To jean113: not so very early

Thank you Jean,
It was not so early, 09:49. The British gentlemen having had their beer breakfast had probably been out and about for a while already.
Kind regards,
Gert

To Royaldevon: familiarity

Thank you Bev,
I am almost certain those men were British, but of course that doesn't necessarily mean they weren't familiar with the church. :)
Kind regards,
Gert

To Royaldevon: alcoholix

Thank you Bev,
Searching the net I got the impression the Alcoholix is the name of a popular restaurant, in which case they most likely understand the significance. It also seems to be the English...

To lousat: Thank you Luciano

Hello Luciano,
Thank you for your kind comments. Your enthusiasm is encouraging. But I have seen "degradation in the hearts of big cities" many times. I could mention Calcutta, Karachi, Kairo, just...

To Royaldevon: political?

Thank you Bev,
Yes, I had an idea that small shrine could have been dedicated to a victim of the mafia. In the cathedral of Palermo a rather large side chapel honours the memory of a priest who was...

To emka: pigeons

Thank you Malgo,
I thought you read the notes... :D I had explained that he was looking at the pigeons he had just chased away, seconds before I found a good photo angle.
Now go.

To Royaldevon: attention

Thank you Bev for your thoughtful comments.
The boy's grandfather actually paid him close attention from just outside the picture. Regarding the "theft" in the WS I assume they were friends. Or she...

To ChrisJ: note

Thanks Chris,
If you had actually read the note you would have seen the explanation for the boy's happy face. And if you had looked at the WS photos you would have seen the obscured tower clearly....

I can definitely see someone with a camera near the lower left corner, and maybe the jacket looks green. Or else it's just traces of spinach soup. :p

To tyro: madonella

Thank you John,
I had also never heard the word "madonella" until a couple of days ago, when I made some research for the note. But I remember such free-standing shrines on Crete, and I also think...

To PaulVDV: cropping, corner

Thank you Paul for your two critiques,
Normally I would have cropped that right part, but as I was about to do it, I thought it was a nice idea to let the girl remain on the site a few moments...

To lousat: darkness

Thank you Luciano,
I don't know if parts of Palermo were dangerous, I just quoted a city guide on the internet. In the daytime, or in major streets in the evenings, I felt perfectly safe. The last...

I thought the same, but I guess that old books on geometry or optics are not so high on most thieves wish list. And maybe the local "family" keep an eye on the library. :cool:

Thank you Luciano,
No, my Italian is not perfect, but I saw the spelling mistake and indicated it by quoting it as "bibliteca". But I didn't notice the tiny o that someone had inserted. It's really...

To emka: capella palatina

My favourite place (apart from the streets) was also the Capella Palatina, but I didn't take any photos there. I don't carry a tripod and I don't want to use a flash. There are...

To lousat: city

Thank you Luciano,
It often happens to me that the name of the city is lost, so that I must make a new attempt. Another TE bug? I have entered it now.
