Lack of funds, it seems...

Beautiful! Great reflections and colors.
The colors reminds me of the colors I saw in Trastevere/ Rome.

It would be lovely to go for a walk along the canal.

What should be good, takes time.

Looks indeed like a kind and nice neighbourhood; worthwhile to spend time walking around.

Please have a good Friday you all.

I like the reflection in the second photo. The work looks great too.

I hope that funds are found quickly to complete the project! I agree about the attractive colours on the buildings.

It does look very nice, an improvement I hope. I hope 'lack of funds' doesn't mean there it will be until it falls into disrepair and have to be done again. Hmmm...did that make any sense? MB

I have to say it looks nice. Everybody seems to lack funds, including me.

Dina said...

Uh oh, lack of funds.
Meanwhile, please enjoy walking along the canal but don't try walking across.

How wonderful it looks. Thank you for showing us the canal with water in it. Well done, Livorno. Hopefully enough funds will be found to take this project to the end.

Very beautiful and I love the colors of the buildings.

Lack of funds... seems to be a problem everywhere. The buildings are nicely colored at least. They look very cheery!

JM said...

Beautiful colours and reflections on the still water.

VP - I certainly don't mind if you use my Thoughtless Thursday bench photo on your blog. Just please do give me credit.

The photo was shot at an old hardware store located on my small town historic square in central Kentucky. The building it sits in front of was built in 1908. Typically you don't see anyone resting on this bench. Mostly ment congregate inside to chat/gossip. I hope this information is helpful.

Neat reflection in this photo, VP.

Kaori said...

Well I love that reflection of the building! They're not the only ones lacking in funds...

Francisca said...

"Out of funds" seems to be the new battle cry these days. Pity. I sure like your second shot with the neat reflection.
