Ortygia, Siracusa, Sicily, Italy - Watercolor

Ortygia, Siracusa, Sicily, Italy – Watercolor 

Boats docked on Ortygia, the island that is the historic center of Siracusa, Sicily. This is a perfect example of why you need to take a photo even if the conditions aren’t perfect. This was taken from a moving car as we headed out of town. And I just tried to grab it as We passed. It came out better than I ever would have expected.

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
