Lacy Summer Sunshine

During a summer cruise vacation, we stopped at Taromina, Sicily. It is by far one of the most beautiful locations in the whole world, looking over at the great Mt. Etna. Sightseeing, people watching, and great food are my favorites there. We take the elevators up to Taromina and walk the whole distance down to the amphitheater. We usually stop for a patio lunch before doing too much walking. In between times, there are so many beautiful shops to see and gaze at in wonder. This particular time, I saw a group of lace parasols arranged on the sidewalk in the warm afternoon sun. The stark white lace against the black tones of shadows made me stop and look. I did not move a thing, but I should have asked to do just that. I took a few photos, and moved on.
