Photographer's Note

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.
