Roving Pic: Night Walk in Anacapri

Anacapri at Night

We turned off the pedestrian street onto a narrow, residential walkway. Behind stucco walls and elegantly scrolled, wrought iron gates, we could see people gathered together in softly-lit gardens, on balconies and in dining rooms, celebrating a mid-summer evening. Glasses, heavy with wine, clinked together, toasting a beautiful moment in the Mediterranean. Laughter, lovely Italian phrases and lightness filled the air around us. And we walked back towards the main road in the dim light, taking our tiny snapshot of island life in Anacapri with us.

Beautiful! That's my favorite time of night...when the sky is still lit a little and throws blue all over your photos like that.

Although, I've been to many places in Italy, I've never been to Anacapri. But, I totally can visualize this street and the ambience as I believe there are streets like this in many towns and cities of Italy.

Thanks for sharing!
