All twenty multilayered photos below were taken in the same month. Welcome to October.
Seeing that I’m desperately running out of blog space, again, I thought to combine the Weekly Photo Challenge and my Calendar 2016 and show you what October looks like around here. Especially since it is nothing if not layered.
My second blog didn’t last long: while the first blog was good for two years and three months, this one will barely reach one year and a half at the end of this year. And not much space remains. That’s why I hope at least to round up my Calendar 2016 on this blog: today October, two months to go. And then we will have to move again.
Last October was a busy month: my parents were here and we hopped from one Tuscan autumn sagra to another, visited Etruscan metropolis Vetulonia and its museum, and explored the beach – the featured photo is sand in extreme closeup – and the Orbetello lagoon. Flamingos arrived only after they left though, in the middle of the month. But to take good photos of them my camera would need just a little push.
Twenty photos today instead of my usual 12 then. I love it when I break the rules, even when they are self-imposed. Previous months are listed with links below the gallery, which you can enter by clicking on the first (or any other) photo and read more about the photos.
I had a chance to learn about the layers of my laptop when amore installed the new CPU. How all this can work at all is beyond me.
In Orvieto they added an extra DIY layer to this railway station bench.
The layers of this salad got mixed up a bit.
This lemon and ricotta cake was a big winner. Layers are added by depth of field.
OCTOBER: Mom’s way of layering: ikebana. I love it how she always makes one when she comes.
We are well beyond two years together but if you think each month doesn’t add a layer, you’re mistaken. 😀
Layers of housing in Rome’s Monteverde.
Autumn feast hopping: dressed in layers and separated by a different layer of paint (Monticello Amiata).
Autumn layers of Bagnolo, the last of the four feasts that day.
Another kind of layering, the beach.
An added layer of clouds. Monte Argentario peninsula in the back.
The extreme close-up of sand. Well done, camera! Much better than the eye can see.
I like the layers of this photo. Orbetello lagoon.
The flamingos flew in one day before I took this photo. They are still weary from travel. The one in flight shows the extraordinary colours of its underwing layers.
The layers of Tuscany, from Montorsaio.
The layers of home sunset.
The Etruscan museum of Vetulonia. Imagine the layers that still separate us from the yet undiscovered remains.
Speaking of layers… Vetulonia cemetery.
The extra cat layer, in Vetulonia.
Signing off, your Etruscan photo tomb raider. Note all the layers in the background.
