Another superyacht? Apparently, someone has too much money.

I like that chessboard image from the Terrazza.

The Terrazza Mascagni is such a beautiful place.

These are all beautiful photographs! I like the sharpness and the colors! The sky in that first shot is sooooo blue....then you composed the tile pic very well, and the yacht. Omigod, what can one say about that? I'm just surprised that it's not done yet so you could take it out for a trial run! ;-)

I like the first shot too. But that is some yacht in the third shot.

Are you sure it was John Masefield and not you who wrote the poem?

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face and a grey dawn breaking.

When one is used to being around water sll the time it does feel odd to be away from it.

Stunning photos.

Yeah, when are you going to take the yacht on a shakedown cruise? MB

I wonder if the Adora will be visiting Ft. Lauderdale this winter?

I thought the first photo was a chess board! Very Alice in Wonderland-ish ;D

Wow. That first photo is a winner.

Aside from the Amerigo Vespucci, I will never tire of your photos of the Terrazza Mascagni. I just love the dizzying pattern of the tiles!

I love that tiled ground. It makes a great effect on your composition.
