While in Little Italy we didn’t have time to visit this art gallery, but I like the advert hanging on the wall:
I shot these succulents while waiting for the light to turn at a crosswalk. The leaves almost look like they have edge stitching.
A colorful vignette on a table outside one of the many boutiques.
Pink mandevilla with some colorful framework.
Filippi’s Pizza Grotto is an authentic Italian market, restaurant and pizza joint. I love their lasagna. The place is an institution.
After all, they’ve been. . .
This hand-painted sign really reminds me of Europe.
As you’re walking down India Street, remember to look left so you’ll see the ships in San Diego Bay:
More mandevilla against an aquamarine wall. Or is it teal?
When we left Little Italy, the light had gotten even more mellow, so I took one last shot of the Citroën in front of a Necco-wafer-colored high-rise. . . .
Great weekend, everyone!
It’s amazing how bright everything out there is. The sun was out today in London and I was enthralled with the brightness. it has been so grey lately. Enjoy the colors. Have a wonderful weekend!
I once lived in an area that had gray skies all winter. One time a movie set in California appeared on TV and I almost leaped at the screen to get closer to the blue skies and sunniness. (Is that a word?) I’d never make it in London or Seattle, as much as I love both places.
Very pleasant walk around Little Italy:)
Thank you, glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
Ooh these colors. I can really feel them tickle my eyes. I like all of them.
I would have called that color turquoise. I think it’s my favourite of these photos.
Tickle my eyes–I like that. Yes, of course, turquoise!
Great photos Carole! I love the mandevilla shot. Gorgeous!
I, too, love the vibrant colors. it feels so tropical and energizing. It’s been gray, gray, gray here for at least a week. A peek of blue sky came out today but then was gone in about an hour.
Really hope you get some nice autumn weather soon, Jackie. You all deserve it.
Such beautiful colours again, and the second last photo is a stand out.
Thanks so much, Marina. Have you reached California yet?
You have a great weekend too, Carole. This array of fabulous photos has me feeling like I’ve been there … on the travel list. In the meantime I’ll have to visit Little Italy in Toronto!
I really want to see Toronto and Montreal some day, Cheryl. The list just gets longer and longer.
You just find the colors wherever you go! 😉
They do seem to pop out at me. 🙂
