New crop oranges E PL-2

As a very ancient but modern marketing ploy, they are picked and sold with some of their leaves still on them. They look great. These are not very large as the ones later on in the winter but their aroma and taste are superb.

It's always beautiful. Castellammare del Golfo

It's almost November the tourists are seen walking in shorts and shirt sleeves. The oleanders are in bloom and the fields have become green again. This photo, taken countless times is one that I never tire of taking.

Sicilian Horses E PL-2

These horses are not in Colorado or in any of the western states. They are in Sicily. My friend, Dr. Borruso, besides his love for cardiology, has a passion for horses. This is his small "ranch." The horses are very friendly and very well attended.

Macedonia / E PL-2

This is a typical Italian fruit salad. I do not know the origins of the name. It is, when made with really fresh fruits, a delicious end to a meal. Of course, an espresso will the required

to complement this dessert.

That old S1 pro

Nothing has really ever came close to the image quality of the Fuji S1 pro. It only had 3.4 mega pixels and the body was ridiculous. The images were another story. Wonderful, out of the camera.

Pasta con l'aglio / E PL-2

Having just arrived from Italy, I was hungry for some comfort food. Nothing could be simpler. Tomatoes, garlic and basil. All chopped in extra virgin olive oil and tossed raw on hot linguini. Nice.
