“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” – John Steinbeck
A jewel of exquisite beauty on the Amalfi Coast
Steep streets with endless turns
The warmth of a gentle breeze across the azure Tyrrhenian Sea
An unforgettable lunch at the beachfront restaurant Buco di Bacco
A vertical city built into the side of a cliff that hugs the coast
Quiet waves with a rhythm that soothes me to sleep
The sweet taste of cannoli and cappuccino at La Zagara
An artist’s expressions on canvas that reveal the tranquility at the beach of Spiaggia Grande
A young fisherman and his wooden boat at twilight
The magnificence of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta with its majolica-tiled dome
Glorious bougainvillea in hues of magenta and purple
The words here are from a page in Colors of Naples and the Amalfi Coast, my recently published photo book.
