Easter Monday

Bird on a tree, piazza della Vittoria, LivornoMy Sunday walk took place on a fine Easter Monday. I caught this guy sitting on a budding tree branch in “Piazza della Vittoria”.Mural, via Mayer, LivornoEvery period has its own art: this mural is in “Via Mayer”, on the wall below the Topless Sphinx.Following the weather, the local fauna is changing, as you can see in this window in “Via Magenta”.People keep evoking the sun from the facade of their houses.What about this colorful pair of ladies shoes?

Great pictures! Love how colorful they are!

Jacob said...

A very enjoyable walk, indeed. The photo of the bird is superb...methinks he was posing for you and you did right by him!

You could title this post, "Colorful Livorno."

You always seem to find and photograph some very fun and interesting things on your walks with your camera!

I love the bird pic and the link to the sphinx!

Dina said...

Pretty shoes, although I'll never understand high heels. The hanger behind them is fun too.

Thanks for another fun stroll.

Very successful walk VP!The guy in the first photo must have been singing its beautiful song, mural is funny as well as sun and the lovely little creatures, and the shoes - wow, I would love to have pair (only to look at them since probably wouldn't be able to walk!!!)

Kaori said...

Ooh! Great shoes!

Halcyon said...

You really caught the bird well. Funny how they seem to have expressions.

I like the other details as well. And the shoes - pretty, but impractical.

A fun little stroll with you. I like that hanger.

The shoes don't work for me. Sure looks like it was a good walk, however.

Wonderfully eclectic collection from this walk, VP. The glass statues are so pretty and I wouldn't mind having a colorful sun on our house either. The shoes are pretty, but those heels are way too high. I can just see myself wobbling down the street…

But what about the beaded hanger?
thanks for taking us on your Sunday/Monday walk. So healthful---I feel good now. MB

Lois said...

The shoes are nice, but I want that hanger! I like the bird too.

I love that coat hanger. Was the bird chirping at the sight of those shoes?

Per Stromsjo said...

A Sunday walk on a Monday!? What's become of this world! ;)

Gunn said...

Very different, interesting, colorful & nice!
Love Italian shoes.... (too :-)

James said...

I like the sun even though it's too hot in Newtown about 33c. So I think I like the penguins better especially since they have nice reflections in them. The black bird is the best of all imo.

JM said...

The blackbird shot is fantastic, but I can't help mentioning how cool de polar bears and the last composition in general are!

Wolynski said...

Very colorful Easter - love the shoes, but even better, the hanger behind them.

Beautiful photo of the bird.
