza but faces another building).
This next photo is the heart of the passeggiata. The street you see is pedestrian only and it's a good thing too because cars would be a major problem navigating it when it's filled with people every night, still an occasional taxi does try to use the road for some odd reason.
A door shot.
I don't want to show just the pretty things. This poor building is falling apart and it's in a great location in the center of town. I guess every town has a few buildings that need help.
And last, but not least, the main duomo of Brindisi. If you've seen photos where there are statues on the roof then you're looking at an old photo.
The next blog will be Valerio and Erika's wedding. I have a ton of photos to sift through and I'm "in ferie" so it might take a couple days.
