Palermo, "Four corners" / Quattro canti

    Newer Older

    "Quattro canti", meaning "Four Corners", once was the center of Palermo. Now it is thick with traffic.

    The facades of the houses are rounded - this is not distortion by a fisheye lens, just a rectilinear wideangle (15 mm)!

    Blue hour on the Piazza Duomo in the historic city of Siracusa, Sicily, Italy.

      Neat shot. What a great looking photo. Love the angle and the fact that you weren't run over taking the shot.
