More Cinque Terre - Saturday Snapshots

I had so much fun posting photos last week from our 2001 Cinque Terre trip that I decided to feature more for today's Saturday Snapshot post! These were taken with a film camera and they're not as sharp as you'd get with a digital, or maybe we just had a hazy day. I kind of like the soft look.

The Cinque Terre is known for its lemons
and its limoncello (or limoncino) liqueur.

Vernazza harbor

The best way to get around the Cinque Terre is
via water taxi. This one is in the Vernazza harbor.

"Departures for the Cinque Terre"
There's train service between the five towns,
but figuring out the schedule was a challenge for us!

Love the lemon shot. It's always nice to see photos shot with film, I think it made us take better shots,

Oh, I want to go there! I especially love the colors in the display (second photo); those lemons are truly gorgeous.

Thanks for sharing, and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

Sigh ... just so lovely!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Me too! I'd never tried it before we went to the Cinque Terre. Discovering local cuisine is part of the fun of traveling for me.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

You're right. We definitely stopped and planned before taking film photos. But I'll admit I like being able to take ten shots of the same subject without considering the cost of developing them.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you!

Cinque Terre is most definitely on my bucket list :) Thanks for the pics. Have you read the short story "Vampires in the Lemon Grove" by Karen Russell? Your mention of lemons in this post brought that story to mind because the vampires suck lemons instead of blood and it's set in Sorrento.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I'm glad you enjoyed my photos. No, I haven't read that book but I'll look for it. It sounds like a clever twist on the vampire legends.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

It's a lovely place. I hope you're able to visit someday.

Those were the days when we used film in our camera. I esp. like the second one here. Yes, all the lemons, since yellow is my fave colour. ;)

Sharon Taylor Xuereb said...

Beautiful photos as per usual Sandra!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Seems like almost everyone is a fan of lemons! So am I.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Yellow is such an optimistic color. No wonder we all like it.

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thank you!

Lindsay said...

As always you give us pictures that take us viewers there while remaining home.

The lemon shot is my very favorite... wonderful stuff Sandy. Feels almost as good as being there:)

Louise said...

Cinque Terre always looks so beautiful- almost enough to tempt me to forgo going to Paris to go to Italy. Thanks for scanning these to share with us.
