bellissimo, Narmer

The old lady and the old door is great (reminds me of my youth in Italy)

As usual great shots Narmer. Were pics 3 and 4 taken in Italy?

Macnite they are from San Marco dei Cavoti (Benevento) south Italy, 2 hours and a half from Napoli.
Like most people in Quebec (and in Louisiana, Bayourebel) this enclave was founded by French (Gavots, from French town of Gap in Provence) about AD 1350.

Nice set and nice gallery. I love the dog.

All very good, but #3 grabs me. Makes me want to know, what is this place? What do 33 and 35 represent; what is the bundle of wood about; the chain? Very interesting photo.

for the place see my reply above. The bundle of branches is probably to switch fire and the numbers are civic number of the lane houses.

I insisted to make the old woman pass by but she wanted: a posteriori it seems the pics is better like this than it would have been with her crossing the old door

Thanks Narmer, as you guessed my ancestry is definitely French, via Nova Scotia. The elderly lady by the old door was a favorite of mine also. I really study the clock, and noticed it was a 24 hour clock. Do you know how old the clock is? I find it very interesting and historical to view the photographs from what we call the Old World. I don't believe there is a building here, that will ever see as many centuries past as there are in your part of the world. We Americans seem to love to tear down and rebuild. I can't tell you how many perfectly nice (fairly new) buildings I have seen demolished because it didn't quite the new owners idea of architexture. Remodeling and restoration seems to be out of the question a majority of times. In this respect I think we are very wasteful of all our natural resources.

I apologize for getting on a soap box.

Great shots, Francesco, and I love your galleries on zoto. Can't wait to go to Italy again soon.
