A varied group of photos. The sign confuses me; maybe I am one of the incompetents he describes.

I LOVE the sign! :))

Great skylights. Also, I always marveled at all of the television antennas in many cities in Europe.

What a nifty collection of images. :) Nice!

They sure say it like it is! Love it, the incompetenti sign.

I'm not surprised, there are more and more incompetents everywhere.

Those skylights are nice, but you have the gulls and I the pigeons...

I wonder what sort of incompetents they are thinking about, anyway - honest people:)
Lovely set, as usually!

A rich yield of the day! As everybody here I also laughed at the "incompetenti" sign. I also thought that there is a need for many such signs nowadays...

Halcyon said...

Such lovely details. I think you've got everyone wondering with that sign. :)

Birdman said...

Hilarious sign works. Makes the point!

JM said...

I have to ask you who the incompetenti are. Any idea? :-) Great lines on top and lovely railing at the bottom.

VP said...

Sorry, I don't know who the incompetents are in this case. I'll try to learn something more about this...

Dina said...

It sounds so much better in Italian--the incompetenti. Kind of mysterious.
