Spello, a lovely town in the heart of Umbria, ancient Roman town "most splendid colony Julia," of that era are important remains, including the magnificent port of Venus. Equally rich are the monuments of a later period, palaces and churches, among which we note the larger church of Santa Maria Maggiore, with its splendid frescoes by Pinturicchio, stored nell'interna Baglioni Chapel, and Perugino.
But Spello is primarily a city on a human scale, with an historical center still lived streches to love and maintained by its inhabitants.
Worth a visit.

The road is so narrow. Only small vehicle can be driven on. The stone buildings are so beautiful. And of course, the flowers are beautiful too.

Seeing this picture, one can comprehend why Piaggio manufactures such a small three wheels vhicle, Silvio - no other car could ride the small alleis in the labyrinth built towns.
Fine view down the street, DOF and light managed super.

This rather cute little vehicle brightens the view just as much as a person would have done. It also helps us to realize how very steep this narrow street really is. Along with the plants, the lamps and the roofs this makes a very charming photo.

une scène de rue amusante et réussie. Une bien jolie ruelle fleurie et ensoleillée.

l'Ape che ci viene incontro non ha il pungiglione, ma forse fa più male così...
Bello scatto, una Spello diversa e resa originale dalla scena.

The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the truck or car. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Il faut bien choisir son véhicule adapté aux pentes raides pour circuler dans ces ruelles! Jolie rencontre.

Ciao Silvio, Another charming town from Umbria. usually I do not like the cars when I make photos, but this nice three-wheel adds to the charm. Lovely stone walls, flowers and lamps. Superb shot, for sure it is worth visiting, as the whole Umbria.

I like these kind of small towns with narrow little streets and original architecture, they are wonderful to explore. A lovely scene here including the little vehicle. It's interesting to see that all the houses are built from the same coloured stone.

another wonderful photograph with superb management of the exposure! The framing is perfect with great details of the old architecture, the lamps and the flowers. The pick up van of course is the cherry on the cake :).
Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

molto bella questa vista dal alto, mi piace molto come ci presenti questa lunga discesa e come hai riempito il quadro con la caratteristica architettura della cittadina pittoresca. Che fortuna avere questo veicolo carino nella composizione, la rende ancora piu' interessante, proprio eccezionale. Molto piacevole il gioco dei dettagli, la luminosita' e l' atmosfera. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona note,

What a quaint alley, portraying the play of light, the stunning tones, texture and wonderful insight of this place. I like the idea of adding the old vehicle just in the right place and I am wondering and looking deep into the picture letting those diagonals guide me in. The rustic look is remarkable. Great piece expertly taken, Congrats

Ciao ami Silvio
Superbe scène de ce véhicule a trois roues sur cette rue montante, bonne lumière, très belle image
batalay (34569) 2014-07-12 16:41
A timeless street, and the only appropriate vehicle to make deliveries! I like it very much. Of course, there was the smidgeon of danger in standing in the middle of the street while the little vehicle is approaching "at top speed," 5 km/hr. Wonderful shot, Silvio.

Hi Silvio, Very interesting scenery of this narrow alley and the small car makes it look even cuter. Lovely composition and the tall crop is perfect for the sense of narrow. Great light and tones with great details. Thank for sharing

Interesting Spello scene, the narrow path between the gothic classical town walls, balcony flowers, and the modern day cart - a gasoline powered 3 wheeler.
fritzi007 (2375) 2014-07-16 23:04
wirklich ein liebes, kleines Dorf! Mit einen großen Fahrzeug kann man hier nich fahren. Durch deine vielen Fotos über dieses Dorf wird es noch weltberühmt. Dein Foto ist perfekt.
Wünsch dir einen schönen Tag mein Freund

eldancer1 (24647) 2014-07-19 9:44
The street is so narrow not much room for real car or is there? Looks like the buildings and the street were built thousands of years ago. Nicely captured with sharp details. Well done, tfs.
