This week, Ailsa has us posting images that say ‘through’ for her Weekly Travel Theme over at Where’s my Backpack.I know some of my fellow bloggers have considered this carefully, but I want to continue using some of my recent images from my short travel trip to Italy, and have been quite lazy. My images are mostly to do with “what’s through that door/arch/whatever”. Simples! Also, I must confess the shots are still mostly to do with abandonment, ruins and decay, but as this is one of my ‘things’, so be it!
The final image is from La Raccolte delle Aqua in Matera – the old system of water collection used to provide to the entire population of the Caveoso with sufficient water for their daily living. The system of communicating vessels allowed rainwater to collect from roofs, streets, and the surrounding hills, and is now open with a walkway for tourists to see the sheer scale of this. Absolutely incredible (a couple of the images I posted for Lines and Patterns were also from here).
So, let me know what you think – do these say ‘through’ for you?
