GiaViaDelBiscione_1866

The city as well as nature have interesting things to offer. We are happy as long as we do not have downtrodden preplanned trips, tours or cruises. This  little shop is on Gia Via Del Biscione in Lucca (Tuscany), Italy. The outside of this tile maker’s shop belies the inside. Beautiful handmade tile and ceramic (dishes) work for 20+ years. This must be next door to Paradise:) Sorry couldn’t get the door to stand out more.

THE FUN
looking for shade
jotting down the details
of sun and shade and texture
only to discover the windows’
tale-telling of sun’s delights

  2. All so lovely! I can never get a good picture of a deer — they always melt into the background. Maybe if I used an actual camera instead of a cheap phone, I’d have a chance. heh. Beautiful pictures, every one!

    1. where I live, you see deer very often in your own yard -so, many opportunities to take pics, as they stand still -we do, but can’t feed them, otherwise they become dependent on people for food.

  3. Nice shots! Thanks for showing pictures of two place where I’ve never been but want to go.

    PS. I haven’t been to Paris since Dec. 2014. I want to go there too. 🙂

  6. Hello Jesh, Your summer header is amazing. So beautiful and an unusual shot. Good eye for photos for sure
    I always enjoy all of your photos so much. The mountain cliff of stone with the vegitation is a great shot as well. The tree line looks like you are at the top.

    Happy Blue Monday. We just arrived home from vacation yesterday. Late catching up. Thank you for joining my blog party.
