Let me catch up with last year’s July for my 2016 Calendar before we hit the middle of this one.

I was amazed to discover only two locations and two days of shooting in my July folder. True, I didn’t go anywhere much, but even more it’s the heat that incapacitates me and sucks my energy. This summer has been quite the same.

All the photos except the featured one come from the same place, and it’s not a coincidence that it’s the same town as in my previous post: Orbetello on the lagoon. It’s close and I figure if I must shop, I might as well do it somewhere scenic. But to come home and chill with Bestia – that is truly priceless.

A word of warning: it’s not Thursday yet even though there are some doors attached. They have been featured for Norm’s Thursday Doors challenge already.

Clicking on any photo will pull you right in. Beware of the heat.

    Not much on my July schedule either. That green door really is stunning.

    In contrast, my month has been and continues to be jammed packed. I have to turn down things because there aren’t enough hours in the day or days in the week!! I must say though, it hasn’t been very hot, so it’s not painful to race around doing stuff 🙂

    I love “There’s always laundry o’clock somewhere in Italy.” There’s just something about laundry drying outside that makes me smile … and I imagine in that heat, it isn’t taking long to dry at all!!

    1. Oh Joanne, that’s true, it’s dry in a flash and that’s the only good thing about this heat. And that there are no mosquitoes. As it is, this calm was last July, this year it will be different because in a few days I’m going to Slovenia! Maybe I’ll find a Canadian holiday home there to capture for you. 😉 Thank you!

    I love the perspective shots between buildings. That green door is very intriguing. It was a good July!

    1. Thank you, Cheryl. This was just one day in the town, and one day at home. The rest of last July was spent gagging from the heat. 😀 And this year it’s even hotter and drier.

        I think ours is going to be a scorcher as well.

    1. Thank you, Farmgirl! Ohh, I hope you’re not suffering too much, your animals and crops and you. Please, can you see the previous post from this one and have a look at those sunflowers. Do they look ready to you? Or dried up prematurely? Thank you!

      1. It’s been in the 90 degree F. range this week…and HUMID! Luckily, the sheep can take refuge out of the sun inside our barn. And, there is a breeze through the windows for them, however, I’m sure they’re still hot. Our garden isn’t great this summer, because we had lots of rain in the spring and now it’s really dry. Hopefully, a fall garden will be more successful.
        Those sunflowers look like they may be at the end of their cycle. The heat probably sped up the process. I bet they were beautiful earlier in the season!

      2. Thank you! Oh yes, humidity plus heat is even worse. Here they are three weeks earlier: https://manjameximovie.wordpress.com/2017/06/17/rotating-suns/

        They weren’t looking at me again. 🙂 So speeding up the process is not bad in their case… It comes down to the same result, right?

        I wish you a lovely fall garden!

      3. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
        Hopefully, I’ll have some photos of my fall garden. Right now, my summer garden is looking a little like those spent sunflowers. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Joey. I’m gonna change summers now, moving north. 🙂 I expect mosquitoes there. Here is too dry.

        I hate the mosquitoes. I stood outside and chatted to my neighbor for no more than 10 minutes last night and I am so itchy!
