Exercises in defining Sicily
There is an old saying that a life well lived is when you succeed in defining who you are, every day, in every action or thought. And because that requires a lot of introspection, we begin to define our surroundings – always easier to look outwards…
But by doing that, we inevitably reduce it to one dimension - the point of view we have, the preconceptions that shape our understanding and the ability we have, given our level of experience and knowledge.
With these ponderings in mind, I hereby proceed along the erroneous road and attempt to define Sicily in photographs. Or more precisely, define Sicily through me as window.
Display of diversity
Sense of humor - Museo delle Marionette
Getting close to Etna - the different layers of getting to know the mighty giant
Gorgeous gorges of Alcantara
Pagan beauty - inside Ortigia's cathedral, a great example of pagan symbols assimilated by Christianity
Secret alleys - Scicli, a most charming small mountain town
Imposing sites - Agrigiento, southern Sicily
Sense of time passing, passeggiata in Ortigia
Colorful in every way
Scents and blossoms
Undeniable ability to take your breath away
