“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ~ Ansel Adams (Photo from personal archive ~ Naples seen from the top of Mount Vesuvius on a winter day.

It was a beautiful evening. As they walked, Carolina looked at the Vesuvius. She was always amazed at the sight of the Vesuvius.
‘It’s breath-taking, isn’t it? Something so powerful, so big and it seems so close. It looks as if He could swallow the whole city. I feel so small and unimportant looking at him.’
Extract from “Loveandpizza.it“, by Daniela Pesconi-Arthur

The lovely flowers embarrass me,
They make me regret I am not a bee –
~Emily Dickinson, 1864
