I love to photograph people in their daily lives. The people watching here in Italy is fascinating and we have been able to do lots of it in Vernazza. We spent the day wandering around the tiny village and sitting in the several bistros with their brightly colored umbrellas, sipping cappuccino or vino and enjoying the parade of wonderful local Italians going about their business.
In addition to the locals, we met some other tourists and enjoyed getting to know them. This morning, we were delighted to encounter an Israeli couple we had met Thursday on the train to Monterosso and enjoyed lunch with them. In yet another bistro at dinner, we had a mouth watering seafood dinner, enjoyed an evening of conversation with a newlywed couple from Cincinnati, and were generally raucus.
Here are just some of the many interesting people who passed in front of my lens today, some more scenes in Vernazza including the street leading to the 50 some steps and sloped passageways that took us to our room.
