Colours are everywhere and when we need them the most. Thus, a grey day is never entirely grey if we keep our eyes open.

Sort of encouraging.

How great a picture the third one is !

Please have a good Thursday.

Luis Gomez said...

Lovely! I agree with Robert. I like the third one a lot.

Randy said...

I love the colors in all three photos.

Dina said...

That's a good challenge and attitude toward life, to seek out color within the overall grayness.

The puppet is terrific and I like so much colours in your photos! Great post for the first day of autumn:)

Three wonderful shots.

Color and light - what photography is all about! Great job here. The witch is sooo very interesting. I'd also wonder what is the point? Maybe it's a hex on another sailor or ship?

Glad to hear you're having a great time! I'll look forward to seeing more wonderful photos from the "eternal" city.

A lot of color to be found for such a grey day.

Excellent shots.
When I was a kid we used to watch the old fishermen sitting on the dock by their boats repairing their nets.
My best friends family (when I was young) were fishermen and we were allowed to be on their boats. MB

The witch looks freakishly real! You find so many interesting things on your walks ;D

Halcyon said...

Ha! I like the witch. Hope she's good at warding off the evil eye.

JM said...

In my opinion the last composition is a winner!

Francisca said...

Ah, VP in an artsy mood. Well done. I like the yellow and blue against the gray on the top photo, but I agree with JM, the third gets the award today. (It's been a busy week for me; just catching up with blogging! Hope you two are having a great time in Rome.)
