Photographer's Note

Another shot taken during a wonderful day of wandering aimlessly and slowly through the beautiful and ancient streets of Amelia in Umbria.

I fell in love with this beautiful old town, its ancient buildings, which showed the scars and the wear of centuries, its narrow characterful streets and, of course, its lovely people.

The relaxed atmosphere in the place was wonderful: like this little motorcycle abandoned right next to a "No Parking" sign - in Britain the local constabulary would have removed it and fined the owner, but here it was not causing any obstruction to traffic so it was ignored. Perhaps the fact that the motorcycle bears the name "Liberty" has something to do with it?

Shot in RAW and converted and edited in PSE9.
