Cliche montage [20080129|21:49]

Ciao, baby

This picture is a near-perfect montage of Sicilian cliches. The tiny red candy-like moped. The smashed cigarette packet. The severely neglected building exterior (of an important government facility). The only thing it lacks is the sullen-faced Italian in puffy jacket, designer sunglasses and manicured eyebrows (male or female - it doesn't really matter) responsible for all those discarded fag ends.

i know precious little of Sicilian cliches, but the way you wrote about the picture made me feel an almost intimate connection with the subject. i love your observations of everyday life - you really bring out the beauty in it all. thank you.

Wow. You know, sometimes I get insecure when a post containing a photo or a painting that I worked fairly hard on doesn't get many comments. But in this case, quality definitely wins out over quantity. Thank you very much. You made my day.
