Friday Feature

Does this picture get your attention?? Not many comments about my Palermo trip and this will be the last. A little of the naughty and some of the nice. The above is a water fountain with a bit of art work. I had to maneuver a bit to get the photo.

While I was in one church we were in the middle of a wedding ceremony. It did not seem to matter to anyone that we were there. Later we were in the Garibaldi garden and two couples were being photographed with their wedding parties. It did seem strange to see three wedding couples on a Monday morning.

Later while on the bus we were shown a couple theaters including the Massimo Theater where scenes were filmed for The Godfather film. It is the third largest theater in Europe. Outside this theater was a guy dressed in Sicilian costume selling souvenirs.

I must have learned something snapping the theater picture as I don't see reflections in the second one. Both were taken from inside the bus.

I shall end with the naughty *Fontana delle Vergogne* (Fountain of the Shame). It stands between two churches and has sculptures of pagan statues, figures and animals evoking a suggestive atmosphere.

And finally here I am ....nothing suggestive here. I had a great time.

This is one city I would really love to see. I am amazed by the architecture and was facinated by the pictures at the four courners.
Love, C-co

Ciao Sharon,
grazie for sharing Palermo with us.

I regret not spending any time visiting the city, other than driving thru in the car. It does have beautiful architecture.

Beautiful fotos.
Buon weekend
