Uh, I got too many photos... I better start posting some...
Let's start from this pre-surf sesh in Manhattan Beach (LA) shot. Looks like I could have used a few more hours of sleep...
Yeah, you get used to everything, but... gees, I love Hawaii's warm waters!
This is the first photo of Napoli. Dad told me that lately a book inspired lovers to put a lock with their name somewhere in town as a sign of commitment to eternal love.
I think it's soooo romantic... I couldn't resist and put one with Sharon's name on it...
By the way Sharon, don't forget to stop and add a name of a guy on it, next time you go to Naples!
What a brilliant symbolism, uh? I know too many people stuck in their relationships like if they were locked in them. And these guys even put a real lock... like what?!? Hoping that one day they will get stuck in it?!???
I'm sorry, my brain is too limited for that... I just can't get it...
Watching this water mellon in a window at the Gran Caffe' La Caffettiera (the one with a perfectly working wireless router, but without a modem cable attached, hence useless) I wondered:
1) how do you cut it like that?
2) how do you eat it now?
These billboards are dangerous... at least if I am the one driving!
I just can't make up my mind and choose my favorite between the one in the middle and the one on the right.
Actually, I wouldn't mind both... I'll go put two locks... you never know!
Let's see what you guys (and girls) think about it:
By the way, as a confirmation of what I wrote, I just heard on the news that in average every day in Italy 15 people die in car accidents...
The reasons to blame are:
- lack of respect of road rules
- poor status of the roads
- drugs and alcohol
Too bad they didn't say the related percentage. My guess is that 80% is caused by the first reason.
That's why I laugh at people who are scared by sharks. Let me throw you these statistics of year 2003 (the only one I know) again:
- number of people killed by sharks worldwide: 4
- number of ppl killed in car accidents worldwide: 1.3 millions
And, in case that wasn't enough, I just learned how many sharks are killed by humans every year: 73 millions. Most of which, just for the fins that seem to be particularly appreciated (specially in east Asia).
Excuse me if I express my thought once again: the human species sucks!
5am. The quality of this photo is rather poor, but I like the light anyway.
Saturday I went on a windsurfing trip with my old windsurfing buddies. We drove more than 200 km to the Adriatic sea to a spot called Termoli, because moderate NW wind was forecasted in that area. As usual, we didn't find it (the wind), but at least I could catch a few beach break waves and I even had some fun!
I forgot how frustrating windsurfing can be in Italy...
BTW, I always tell my surfing students not to look down on the board at any moment. Check where I'm looking on this late backside takeoff... pathetic!
Sunday morning 6am sun. I love this shot. Check the colors and that bird.
A little less zoom and it's not that impressive anymore... still nice, though.
Piscator' 'ru mar' 'e pusillec' (Posillipo fisherman).
Satellite TV is big in Italy. This photo makes me think about the amount of electro-magnetic fields we live in. Scary...
This is the smallest pile of garbage I've seen so far in this trip. I saw some as big as a train...
For some reason, garbage collection in Naples always seems to be a huge problem. Maybe because we produce too much... maybe we should learn how to reuse stuff...
The fact that they left it there and not in the garbage collection bin that was 30 yards/meter away didn't help either, I guess...
And this photo was taken in one of the richest hence supposingly most educated neighborhood of the town...
Wild haired niece.
Procida: interesting mooring technique.
Oh, btw, the title is this product that I would have needed this morning, instead of walking around with the computer open like one of those guys searching for water with a Y stick...
Many thanks to the unaware wireless network provider. For years I've been providing free wireless access with my router in Paia and Kuau, before being forced to enforce security by a unacceptable decrease of performance. So, I don't feel like I'm stealing... I'm just getting my karma bandwidth back...
