The Way Ahead

Not sure if I am interpreting Paula’s prompt of ‘Way’ effectively, but decided I wouldn’t do signs or roads..

So, some interpretations of ‘The Way Ahead’, three of which are ‘through the archway’:

Ornate door, Keszthely Castle

Main street, Craco

Linked to Thursday’s Special: Way, here


  1. Archways are always irresistible, and you have an eye for them. Happy Sunday – at least that’s what it is here.

    • Sue

      I do indeed find archways irresistible, Meg! Still Saturday night here, but thanks for the early wishes, and have a great Sunday yourself!

  2. Suzanne

    I like your interpretation of the challenge. I particularly like the first photo.

    • Sue

      It’s funny, I came across it recently – I had scanned a slide from ages ago, pretty boring, then I did the monochrome conversion, and hey presto!!

  3. Nice captures, Sue. I especially love Main street, Craco. It’s so beautifully weathered. 🙂

    • Sue

      A ruined town that you can’t see much of now, it’s too dangerous… I would have loved to have seen it 30 years ag o, when it was used to film Carlo Levi’s ‘Christ Stopped at Eboli’….I have that film, and the place looks so atmospheric

      • I just looked up “Christ Stopped at Eboli.” It sounds great. I’ve added it to my watchlist. Why is it so dangerous now? That’s too bad.

      • Sue

        You should definitely read Carlo Levi’s book….. The place is dangerous because the houses are falling down, seriously unstable masonry. We were on a guided trip, with hard hats…..

      • Wow, that sounds adventurous! I just put the book on my Goodreads list. This sounds like just my cup of tea. Will have to go on my Italian book list. 🙂

      • Sue

        Glad to have made the recommendation. Incidentally, when my friend and I visited Matera, from where we did the Craco visit, we saw a couple of Levi’s paintings of the peasants who lived in that area…most evocative

      • That sounds wonderful. I hope to read that book before we go to Italy in 2019! 🙂

      • Sue

        Where are you going in Italy, or is it all yet to be decided?

      • I’d like to go everywhere in Italy, Sue! But of course, that’s not to be. We still have a long time to decide, since it won’t be until fall of 2019, and I have plenty of planning to do for my Four Corners road trip in May and the Camino & Portugal in the fall. My husband went to Italy during his first marriage, on his honeymoon, but now it’s been enough years since we’ve been married (it will be 31 by then), that I no longer feel I have to live up to his first experience! I’m gathering ideas whenever I run across blogs or articles in travel magazines. 🙂

      • Sue

        I know you will have a lot of fun planning, Cathy!

      • You’re right, Sue! That’s for sure. 🙂

    • Sue

      Oh, and I meant to say, the last image is from Craco, too

  4. Fabulous! I love them all, Sue, and I share your liking. 🙂 🙂 That’s Lucca in the third, isn’t it? Happy Sunday!

    • Sue

      Yay! And yes, Lucca in the third….Happy Sunday to you, Jo, any plans on this dull day?

      • Facebook has just reminded me of a walk up at Simonside in Northumberland that I expressed an interest in, Sue, but that’s not happening, sadly. It’s a bit of a drive up there and Mick has chores (as do I but I’m better at ignoring them 🙂 ). Sunny again, for now…

      • Sue

        Chores on a Sunday, Jo…. Mind, I do them any day that I feel up to it

  5. I am always tempted to walk through archways, wherever I find them. The deserted town is a great shot too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. You are a master of framing! I hope you know that! Love these captures….

  7. Excellent interprtation

  8. so beautiful! I love your ways! 🙂
