Ear of Dionysius

Taken during our second visit to Sicily to visit family where we toured around Siracusa and other towns.

From Wikipedia…

“The Ear of Dionysius (Italian: Orecchio di Dionisio) is a limestone cave carved out of the Temenites hill in the city of Syracuse, on the island of Sicily in Italy. Its name comes from its similarity in shape to the human ear.

The name of the cave was coined in 1586 by the painter Caravaggio. It refers to the tyrant Dionysius I of Syracuse. According to legend (possibly one created by Caravaggio), Dionysius used the cave as a prison for political dissidents, and by means of the perfect acoustics eavesdropped on the plans and secrets of his captives.” — Wikipedia

We pulled off the street for a second to quickly grab this photo, which wasn’t easy as the street here is quite narrow. This lower piazza is often used for wedding photos and I can totally understand why. Watercolor created using @waterlogue iPhone app

Midnight in Acireale 2 

More black and white imagery from our summer evening walk through Acireale, Sicily, with family. The striking contrast of light and dark caught my eye every way I looked.

A watercolor from my photo at the park headquarters. These stone pines are found in clumps on the cinder cone hills surrounding Mount Etna.

Caffé Italiano

Caffé Italiano 

One of the many cups of caffè we drank in Sicily on our last trip to visit family. There is something truly special about coffee in a bar served in china even when you are at an auto stop along the freeway.
