Ear of Dionysius, Siracusa, Sicily, Italy

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

Leeds City Market, Leeds, UK

There are places you can walk in Leeds where you lose track of exactly what year it might be. Leeds City Market is one of those places. Under the glass and wrought cast iron architecture of the market it might be 1860, 1960, 2016. Do you only need to change your view a bit to enter an entirely different era.

Narrowboat “Malahat” on the Nottingham Canal, Nottingham, UK [Watercolor]

Narrowboat

Narrowboat “Malahat” on the Nottingham Canal, Nottingham, UK 

One of the many canal boats we saw in our Summer trip to Leeds, York and Nottingham. The brightly colored boats and their peaceful surroundings — even in the middle of urban areas — draw you in with dreams of gentle cruising, rural countryside and a life free from hurry and stress. While I am not sure it is bucolic as all that, it certainly makes your imagination run when you see them tied up alongside the canal.

York Minster Interior, York, UK 🇬🇧

The light and shadow inside York Minster are dramatic without being dark and oppressive like some older cathedrals. Light and color stream in through the windows and reflect off the light colored arches.

Yet another watercolor from within the York Minster. This time a view of the choir looking back into the main area of the church. I love how atmospheric this turned out.
