Now, when there is possibility of uploading bigger pictures, I can post some photos from my archive.
This is evening in Camogli. In high season, the beach is full of people. When I was there in early spring, it was still rather empty and a bit sleepy. i liked the small bars - spaghetteria, pasta fresca, foccaccieria,.. charming simple places for a meal.
Camogli is a small Italian fishing village and tourist resort located on the west side of the peninsula of Portofino. The name means "house of wives" ( casa delle Mogli). Camogli was in the late Middle Ages a considerable seaport. In its heyday, the fleet consisted of hundreds of Camoglis Tall Ships. It was called the "city of a thousand white sails." 1798, the city has a large contingent of Napoleon's fleet, which was beaten in Egyptian waters of the Nile by Admiral Nelson.
In 1880 the city had 500 patented ship captains. The former fishing village of Camogli, which now lives mainly from tourism, is known for its colorful houses that line behind the beach. The colors once helped the fishermen of Camogli, easier to catch the way back to their port.

Great capture of these colourful and interesting façades. The strip of beach with the boats drawn up makes a fine contrasting frame. The line of washing is well placed, offering a good focal point. A nicely lit image with good saturated colours.

colori, panni stesi e pasta, si si siamo in Italia.
Un bel tributo e una bella foto, bella l'inquadratura.
Uno scatto molto bello e ben riuscito, dove l'italianità c'è tutta.

Typowe włoskie miasteczko - z wywieszonym praniem :-).
Za kazdym razem jak przekraczałem granice francusko-włoska to rzucał mi sie w oczy kontrast. Po jednej stronie czysto schludnie, a zaraz za granica porozwieszane prania :-))).
Tu fajne sa te kolorowe kamienice troche jak z klocków lego.

J'ai eu le grand plaisir de passer quelques temps dans cette belle ville. J'ai aussi pris un repas mémorable dans le petit port et admiré les très belles couleurs de la ville, comme ici.

Piękne ! Poprostu piękne. Prawdziwe włoskie. szystko to takie nieśpieszne, słoneczne. Łodzie oczekują, ludzie i tylko Słońce nie czeka - świeci pięknie.
Ach - ja chcę do Włoch !!

Hi Malgo. A perfect spot to enjoy a spaghetti marinara.Superb colours, used now to catch the tourists. High buildings.Excellent details and ambiance without the tourist hordes. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.(As to your earlier question, yes I do hail from Tecoma.)

I like very much the combination of colors and all those windows crammed in the frame that create (at least for me) some idea of looking to a miniature...
rbassin (22715) 2013-08-02 4:53
C'est une très belle photo où couleurs et architecture forment un bel ensemble.
jhm (152232) 2013-08-02 4:56
We get a lovely big picture with the different facades and also everything in other colours.
Sharpness and clarity are very nice presented.
Excellent composition, nice captured, this is an splendid picture.
Very well done, TFS.

Hello MAlgo ,
These colorful facades are so attractive . So many details to look at , especially with the large "beta" version .
jemaflor (96775) 2013-08-02 7:14
Well framed, great result with a good light and colors capture, interesting buildings, perfect sharpness.
tyro (24654) 2013-08-02 7:18
An interesting note and a wonderfully colourful photograph which looks so very much better on the "Beta" version of TE because we can see it full-size there, even if we do have to "slide" from side to side to see the whole width of the picture.
Fabulous vibrant colours, lovely lighting, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.
serp2000 (44069) 2013-08-02 8:16
My compliments to your tip box too! ;)
I think the inhabitants of so picturesque house are very positive friendly and lucky people. Very nice photo, Malgo. Superb colors, fine details!

Hello Malgo - What a festival of colour and a photographers delight. If I was able to see this location in the flesh I would have to be dragged away! What a beauty Malgo and to think you have had this lurking in your archives for years!!!! TFS and have a great weekend. Rosemary
holmertz (52022) 2013-08-02 12:24
These are marvellous houses. Maybe more fun than really beautiful, but nevertheless quite stunning. You took a fine picture where you managed to include a lot of interesting details, including the obligatory Italian laundry.
bukitgolfb301 (41448) 2013-08-02 14:15
Hi dear Malgo, a great traveler!
Sorry again for my late reaction weekday, so busy for many things.
Wow so eye-catching and great appealing image full of brights acolors. The best cropped and reasonable framework image indeed. Details in each floor of each apartment are so intesrting to see. Wonderful posting again!
Thanks a lot and have a good weekend! Takero

