A Calendar from Livorno

Old Eglish Cemetery, Livorno
[Photo by Matteo Giunti]
Our friends Sarah Thompson (Livorno Now) and Matteo Giunti (Leghorn Merchant Networks) have just published a new calendar illustrated with some photos of Livorno taken by local amateur photographers. Trillian and I made our contribution with a few pictures and we are quite proud of it.
The calendar can be purchased for a price of 10 Euro and all the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the association taking care of the Old English Cemetery in Livorno.

Congratulations VP! I like this image very much, especially the way the light falls on this bold plant, growing from a tombstone. Wonderful work :^)

This is a most evocative photo, VP. A real beauty.

Having a large bird hotel in the middle of a very formal walkway to a formal house is very unusual. I have not seen it before. Usually they would be unseen behind the house, or maybe inconspicuously at the side.

Must be a wonderful calendar if this photo is included.

Congratulations, VP, good for you both! A new life growing on the place were a former one has been, it is a touching subject.
