5th Place – Toned Colour (Photography)
TOP 10 – Sicilia (Sicily) Challenge

Featured on the RedBubble Homepage!

Shot in Catania, Sicilia (Italia)…….my home.

Sicilia, where not much is lost or forgotten.
Sicilia, insolent, pessimistic & nostalgic.
Sicilia, where wild herbs grow in fields and golden wheat covers the land.
Sicilia, where the white sky meets the yellow earth.
Sicilia, where the goddess of the sea crashes waves and blows winds to remind us that she is an island.
Sicilia, where history seems not that long ago.
Sicilia, that smells like fennel, wild thyme and sweet oranges.
Sicilia, where the sacred and the profane are the same.
Sicilia, silent and pathless, where illusion is an ingredient for Life.
Sicilia, where memories are hidden in laneways and under sun-bleached stones.
Sicilia, where progression moves in a circle.
Sicilia, with a vicious and suffocating heat.
Sicilia, with a damning and bitter cold, when the goddess Demeter suspends the sun each year.
Sicilia, the colours of lemon & orange trees; dark green olives; purple braided garlic; rich red plums; and the blackest of cherries.
Sicilia, a land of grief and rapture.
Sicilia, deeply in love with herself.

    Magnificent! Wonderful writing and contrast in the two arts!

  • thank you my love!! I have been missing home A LOT lately…….and yesterday, everytime I thought about it I would burst into tears! My husband couldn’t take it anymore, so he told me to do something constructive and “create” with what I was feeling…….so I did!! I had been to a bookstore earlier that morning, and without realising until I got home, all the books that I bought had something to do with Sicily……..so as I started reading the words and the images started flowing……..:) :) :)
