I spent a lovely day on Capri in April of this year, and I was already in the process of planning a post entitled "A Day in Capri" when I saw that Carmi had put up It's in the Details for this week's Thematic Photographic theme...
I kept my post but decided to zero in on the details and leave the
big-picture shots for another time. Please click to see even more detail!
You get to the island after a short ferry trip from Naples:
It's always intriguing to look up and see details on the buildings:
And as always, it's just as fascinating to watch people as anything else around you:
Many of the hotels have beautiful tiled signs. The Quisisana is the top place to stay on the island (no, we didn't stay there):
Maybe this one was more down-market:
There were some really lovely flower beds in the public gardens -
and also some detailed tiling on a beautiful seat - not sure it
would have been too comfortable, though:
There are tiled signs everywhere
And I especially liked the bull with one red horn outside the La Palma:
And finally, some detailed advice on personal safety...
I had great fun cropping these pictures to look more closely! Hope you have enjoyed walking around Capri with me. Go here to see more posts around this theme.
