pictures from Napoli 1

For some reason, Blogger has decided to show only a small segment of a picture I took of a Naples street and blow it up to a huge size, above. No idea why.

I’m in London, staying with friends Christopher and Cristina and their gorgeous little girl Marina, who’s 11 months old. More about London anon. But they have wifi and it works! So I’ll start uploading shots from the last few days, before I get too far behind. Click to enlarge.

Neapolitans love miniatures. These are tiny pizza makers that move.


The majolica pillars in a cloister

Riot police waiting for a very small demonstration that veered off in another direction

A simple little shopping plaza

A simple little castle, right in the middle of the city

My friend doing what he does best – trying to find where the @#$# we are with his iPhone

An unusually crabby Virgin

The Farnese palace and art gallery

When we took the funicular up, we had a view of all Naples

A simple little church ceiling