Superbe photo de ces magnifiques façades colorées de ce village italien. Très bon cadrage.
siudzi (34141) 2013-08-02 23:40
Widok na te kolorowe domy jest imponujący! Jestem pod wielkim wrażeniem jak fantastycznie wpisuje się ten styl w charakter tego regionu Włoch. Znakomity kadr bez zarzutu! Super realizacja!
macjake (67534) 2013-08-03 0:35
easy to see why people love this photo!
bright colors always seem to win out on TE :)
excellent cut and crop of this amazing architecture, this is so rustic and beautiful all at the same time.
its photo's like THIS that I really want to capture when i visit Italy.
great shot, and i'm glad you got some of the ground with the boats too.
rychem (35313) 2013-08-03 3:02
No, kolory aż biją w oczy, nikt się takiemu widokowi nie oprze, fantastyczny zakątek, super ujęcie
marabu61 (10915) 2013-08-03 4:09
Amazing colors on this row of houses on the ligurian coast. There is so much going on here, one doesn't know where to start.
have a great weekend
I have yet to figure out how it works best with the new upload sizes here, as I had the feeling that my pictures became a bit mushy with the bigger size.
kasianowak (8885) 2013-08-03 7:56
Sliczne kolory i wzorki! Dobry pomysl na kompozycje - swietnie skadrowane i prawie abstrakcyjne.
photoray (13981) 2013-08-03 11:44
Excellent Camogli collage of compartment homes like an artist wall with multiple colored buildings, windows, balconies and a bit of wash hanging to dry.
Urs (14082) 2013-08-04 1:14
You are right there is pasta in Italia which has all colour tones and tastes. Instead of the pasta you simply framed some colourful houses and got the similar pattern. Vibrant colour hues with high sharpness. Well done
adramad (45350) 2013-08-04 4:59
A splendid image with this plane closed on facades group, a real delight to watch many details, the warmth of these colors gives a picture of a chromatic fabulous.
The light is magnificent and perfect sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a good Sunday.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2013-08-04 8:05
very nice contrast of colors and good details,
maloutim (9639) 2013-08-04 23:54
What a lovely, colorful row of buildings, serving as lighthouses :-) according to your interesting note !
As you mention, the large version allows better details, even more so in the Beta version.
I love those details : The shop signs, lots to see in the windows, on the balconies, on the washing lines... Who invented the rule of not drying your washing outside your building, because it's not supposed to be elegant ! I think it definitely participates to the charm of old, Mediterranean streets.
Thank you for sharing. It is a bright photo that cheers up my Monday morning to start my week.
Angshu (56750) 2013-08-05 0:25
Looks like a giant jigsaw with multitude of colours & windows. The more I see, the more I am fascinated with the details I can see...the windows, some open, some closed, some partially, the hanging clothes, the writings on the wall...amazing! Lovely!
mkamionka (36250) 2013-08-05 5:50
Ja uzywam nowej a wiec nie-beta wersji TE i dlatego na pierwszy rzut oka zdjecia maja podobny rozmiar. Sam postanowilem pozostac przy podobnych wymiarach a jedynie rozmiar pliku dopuszczam wiekszy tym samym moje zdjecia teoretycznie sa teraz nieco lepszej jakosci aczkolwiek niekoniecznie wygladaja na wieksze.
Bardzo ciekawa kompozycja kolory super ciekawe, zastanawiam sie gdyby tak polskie bloki pomalowac kilkoma jaskrawymi kolorami co by z tego wyszlo. W tym tygodniu bede zreszta w Polsce a wiec moze sprobuje cos wypatrzec. Bardzo ladnie pokazane taki kreatywny balagan bardzo rzucajacy sie w oczy.
COSTANTINO (64754) 2013-08-05 11:56
excellent impressive capture with fantastic
colors,it looks like toys,all those details
are very well composed,warm tones of colors
magic mix indeed
elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-08-05 16:59
Malgo, you got me really good with this one because I love Italy, I love the architecture, the colors, the people, the food, the culture, their language...everything about it..great picture, happy pictures, medicine for the eyes and the soul!
all the best
delpeoples (57636) 2013-08-06 2:39
Ciao cara Itchy Feet
Wow, I just love this. The tight framing is beautifully judged, there are sensational colours and graphism. Impressive sharpness and definition and the character of the place is palpable.
Thanks for sharing, you're getting me in the mood for Itchy Feet Travels
ikeharel (70725) 2013-08-07 0:33
Baeutiful red/yellow and orange colors, Malgo, and very well taken the scene over all of pic. space.
If would not be painted in "hot" colors, the waterfront houses would look grey and somewhat neglected, as other parts along the Genova beach strip, I saw last year.
willperrett (10609) 2013-08-09 0:39
Great, tight framing, and vivid colours really make this photograph work well. Good work.
Hansaphotos (8081) 2013-08-10 12:23
Absolutely an amazing scene. Splendid view of these colourful facades full of interesting details. Love the splash of blue and green in the shutters and boat. Excellent! TFS.
Have a nice WE.
Best regards, Erling

Hi Malgo !!
I wrote the critique more than one hr ago..... and it went missing.... I am glad that I double checked.
I said that spaghettis are very dear to my tummy..... so I love this photo ..... and with the strong colours I am sure that this village is visible from outer space !!!!
adores (45243) 2013-08-21 17:35
This is a very good one, not just because of the restaurants on the ground floor, but also and specially because of the details of the colourful buildings. You framed it very well and it's very nice to watch every single window, with the curtains, the clothes drying... The combination of colours is great!
taypejka (1689) 2013-09-03 5:51
Dawno nie odwiedzalam twojej galerii a tu pelno fajnych zdjec. Z sentymentu wybralam to zdjecie, bo juz ladne pare lat we Wloszech nie bylam a kiedys calkiem czesto. Ja tez lubie wloskie klimaty, architekture, zywa kolorystyke budynkow, ornamenty balkonow, okiennic i drzwi.
Mam pytanie, bo dowiedzialam sie od Deniza (rigoletto) ze w pazdzierniku odwiedzasz Stambul. Ja tez planuje tam byc (moj pierwszy raz), tylko nie wiem czy raczej pod koniec wrzesnia czy poczatek pazdziernika, w zaleznosci jak uda mi sie zalatwic w pracy (bo dopiero co wrocilam z urlopu). A ty w ktorej czesci pazdziernika i na jak dlugo? Mioze udaloby sie spotkac i razem poszwedac po Stambule?
milego dnia zycze
