Photographer's Note

Ostuni, for reasons that I hope this photograph makes clear, is often known as the La Cittŕ Bianca ("The White City"). The old town, perched on a hill overlooking the coastal plain, can be seen from miles around, and is considered one of Southern Italy's most stunning small towns. It is a gleaming white splash of sun-bleached streets and cobbled alleyways that is a pleasure to explore, especially when we were there, towards the end of the season, when it wasn't too hot and the tourist traffic had abated. Indeed I had to wait several minutes before I was rewarded with a passer-by. And a nice one too!
