Amazing what your city have got of interesting and nice things! I really enjoyed your posting.

Steffe said...

Some nice findings here. But what is wrong with a normal billboard!

Luis Gomez said...

Love these. Such a great set of images.

T. Becque said...

Nice set of images to see your city! I like the mailboxes - your title is funny!

Jacob said...

Meandering...wandering...you do find some interesting subjects to photograph!

The first is funny. The second represents an unusual way to advertise goods at a supermarket. But I'd say it's probably effective.

So what's Che's attraction in Livorno and why not Ghandi?

The next tells me something fishy is going on in your town.

And you probably ought to stop in at the photographer's shop and give him or her some pointers.

Thanks, too, for the update on my bed on Paree...

I love those colorful mailboxes! And my husband would like the Parma ham. :)

Hilda said...

Another fun walk, VP!

I really don't like those mobile billboards; they just add to pollution (both environmental and visual).

The apprentice mailbox is cute and funny.

I'm enjoying all your finds today, but especially the junior mailbox.

So how long does it take for the little mailbox to grow to full size. Special training I'm sure. MB

The shop looks very English somehow. I didn't know the Livornese are revolutionaries of the sanguinary kind!
I just love the apprentice!
Supermarket with 500 other invicibly priced products? Where do you have supermarkets? I have never seen a real supermarket in Italy, only what we call "supérettes"!

What a great selection of photos! The first one's comment is my favourite :-)

A sale on Prosciutto? Where? I'll take it all.

JM said...

You made me laugh at the apprentice mailbox! :-) I haven't had lunch yet so you can easily imagine how I felt looking at the prosciutto di Parma shot! :-)

Sometimes opening your post is like opening a treasure box. You never know what you'll find in there.

Nori said...

you took lots of funny pictures!

Kaori said...

That first photo is too cute! And is that a real fish? ;-D
