This months entry is from Michelle over at Bleeding Espresso. Michelle traveled to Sicily earlier this year and her blog photos were so lovely, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on whatever she was going to send me.
Michelle and I are what I would consider good blogging buddies. You may remember that I won her Bella Bag Contest, and that she won the My French Life contest. I live vicariously through her, because she lives in Italy.
Here is Michelle’s contribution to Travel Photo Friday. The descriptions follow the photos and are Michelle’s.
Located in the heart of Palermo in Piazza Pretoria, La Fontana della Vergogna, or the fountain of shame, is a work by Florentine sculptor, Francesco Camilliani and Michelangelo Naccherino completed in 1555 that features 16 nude representations of gods and goddesses.
The fountain gets its name because of the cold reception it got from Palermo’s citizens who didn’t appreciate coming out of church (the piazza is surrounded by them) and being greeted by many, many nether regions.
Here’s a creative way to get around Palermo–what I like to call a Sicilian taxi. I’m guessing it is probably not the most economical way to see the city, but hey, it’s a horse!! Whee!
Thank you Michelle. You always have a way of mixing facts with funnies!
My favorite is the taxi! How ‘about you? Which is your fav and why?
I am looking for YOUR travel photos. Email them over, along with your description and you can be featured in Travel Photo Friday!
See you September 5th for our next edition!
