Photographer's Note

The old town of Otranto is small but perfectly formed. We spent an interesting day wandering the streets, sitting in cafes and generally loafing about in a Mediterranean sort of way. This little alley is typical of the town: and not full of people in late September. This girl was a local: she reappeared a little while later serving behind one of the bars we stopped by in.

Otranto is located on the east coast of the Salento peninsula (the "heel" of Italy). The Strait of Otranto, to which the city gives its name, connects the Adriatic Sea with the Ionian Sea and Italy with Albania and Greece, from which we had sailed the day before.
